Overview

Surprisingly, although we always hear about the relentless and perpetual change in technology, the basic organization of hardware and software building blocks, data types and operating concepts remain constant. This book provides a solid foundation to enable IS professionals to create effective computer specification, to understand the behavior of computer programs, to understand the capabilities, strengths, and limitations of current computer technology and to translate current jargon into understandable concepts.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An accessible textbook that introduces the basics of computer architecture and systems software. The first part, an introduction and overview, is followed by four parts each of which deals with a single architectural aspect of the computer system: principles of data, hardware, software, and data communications. Specifically directed toward IS and IT majors, the text assumes only familiarity with a personal computer and basic programming skills. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
