Description & Features

Information Systems for Managers offers an introduction to information systems that 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.

Key features:

  • A “toolkit” approach offers practical guidance in an engaging, non-academic writing style
  • Mini-cases at the beginning of each chapter to jump-start conversations
  • Frameworks to help managers develop value-added strategic initiatives
  • The With Cases version includes a set of full-length cases designed for application of the frameworks and in-class discussion of the issues discussed in each chapter.
  • Instructors benefit from slide decks, test banks, access to an online community of teachers, links to videos and other interactive materials, and an instructor manual containing teaching notes for each mini-case and, for each chapter, suggestions for additional cases that are available either free online or via standard case providers.

New for Edition 4.0:

  • The text has been comprehensively updated to reflect advances in the field and provide current examples while maintaining the teaching philosophy and structure of earlier editions.
  • Coverage of big data technologies and cloud computing; discussion of data-oriented specialists, blockchain, virtual and augmented reality, machine learning, artificial intelligence, the Process Virtualization Theory, mobile security, fake news, troll factories, and cybersecurity frameworks
  • A new mini-case to initiate discussion on business models
  • Four new cases in the With Cases version address digital business, value creation, cybersecurity, and the transition from waterfall to agile software development methodologies.
