Introduction to Information Systems, 4th edition

  • Patricia Wallace


For courses in Information Systems.

A contemporary introduction to information systems that focuses on human elements
Revel Introduction to Information Systems teaches students 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.
