Enterprise Information Infrastructure
There are many textbooks that explain Management Information Systems (MIS) and provide examples of their use in business. But MIS descriptions and examples do not communicate the economic, political, and social revolutions spawned by world-wide telecommunications, robust wide area networks, prolific and effectual hardware and software, and the incredible power of the Internet to connect everything to everything. We are witnesses to a paradigm shift in the way people live and work every bit as liberating and tumultuous as the shifts that were initiated by the invention of printing in the 15th century and the industrial revolution in the 18th century.
Enterprise Information Infrastructure positions computer information systems in the socio-economic "big picture" of modern information and communication. The text is targeted for undergraduate study (sophomore and junior level. It focuses on three primary areas:
Business transformation in the Information age Systems Approach to Business Enterprise-wide Information Systems
Enterprise Information Infrastructure integrates information systems and business practices like ERP software integrates components of the business enterprise
