Description of "Business Information Systems, 2nd revised edition"

Business Information Systems is short, crisp book that introduces business managers to the key elements of information technology through a dialogue between an expert and a novice – in the Upanishadic traditions of India :-)

It will lead the reader through the technology issues and management processes that are crucial for the successful deployment of information systems. Cutting out abstract, theoretical topics, the book focusses on what is minimally sufficient for a practising manager and yet goes deep enough to take the reader about to the point where he or she can actually create and deploy web based applications without the help of professional programmers.

For the cross-over community young line managers and would-be managers studying in B-Schools, this book will provide a robust answer to the perennial question : “I am not a programmer – and have no intention of being one, so why do I need to learn all this technology ?”
