Overview

Information Technology and Management, Second Edition by Thompson and Cats-Baril is not just an introduction to information technology; rather, it is an introduction to business processes and the information systems that can make these processes more effective. The book covers the traditional topics of information technology, information system components, and information system development. But it goes beyond this traditional coverage, showing how businesses function and how information systems enable businesses to function more effectively. The theme of IT and organizational responsiveness has been retained, but now centers on the context of how an information system can impact the competitiveness of an organization.
