The objective of Management Information Systems is to provide a real-world understanding of information systems (ISs) for business and computer science students. Like its predecessor, this Seventh Edition provides students with a firm foundation in business-related information technology (IT) on which they can build successful careers regardless of the particular fields they choose. They may find themselves formulating strategic plans in executive suites, optimizing operations in businesses or on factory floors, fine-tuning plans for their own entrepreneurial ventures, designing ISs to optimize their organization’s operations, working as consultants, augmenting business activities on the Web, or creating valuable new information products in any number of industries.
Ultimately, the integration of technology into the strategy and operations of a business is an important factor in its success.
