Overview


This introduction to information systems focuses on what students need to know to be effective managers in the modern firm. Building from a discussion of fundamental concepts, Piccoli and Pigni use a practical and applied approach, not only to demonstrate the strategic importance of IS, but also to impart methods for creating and maintaining value. Far more than a summary of IS topics, the book empowers readers to realize the transformative business potential of IT.
