Fundamentals of Information Systems, Third Edition continues to offer a concise nine-chapter overview of information systems. Information technologies and the strategies for managing them change quickly, but the principles that guide both often remain timeless. These principles form the backbone of this comprehensive survey of the field, designed for a student's first course in information technology. By presenting the details and the big picture, Ralph Stair and George Reynolds put the lessons of managing information systems into an understandable context. This new Third Edition offers completely updated coverage as well as an increased focus on the effects of globalization. Readers get the necessary foundation in information systems-a base needed by every businessperson, regardless of his or her specialization.
