Overview

Many professionals and students in engineering, science, business, and other application fields need to develop Windows-based and web-enabled information systems to store and use data for decision support, without help from professional programmers. However, few books are available to train professionals and students who are not professional programmers to develop these information systems. Developing Windows-Based and Web-Enabled Information Systems fills this gap, providing a self-contained, easy-to-understand, and well-illustrated text that explores current concepts, methods, and software tools for developing Windows-based and web-enabled information systems.

Written in an easily accessible style, the book details current concepts, methods, and software tools for Windows-based and web-enabled information systems that store and use data. It is self-contained with easy-to-understand small examples to walk through concepts and implementation details along with large-scale case studies. The book describes data modeling methods including entity–relationship modeling, relational modeling and normalization, and object-oriented data modeling, to develop data models of a database. The author covers how to use software tools in the Microsoft application development environment, including Microsoft Access, MySQL, SQL, Visual Studio, Visual Basic, VBA, HTML, and XML, to implement databases and develop Windows-based and web-enabled applications with the database, graphical user interface, and program components.

The book takes you through the entire process of developing a computer and network application for an information system, highlighting concepts and operation details. In each chapter, small data examples are used to manually walk through concepts and operational details. These features and more give you the conceptual understanding and practical skill required, even if you don’t have a computer science background, to develop Windows-based or web-enabled applications for your specialized information system.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book takes a comprehensive approach to cover the topics of information systems and their development. At the same time it has detailed examples to help readers at different levels. … detailed examples and case studies makes it a good textbook and reference for readers of diverse backgrounds."
—Xiangyang Li, Johns Hopkins University

"The main strength of this book is that it is written by industrial engineering professors that understand how to present important data management concepts to engineers that may not have a computer science background. Most books on data management and information systems are written with the computing professional in mind. This book finally gives engineers an understandable approach to learning the fundamental data management concepts that are relevant to engineering applications."
—Susan D Urban, Texas Tech University

"The book is provides a comprehensive introduction to the concepts of information systems. Furthermore, this book has struck the right balance of having sufficient business case concepts for implementing information systems as well as including important technical theories on designing databases."
—Eugene Rex L. Jalao, Ph.D., University of the Philippines Diliman

"… the most comprehensive book to introduce information system. … covers all the topics related to information system from theoretical background to practical applications. … organized very well and considers the diversity of the readers which will attract a huge number of audiences. … the best textbook for information system related class at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. … covers lots of complex case studies."
—Mengqi Hu, Mississippi State University
