PREFACE:

PREFACE

The eighth edition of Accounting Information Systems is suitable either for a first course in business processes or Accounting Information Systems taught at the undergraduate or graduate levels. The text's emphasis on business processes and internal controls makes it ideal for a first course in business processes, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), AIS, or for preparation for the auditing course.

The eighth edition stresses information, communication, and electronic commerce applied within the context of business processes, transaction cycles, and the internal control processes. Detailed material on business and internal control processes is central to the textbook's organization. The business process chapters are SAP oriented and rely heavily on SAP concepts but do not require the instructor to possess technical expertise in SAP They are also consistent with other, non-SAP, approaches to ERP such as PeopleSoft's.

An understanding of business processes is fundamental to contemporary auditing, professional, and legal considerations relating to an organization's internal control processes. Each process is subject to loss exposures. Management should develop detailed control objectives for each process. Such control objectives provide a basis for analysis and audit of an organization's internal control processes as well as a basis for managing the loss exposures that are associated with an organization's dependence on information systems.

NEW AND RETAINED FEATURES

  • Updated coverage of contemporary information technology including ERP, Web-based commerce, EDI, EFT paperless accounting systems, security,and disaster planning.
  • Expanded coverage of electronic commerce.
  • Completely rewritten and reorganized chapters 7, 8, and 9 reflect the current emphasis on business processes.
  • Streamlined from 18 to 16 chapters with systems analysis and design now covered in one complete chapter.

  • Extensive CPA examination problem set (multiple-choice and essay questions) pertaining to business processes and internal controls contained in the text, with answers and explanations in the Instructor's Manual.
