Introduction to Information Systems will teach you what information systems are all about and why they are so fundamental to business and society. While discussing business strategies, technology trends and innovations, and other major topics rigorously, the text enriches those topics with probing discussions about the roles people play in building, shaping, implementing, and sometimes obstructing information systems.

The 4th Edition features many new discussions and examples about emerging technologies and industry trends. Beyond memorizing terms and concepts, the text includes new interactive role-playing simulations. Each simulation is an opportunity for you to apply and experience chapter knowledge in action and then assess your choices based on the feedback provided.
