This book is intended for use in a one-semester course in accounting information systems at either the undergraduate or graduate level. Introductory financial and managerial accounting courses are suggested prerequisites, and an introductory information systems that covers a computer language or software package is helpful, but not necessary.
The book can also be used as the main text in graduate or advanced undergraduate management information systems courses.
The topics covered in this text provide information systems students with a solid understanding of transaction processing systems that they can then build on as they pursue more in-depth study of specific topics such as databases, data warehouses and data mining, networks, system analysis and design, cloud computing, virtualization, computer security, and information systems controls.
