Business information systems is the discipline which investigates, categorizes and evaluates methods to systematically develop and deploy information sys tems in companies and organizations. Its importance increases in the evolving information society. Many areas of modem life and work are supported by the deployment of information systems. Thus the necessity arises to convey essential features of business information systems to readers in educational settings at various levels. This book is to support such learning efforts. In contrast to most other introductory books, the presentation is consis tently oriented towards integrated application systems. Subject matters such as the technology of computers, programming, as well as data storage are emphasized a little less in their relative importance, especially since the au thors set themselves a strict page limit. The authors assume basic knowledge on the student's side in the area of computers and computer networks gained from the university's PC laboratory or from private PC usage at home. Initially essential basic knowledge about hardware and software is provided. Starting with the PC, the features and characteristics of other computer classes are developed and the fundamentals of networks, especially the Internet, are presented. As students progress in their business studies, the present textbook shows how processes in firms are supported by information systems. It provides concepts that are used in mod em application systems. Moreover, the integrated perspective of these appli cations advances the thinking, conceptualization and imagination underlying operational processes.Laudon, K. C. and Laudon, J.
