Business information systems and business information technology are integral aspects of modern business, and managers in these areas are now expected to have knowledge of human and managerial issues, as well as technical ones.

This concise and readable book is a level-by-level primer that addresses the core subjects in business information systems and business information technology to enhance students’ understanding of the key areas. Each chapter begins with a case study and features at the end: a summary of major points, glossary of terms, suggested further reading and student activities. Some areas covered include:

Different functional areas of business, including accounting, HRM and marketing

Development and implementation of information systems

Methods to support the analysis and design of policy and practice

Strategic management to align information technology with organizational needs

Covering the subject matter in a highly accessible manner, this is an ideal text for both undergraduate and masters students on business information systems, business information technology and business information management courses.

This text is supplemented with over 900 detailed powerpoint slides for instructors, accessible via the Routledge Instructor Resource page at
