Frameworks for Developing Efficient Information Systems

Book Description

As advances in technology continue to generate the collective knowledge of an organization and its operations, strategic models for information systems are developed in order to arrange business processes and business data. Frameworks for Developing Efficient Information Systems: Models, Theory, and Practice presents research and practices on the advancements in systems analysis and design. These theoretical frameworks and practical solutions are useful for researchers, practitioners, and academicians as this book aims to bridge the communication gap between business managers and system designers.
