For courses in structured systems analysis and design.

Prioritising the practical over the technical, Modern Systems Analysis and Design presents the concepts, skills, methodologies, techniques, tools, and perspectives essential for systems analysts to develop information systems. The authors assume students have taken an introductory course on computer systems and have experience designing programs in at least one programming language. By drawing on the systems development life cycle, the authors provide a conceptual and systematic framework while progressing through topics logically. The 9th edition has been completely revised to adapt to the changing environment for systems development, with a renewed focus on agile methodologies.
New to this edition
  • A section on Scrum has been added to the new edition, supplementing the long-included material on extreme Programming.
  • An updated, extended section on information systems security in Chapter 13 includes new examples of systems implementation failure.
  • Dropped and altered material reflects industry changes. Chapters 1, 6, and 7 no longer include computer assisted systems engineering (CASE) tools; the appendix on UML sequential diagrams has been deleted; and Appendix 7C is now about business process management notation.
