Help students understand the ways information systems are transforming business

As technology continues to change the way organisations do business, knowledge of MIS is critical. Experiencing MIS illustrates how organisations use information systems to solve business problems every day. This modular text uses illustrative cases, exercises, projects, and other aids to ensure students connect concepts to everyday life by making MIS interesting and relevant to them. Changes and highlights in the 8th Edition keep pace with the fast-moving world of MIS and keep students up to date and knowledgeable on how to apply emerging technologies to better achieve their organisation’s strategies. Unique and updated guides within each chapter highlight themes in ethics, security, MIS careers, and other timely topics.
Features
  • A modular approach offers instructors flexibility in covering the material
  • Twelve short chapters cover the basic material.
  • 19 optional chapter extensions delve deeper into specific topics for instructors choosing to.
  • Four chapter extensions cover Microsoft Access and Excel 2016 skills and provide Office Application Exercises in Microsoft Excel or Access 2016 for integration into the course.
  • Career Guides in each chapter let students read firsthand accounts from people working in information systems jobs. Each of these guides is written by a MIS graduate and answers questions like “How did you get this type of job?” and “What does a typical workday look like for you?” These new guides answer some of the common questions students may have about working in the field.
  • Ethics Guides in each chapter focus on current issues in information systems and are designed to stimulate thought, discussion, and active participation in order to help students develop problem-solving skills and become better business professionals.
  • Cloud-based content explains where the cloud came from and how it differs from previous architectures, including new discussion about scalability and the advantages of cloud-based services. New graphics more clearly differentiate between IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS.
  • An artificial intelligence (AI) chapter extension focuses on the impacts of AI on organizations and workers with a look at why AI has become so important within the last few years and the long-term goals of this technology.
  • Falcon Security case vignettes introduce Chapters 1—6 with case scenarios for a privately owned company that provides surveillance and inspection services for companies using flying drones. The case vignettes provide opportunities for students to practice key skills from Chapter 1: Assess, evaluate, and apply emerging technology to business.
  • Discussion of ARES Systems introduces Chapters 7 through 12 with cases for this real-world prototype for a cloud-based augmented-reality exercise startup.
