Introduction to Business Information Systems (Custom Edition eBook)

I am a stickler for accuracy, but I found just a few errors - fewer than in most textbooks. One small error will be discovered by students in Figure 4.

But other than that, and a few typos, I am impressed with the writing, editing, and overall attention to the subject.

Published in , it is now 8 years old, and it seems quite up-to-date. Yes, some of the references may seem outdated, but Campbell has written the book in such a way that the essentials are not hidden by a fascination with rapidly shifting technology.

For example, the data structures and the computer languages being used in relation to GIS now are mostly the same or simply derivative of those the author describes.

It would be impossible to keep up with all the computer language options in this kind of text - any professor will have to supplement the text with updates on that. This is not a flaw in Campbell's book. The same is true for examples. Campbell tries to avoid using examples that would be easily outdated.

Clarity rating: 4 The writing is clear and easy to follow. I think students should have no trouble reading and even being fascinated by the field as presented here. I do think three improvements could be made: A.

Many of the diagrams could be better designed. I find quite a few of them to be overly simplistic, to the point where the reality being modeled is too hard to imagine.

More examples from the real world should be included, particularly when talking about the most difficult subjects, such as data structures and project management. Students will easily follow the examples already shown, but in some sections, the author seems to have forgotten to maintain his good style.

Consistency rating: 5 The book is consistent in its presentation of the subject. Campbell shows he is a good writer and organizer.

Foreword 1

We should also credit the editor s. The quality shows.

The management of information, timely flow, and reliability and safety of information is becoming increasingly challenging and critical. The growing globalization and interdependence between nations and societies are entirely relying on information technology that makes reliability and safety of information sharing even more critical.

The chapters included in this book cover majority of these issues and concerns. Specifically, software reliability, reliability optimization in intuitionistic fuzzy environment, mathematical models for digital imaging and their applications in digital image forensics, quality issues dealing with information flow in supply chain system, safety and security in IT based technology, food safety and security, fault-detection and correction in complex network system are some of the important topics covered in the book, which attempt to address some of the major concerns and challenges being faced my information systems.

This book has compiled and edited work of several researchers who have been working hard to anticipate upcoming issue and develop appropriate tools and technologies to address these issues up-front.

I congratulate editors for this timely effort to compile the work on the most challenging area. All approaches to scientific observation and experiment, theory are needed to understand the complex phenomena investigated by scientists and engineers and each approach requires the mathematical sciences.

The real world utility of mathematics remarkably significance in the life of academics, practitioners, researchers and industry leaders. In recent years mathematics applied in information system considers only original and timely contribution containing new results in various fields of applied mathematics.

Advance in science and technology, however, brought about a further development of mathematical applications.This book Mathematics Applied in Information Systemconfronts various series of range in mathematics applied to information systems. Learn more about reviews. For example, the data structures and the computer languages being used in relation to GIS now are mostly the same or simply derivative of those the author describes.

The book is indeed painstakingly compiled covering a diverse range of topics in mathematical applications in information systems to include software reliability growth models, reliability optimization in intuitionistic fuzzy environment, applications ranging from railways to retrieval of soil parameters, mathematical models for digital imaging and their applications in digital image forensics, quality issues in the design of supply chains, food safety and security, propositional logic and application of stochastic differential equation to software release modeling.

This is impressive. Campbell shows he is a good writer and organizer.

I fancy reading books knavishly. Feel free to read my other posts. I absolutely love kite.
