DESCRIPTION

The 2nd international edition of Fundamentals of Business Information Systems continues to offer a concise overview of the key principles of information systems, using the same nine-chapter format as the original US text, but with new content and updated global examples threaded throughout. Readers gain a captivating overview of the IS discipline and the rapidly changing role of today's IS professional. New references and cases in each chapter bring the latest IS topics and examples to the forefront, clearly demonstrating the emphasis today's organizations place on innovation and speed. Seasoned authors Ralph Stair and George Reynolds are joined by Thomas Chesney (Nottingham University Business School) and together they weave the fundamentals of managing information systems into an understandable and engaging text that is mapped specifically to the requirements of students studying in the United Kingdom, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Its concise overview of IS provides readers with the knowledge they need to function more effectively as workers, managers, decision makers, and organizational leaders in business today. This textbook is autopackaged with Coursemate. CourseMate brings course concepts to life with interactive learning, study, and exam preparation tools that support the printed textbook and the textbook-specific website. CourseMate includes an integrated eBook and interactive teaching and learning tools including quizzes, flashcards, videos, and more and an EngagementTracker, a first-of-its-kind tool that monitors student engagement in the course.
