This is a complete and readable introduction to the nature and impact of the new information and communication technologies on business and society. Without assuming any prior knowledge of either business or information technology, it provides a unique and accessible guide on the nature and uses of business information systems.

The book focuses upon the use of information systems in organizations of all kinds - including manufacturing, services, the public sector and not-for-profit organizations - and the way this is constrained by the wider society within which such organizations operate. Applying a systems thinking approach, the book covers the following topics: *the environment of computing *the IT industry, government and the information economy - and the recent development of egovernment initiatives *the need to regulate computing *the role of IT in the workplace: its effect on organizations and jobs *the impact of IT on society at large. Written for those students studying business, as well as for IT students, Business, Information Technology and Society is an invaluable resource offering highly topical insights into the ways in which information technolgy is shaping our work and our lives, in organizations and in society as a whole.
