About the Book .. :


Managing & Using Information Systems: A Strategic Approach provides a solid knowledgebase of basic concepts to help readers become informed, competent participants in Information Systems (IS) decisions. Written for MBA students and general business managers alike, the text explains the fundamental principles and practices required to use and manage information, and illustrates how information systems can create, or obstruct, opportunities within various organizations.
This revised and updated seventh edition discusses the business and design processes relevant to IS, and presents a basic framework to connect business strategy, IS strategy, and organizational strategy. Readers are guided through each essential aspect of information Systems, including information architecture and infrastructure, IT security, the business of Information Technology, IS sourcing, project management, business analytics, and relevant IS governance and ethical issues. Detailed chapters contain mini cases, full-length case studies, discussion topics, review questions, supplemental reading links, and a set of managerial concerns related to the topic.
