I read this book as part of my Informatics Masters degree. I think it is the best around on informatics simply because it explains thoroughly organisational behaviour and relationships from an IT point of view.

Paul Beynon-Davies describes the use, modelling, architecture and impact of Information Systems (IS), the development process of IS, organisational culture and strategy, the informatics infrastructure, e-Business including all its constituents e.g. B2C, B2B, etc. and finally a good account on Knowledge Management is provided.

The book is very well organised, with clear and concise diagrams explaining all the theory behind the above mentioned areas.

I highly recommend it to undergraduate/postgraduate students in IT related courses, academics in IT/Management/Economics departments and IT professionals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Used as student litterature 27 July 2009
I have read most chaptures of the book since it was one of the main books in the first course of informatic that I took at the University.
The book has an easy language, a good disposition and each chapture ends with a summary, questions, excercises and project. Thanks to that it is easy to know that you acctually have understood and that you remember what you read.
I would like to recommend the book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful computer science textbook 29 Mar 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good book on information systems as it has in depth coverage of the topic that is relevant to today. Information systems are vitally important to how the world works today so this topic should not taken lightly but it can be taught in uninteresting ways.
