Overview

Black & White Business Computing provides a broad view of information technology (IT) with a special emphasis on applying IT in the business environment. Instructors teaching core information technology classes often face questions such as: Why do I have to know this? Why does an accounting major need to know the difference between a motherboard and a keyboard? To such queries, Black & White Business Computing has answers in every chapter. While it will not make non-IT majors into experts at all facets of computing, it will enable them to be an intelligent part of the conversation and begin to prepare them for business decisions related to computing.

Black & White Business Computing introduces the important baseline concepts of information technology and business, demonstrates their dependency on one another, and then expands those concepts with real-world examples and applications. The text is specifically designed to be repetitive. Many concepts and terms, like networking, storage, and connectivity, are not limited to a single chapter, but are introduced in many different contexts and examples. Black & White Business Computing prepares students for successful academic careers in a business school setting by familiarizing them with basic aspects of computer information systems.
