Summary

The #1 market leader is appropriate for MBA and undergraduate level courses in accounting information systems. The 8/e is extensively rewritten (almost 100 pages shorter) and includes a new two-color design. There is increased coverage of business strategy so that students can immediately begin to think about how information technology may be used to help organizations achieve their goals and improved coverage of databases and data modeling, including the use of Microsoft ACCESS to illustrate the concepts. There is enhanced coverage of e-commerce, including the topics of FEDI and control issues and a continued focus on transaction cycles from a business process perspective, including many new techniques that perpetrators are using to defraud companies, and an improved presentation of the systems development/acquisition process. Includes a CW web site with resources to support faculty and students.
