“Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don't think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without talking about the other.”

—Bill Gates, Microsoft

 

Exploit the potential of technology for competitive advantage in business

[body copy]

Information systems are at the heart of virtually every business interaction, process, and decision, especially given the vast penetration of the Web in the last few years. Like previous editions, this fourth edition of Managing and Using Information Systemsby Pearlson and Saunders gives you the foundation to become a knowledgeable participant in information systems decisions and to manage information for competitive advantage.

 

In a departure from earlier editions, this new edition includes ideas that impact the new generation of “digital natives”—managers who are at home in the digital world and expect to leverage in their business lives the technologies they depend on for social interaction, collaboration, and innovation.

 

Brief, yet complete, this text provides a basic framework for understanding the relationships among business strategy, information systems, and organizational strategies. You’ll learn how IT relates to organizational design and business strategy. Most of all, you’ll develop the skill to recognize opportunities in the work environment and to apply what you know in innovative ways.

 

Whether you’re coming from IS or the business management side, Managing and Using Information Systems, Fourth Editionwill give you a valuable grasp of how technologies affect business decisions, so you can grab every opportunity for business success.

This new Fourth Edition includes:

  • A new chapter on sourcing to make the material more relevant
  • New introductory cases that highlight how the information is applied in the field
  • Updated “Food for Thought” sections that focus on current topics
  • The latest information, including a new focus on Web 2.0, a new framework of managerial levers, and a new discussion on collaboration
  • Updated examples and new end of chapter cases offering a global outlook and a new focus on managing IT projects

Synopsis:

Now updated and revised, this Third Edition of Managing and Using Information Systems by Pearlson and Saunders arms you with the insights and knowledge you need to become an active participant in information systems decisions. Taking a strategic approach to information systems, the authors show how to manage information as a resource and use information for competitive advantage.

This brief, yet complete, paperback provides a basic framework for understanding the relationships among business strategy, information systems, and organizational strategies. You'll learn how IT relates to organizational design and business strategy, how to recognize opportunities in the work environment, and how to apply current technologies in innovative ways.
