Built on the successful framework of previous editions, the eagerly anticipated eighth edition of Principles of Information Systems has been heavily revised and reorganized and now offers a streamlined text that covers the most up-to-date and relevant topics of information technology. The overall vision, framework, and pedagogy that made the previous editions so popular has been retained, making this a highly comprehensive IS text.
