Summary

Intended primarily toward undergraduate and graduate systems analysis and design courses, this text also provides practical content to current and aspiring industry professionals.

 
Modern Systems Analysis and Design uses a practical, rather than technical, approach to help students learn the methods and principles of systems development. This text covers the concepts, skills, methodologies, techniques, tools, and perspectives essential for systems analysts to successfully develop information systems.
 

Teaching and Learning Experience
This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience—for you and your students. It provides:

  • Fully Engaged Students : Three fictional cases illustrate connections.
  • A Clear Understanding of Systems Development: The authors use the systems development life cycle (SDLC) model as an organizing tool throughout the text.
  • Better Critical Thinking: A traditional, linear approach to teaching systems analysis and design.
