Kroenke show students exactly how businesses use information systems and technology to create competitive strategies, support business processes, and accomplish their goals. Complete with numerous examples of business situations, this book helps students understand what business systems actually are and why they’re so important.
In the 3rd Edition, you’ll find a reflection of the current technological landscape, coverage of technologies new to the business scene, and a strong emphasis on security. Its clear and concise presentation, within the process context, makes Processes, Systems, and Information the ideal book for majors and non-majors alike.
