A functional text for turning concepts into practice

Experiencing MIS illustrates how organizations use information systems to solve business problems every day. Technology is fundamentally changing the way organizations operate, enabling them to be more productive, innovative, and adaptable. Graduates need to know how to apply emerging technologies to better achieve their organizations’ strategies. This modular text uses illustrative cases, exercises, projects, and other aids to connect concepts to everyday life. The 9th Edition takes into account recent major technological advances, including self-driving cars, smart devices, virtual reality, automated workforces, and data breaches. These developments are reflected in new case studies, new career and ethics guides, updated statistics, and refreshed chapter content.

Also available as a Pearson eText or packaged with MyLab MIS
