NEW! Provide the latest in systems analysis and design:
- Agile Methodology. Systems development is moving away from complex, plan-driven development to a new approach, Agile Methodology. The Agile revolution in systems development is acknowledged and briefly explained in Chapter 1 and then explored in much greater depth in Appendix B.
- Increased Focus on Make versus Buy and Systems Integration. Since more systems development involves the use of packages in combination with legacy applications and new modules, the coverage of this topic has been moved forward in the text to highlight the importance of these topics. Chapter 2 shows how companies deal with these issues.
See the concepts in action: Three Illustrative Fictional Cases.
- Pine Valley Furniture (PVF). This case is introduced in Chapter 3 and revisited throughout the book. As key systems development life cycle concepts are presented, they’re applied and illustrated.
- Hoosier Burger (HB). This second illustrative case is introduced in Chapter 6 and revisited throughout the book. Hoosier Burger is a fictional fast-food restaurant in Bloomington, Indiana. This case illustrates how analysts would develop and implement an automated food ordering system. A margin icon identifies the location of these case segments. A case problem related to HB is included in the end-of-chapter material.
- NEW! Petrie’s Electronics. This fictional electronics retailer is used as an extended case at the end of each chapter, beginning with Chapter 2. Designed to bring the chapter concepts to life, this case illustrates how a company initiates, plans, models, designs, and implements a Web-based customer loyalty program. Discussion questions are included to promote critical thinking and class participation. Suggested solutions to the discussion questions are provided in the Instructor’s Manual.
