Front Cover
McGraw-Hill, 1997 - Computers - 387 pages
This text is intended to address fundamental quest ions arising from the on-going debate about IS as a discipline. Information systems is a relatively new area of study having emerged over the last 20 years from domains which include computer and business systems analysis, computing and management science. As with any emerging field, there are many conflicting views about the appropriate subject matter, its boundaries and its relationship to other disciplines. The book is a result of a series of seminars organized by UK Systems Society and Warwick Univesity between 1992-1995. Each seminar had a particular theme relevant to the problems of the devloping field of IS which attracted leading figures in the IS community.
