Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This supplement text bridges the gap between the fundamentals of how businesses operate (processes) and the tools that business people use to accomplish their tasks (systems). The authors have developed this text for an introductory MIS or general business course to establish a fundamental understanding of business processes. Business students, regardless of their functional discipline, will be able to apply the real-world concepts discussed in this text immediately upon entering the workforce.  

As more and more businesses adopt enterprise systems globally, it becomes increasingly important for business schools to offer a process-based curriculum to better reflect the realities of modern business.  Given the integration of business operations and enterprise systems, Magal and Word have designed this text to reflect, in a practical and accessible format, how real-world business processes are managed and executed.

Synopsis:

Written in partnership with SAP, this is the first IS book that provides the right introductory content and combines it with hands-on practice in the form of a simulated SAP environment. It also offers a unique perspective by discussing both the typical processes in organizations and the role of information systems in supporting these processes. Readers will learn about the steps that enable businesses to function and the enterprise software needed for the successful execution and management of those operations.
