For undergraduate and graduate systems analysis and design courses.   Modern Systems Analysis and Design uses a practical, rather than technical, approach to help students learn the methods and principles of systems development. This text covers the concepts, skills, methodologies, techniques, tools, and perspectives essential for systems analysts to successfully develop information systems.
