Book Description:

…looks at computing as business history…from the perspective of the business historian and business manager.

From the Publisher:

The relative impact of the use of computers and the intensified reliance on information as an input, product, and integral part of the modern business experience are topics of great significance. Cortada presents a thorough, well-written, and extensively documented overview of the current state of research into the history of computing and data management, providing examples, demonstrating alternative approaches, and suggesting viable issues that deserve more reflection and analysis. Written as a detailed and extensive bibliographic essay, this book provides some of the material necessary for researchers with diverse interests to examine the effects and implications of information technology....with this study [Cortada] provides a great service to other historians by encouraging and assisting in further historical analysis. Novices and experts alike will find interesting and worthwhile issues raised and be induced to frame new questions and develop new research projects. Recommended for upper-division undergraduate through practitioner collections.
