Unlike any other MIS text, Business Driven Technology, 9e,discusses various business initiatives first and how technology supports those initiatives second. The premise for this unique approach is that business initiatives should drive technology choices. Every discussion in the text first addresses the business needs and then addresses the technology that supports those needs. Business Driven Technology offers you the flexibility to customize courses according to your needs and the needs of your students by covering only essential concepts and topics in the five core units, while providing additional in-depth coverage in the business and technology plug-ins. Business Driven Technology contains 18 chapters (organized into five units), 10 business plug-ins, and 11 technology plug-ins offering you the ultimate flexibility in tailoring content to the exact needs of your MIS course. The unique construction of this text allows you to cover essential concepts and topics in the five core units while providing you with the ability to customize a course and explore certain topics in greater detail with the business and technology plug-ins.
