Book descriptionInformation systems are a critical component of business success today. Unfortunately, many companies do not truly understand what an information system is; where, when, and how it should be implemented; or the effects of integrating it into the organization. As such, we continue to see implementation horror stories of projects run amuck- going over time and over budget-or information systems that never get fully implemented, requiring Òwork-aroundÓ by employees in order to get things done. Sound familiar? Written especially for C-suite decision makers, this book provides details on how information systems work, and, most importantly, what constitutes successful information systems-ones that work better and last longer. With this understanding, you'll be able to design, build, and implement information systems that maximize the profitability of the company.
