Most students, regardless of their major, need to understand information systems and technologies and their importance to the success of business organizations. While many of today's students have lived with technology their whole lives, they do not see the connection between what they use every day and what they need to understand to be successful in the business world. Introduction to Business Information Systems, Third Canadian Edition by James Norrie, Michelle Nanjad, and Mark Huber focuses on IT as a source of business value and outlines the innovative technologies, as well as the innovative ways to use technology, that help businesses excel. The goal of this book is to teach students that the effective integration of IS with knowledge can drive the creation of significant business value. Introduction to Business Information Systems is written for both the IT and non-IT major. It is written in a friendly, accessible style that will draw students in and engage them with the content. Expanded coverage of highly technical concepts is included in the Technology Core box found in each chapter as well as the Tech Guides.
