For undergraduate courses in Management Information Systems

Why is MIS the most important course in the business school, and MIS Essentials the most important book in your students’ backpack?

Together, they show students exactly how businesses use information systems and technology to accomplish their goals, objectives, and competitive strategy. Knowing this helps students get ahead of the IS curve, which in turn, will keep them ahead of the growing list of obsolete jobs. MyMISLab further prepares students for the rigors of the workplace through additional study material, quizzing, and testing, and also engages students in real business situations through simulations.

The Third Edition focuses on the latest innovation in MIS and addresses today’s changing student experience through new Guides and new GearUp and PRIDE cases, based on real businesses and business opportunities.


Features

 

MyMISLab: Break through to engaging experiences.

MyMISLab engages students in real business situations through simulations, and improves student’s course results with additional study materials, quizzing, and testing.

NEW! Chapter Opening Cases: New cases in the Third Edition demonstrate how information is relevant in the real world and include:
  • GearUp (Chapters 1-6), a fictional start-up selling discontinued sporting goods and last year’s seasonal items at rock-bottom prices, but facing operational issues.
  • PRIDE (Chapters 7-12), a Performance Recording, Integration, Delivery, and Evaluation system, that uses cloud technology and a wide array of mobile devices to integrate patient exercise data with health care providers, health clubs, insurance agencies, and employers.

NEW! MIS InClass Exercises: Four new exercises — on topics such as Google Mobility, Microsoft Surface, and Apple — pique interest and connect to the real world.

NEW! Chapter Ending Cases: Eleven of twelve new cases focus on current topics, including Amazon, Apple, and NoSQL.

NEW! Collaboration Extensions: Two Collaboration Extensions have been re-written to include a discussion of Office 365, as well as questions for students to use to evaluate and choose their own collaboration information system.

NEW! Updated content and coverage: Major discussions of cloud technology, mobile applications, and social media information systems update almost all of the chapters, making them timely and impactful.Also included are:

  • New discussions in Chapter 2 of business process and the ways that information systems can improve process quality.
  • Sections featuring BigData and Hadoop in Chapters 5 and 9.

Guides: Three Guides per chapter – one each on ethics, security, and timely topics – foster thought, discussion, and active participation by concentrating on current issues in information systems. These amplify the chapter’s core material and help students strengthen their problem-solving skills to become better business professionals.

Chapter-Opening Cases: Chapter-Opening Cases introduce each chapter and get students thinking about business applications from the start.

MIS InClass: MIS InClass – a feature in each chapter that contains exercises, projects, and questions – helps students connect classroom knowledge to everyday life, while encouraging group work and active participation.

Chapter-Ending Cases: Chapter-Ending Cases – all less than one year old – allow students to think about the information in the chapter as it relates to a real business.

Collaboration Exercises: Collaboration Exercises foster teamwork outside of the classroom by enabling students to work on projects collectively, via collaboration software such as SharePoint through MyMISLab.

Office Application Exercises: Office Application Exercises, 27 in all, allow students to complete business application assignments in Excel or Access.

Modular Approach: A modular approach offers instructors flexibility in covering the material they want, in the order they prefer. Twelve short chapters cover the basic material, while 21 chapter extensions delve deeper into specific topics – if the instructor chooses to do so.

AIE: A fully annotated instructor’s edition gives professors helpful hints and tips for creating a more engaging classroom.
