By: Kroenke.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New York : Mcgraw-Hill College, 1993Edition: 5th ed.Description: 516 p. ; 25 cm.ISBN: 0070358710; 9780070358713.Subject(s): Computers | Management information systems | Information TechnologyOnline resources: Amazon.com | Amazon customer reviews Summary: Retaining the direct, informal style of previous editions, this business oriented text emphasizes productivity by simulating business examples and scenarios, and unlike other introductory computer books which are "term-definition texts", "Business Information Systems" offers balanced coverage of concepts and how to increase productivity. The author pioneered the five component model of a computer system to consider people, data, and procedures in addition to the traditional coverage of hardware and software. It is widely copied by other authors, but only Kroenke integrates all five components throughout the entire text. In this new edition the early chapters have less hardware coverage and earlier coverage of software applications so students can move easily into hands-on lab activities. Problem-solving projects in the instructor's manual focus on computer concepts and can be solved using any software application programme. The text is designed for an introductory computer information systems course or an introductory computers course. Special features include: increased coverage of computer viruses, downsizing and ethics; prototyping; international issues; multimedia; connectivity; Windows; object-oriented concepts; and CASE (computer assisted software engineering). Also available is an instructor's manual (0-07-035872-9), a test bank (0-07-035911-3), and OTMs (0-07-07489-7).
