The goal of Introduction to Information Systems is to teach undergraduate business majors how to use information technology to master their current or future jobs. To accomplish this goal, this text helps you become an informed user; that is, someone knowledgeable about information systems and information technology. The content concentrates on placing information systems in the context of business, so that you will more-readily grasp the concepts presented in the text. Students develop a working understanding of information systems and information technology and learn how to apply concepts to successfully facilitate business processes. This product demonstrates that IT is a key component of any business, whether a student is majoring in Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, or Production/Operations Management.

New additions to the seventh edition include: a new section on the growing and dynamic area of Data Analytics has been added to the course, a more in-depth look at the subject of security to address the latest trends and concerns in the field, and case studies have been added for each section to ensure you gain a greater understanding of the different subjects available.


  • IT’s About Business: Several “IT’s About Business” cases are included in each section of the course and feature vivid examples from large corporations, small businesses, government, and not-for-profit organizations to show the connection between IT and business.
  • Technology Guides: These guides offer additional material on technology topics not included in the main curriculum, as well as current hot topics in IT. New and updated information on Cloud Computing and Artificial Intelligence are covered in the Tech Guides. There is also more detailed information on computer hierarchy, the CPU, Systems Software and Applications Software.
  • Concise and Engaging: The narrative throughout each course section provides the important facts that students need to know for concept comprehension without overwhelming them with details.
