Modern Systems Analysis and Design is your practical guide to the concepts, skills, methodologies, techniques and tools needed to develop information systems as a systems analyst. Successful completion of an introductory course on computer systems and experience designing programs in at least 1 programming language are a proper foundation for this text. Drawing on the systems development life cycle, the authors will provide you with a conceptual and systematic framework while progressing through essential topics logically.

The 9th Edition updates reflect the changing environment for systems development, with a renewed focus on agile methodologies. Throughout the text, screen captures, figures, tables, and related content have been refreshed. References to more than 100 books, journals, and websites have also been made current.
