Overview

A true understanding of information systems requires more than memorizing hundreds of technical buzzwords. The third edition of Professor Steven Alter's highly successful Information Systems goes beyond the buzzwords by using a practical, widely applicable approach for analyzing systems from a business professional's viewpoint. The work-centered analysis (WCA) method is integrated throughout the book, providing a unifying vision for the material.
