Un libro de estudio muy aburrido y cajonero cuya intención es dejar claro cómo utilizar la tecnología y los sistemas de información como un medio para producir más dinero en una empresa. Repite toda la teoría clásica de los sistemas de información, aunque actualmente sea poco útil aplicarla. Tiene bastantes casos y ejemplos de la vida real, aunque casi siempre son de empresas transnacionales demasiado grandes y con mucho dinero. Esto se aleja de la realidad de los administradores de empresas que ...more

It was a fairly decent textbook for a topic I knew really not much about before taking my MIS class. The writing style was engaging. But I did find the review questions and the case study questions to be fairly elementary for a master's class. They actually reminded me a lot of sixth-grade level questions. But, the case studies were interesting and practical, and it was interesting to see definitions and examples for things we use or do every day but don't think about.

Adding another textbook because this one I actually read through properly and while it was for my study and some would argue it doesn't count, I truly think it does in this case because I read all of it.
It was rather easy to read, in some places probably a bit wordy and dragged on, and made reference to a couple of things I felt were irrelevant now like old Mac operating systems and MS-DOS. I think it could have mentioned obsolete things such as these and perhaps not spent so much time on them.

If you know nothing of information systems, this book can provide a decently solid foundation on which to build intellectual comprehension. I find that many textbooks suffer from ridiculous amount of clip art. Mostly generic images and the cliche 'one of every colour' business employees pretending to do some important board meeting. This book has cut back on such trivialities and only diagrams of actual merit.

I honestly didn't like this so much, mainly because I don't like MIS that much. The book was informative, but some information could have been said in a few paragraphs which annoyed me

Sorry Goodreads things aren't going to be like they used to be. Its been great, but there's someone else in my life now. No, its not you, its me. We sure had some real good times together. Maybe I'll see you around...

This is my textbook for my upcoming summer class. This is also the reason I haven't finished Myths America Lives By yet.

Not a bad intro to the topic, but, as often happens with textbooks, I can't imagine reading it without it being required for class.
