PostSubject: Information Technology For Management   Tue Aug 05, 2008 11:49 am

Efraim Turban, Ephraim McLean, James Wetherbe

* A practical, managerial-oriented approach that shows how IT is used in organizations to improve quality and productivity
* Case studies highlight new technology and applications, including fuzzy logic, neural computing, and hypermedia
* Contains a variety of cases that emphasize problems many corporations encounter
* Features international cases, illustrating how IT can be adapted to other cultures

Text focuses on how organizations operate and compete in the digital economy, and how IT can assist this transformation. Includes the latest coverage on technology, and a new chapter on wireless technology. For undergraduate students. Includes index, glossary, references, and chapter exercises. Previous edition: c2001. DLC: Management information systems.

My Best Choice!! This is one of the best (if not the best) book in this field, comprehensive, up-to-date, and to lay down the concrete and profound managerial framework in IT management (contrast to those books so abstruct or general for nothing to gain, or too IT technical to be so narrow or specific in its scope or to be obsolete in a few years). The strength of this book is the authors themselves who really understand (in theory and practice) both IT and Management fields, and to be able to integrate these two vast fields togather. I have used this book for my MBA MIS course that I have been teaching, and I recommend to read from cover to cover. I think that this book is a bargain!!

Book Doesn't Connect. Information Technology for Management, while a nice paperweight, provides little more than an illustrated dictionary of IT related terms. Its chapters feature lengthy and overly verbose descriptions of fairly basic terms, and far too many case studies and examples. Of course, such examples are important, however the present work tends to rely upon third-party analyses of IT/IS installations, making one wonder whether Turban, McLean, and Wetherbe are in fact authors, or merely just librarians compiling information for this seemingly derivative work.
Moreover, the text includes a significant number of charts and diagrams, many of which are provided with little explaination and often serve to confuse, rather than to clarify specific points. Those wishing to learn more about information technology as well as professors considering adopting this text, would be strongly urged to consider some of the many other, perhaps more appropriate, texts available in the rapidly growing field of information technology for management.

Review: Good for MIS. In the MIS department of a multinational company, the survival skills are not thorough knowledge of VB, ASP, PowerBuilder or JCL, but the overall understanding of company's huge system. You don't do coding step by step by ask for outsourcing. This book shows the computer system blueprints of big corporations. When you bosses ask you about what's the future of company Intranet, you better be able to give him/her a satisfactory answer in terms of company's overall profit/loss.
But if you want to be a creative professional, this book might let you down. Chapter 3 Caterpillar's case study is back to 1993. This book emphasizes too many advantages from IT and ignores many hazards. The EDI case study seems too good to be real. EDI is good, even though Internet is prevailing. But before the system can function properly, many people will suffer from system implementation, such as data missing, counterpart's delay and so on. Even if a field missing on EDI can cause your system stop operation. Besides, I believe most of the corporations in this world already had EDI linkage by 98. Probably it's too late to mention EDI at Y2K. But for a university student who has never heard EDI and other IT things, this book is worth reading.

Review: TO BURN! I hate it and so does everyone else who has read it. The authors are smart but they wrote the book for bung-junkies who smoke doobies and don't care about information tec
