Students are provided with vocabulary they will need to succeed in the profession and ensuring that they can communicate clearly and effectively about accounting information systems with both accountants and nonaccountants.The text end-of-chapter exercises and assessment tools are all competency-based, distilling knowledge to its essential elements and then encouraging students to use those essential elements to think for themselves.

ISBN: 0071111204
Release Date: 2005-01-01
Genre: Information storage and retrieval systems

Enterprise Information Systems: A Pattern Based Approach, 3e,by Dunn/Cherrington/Hollander presents a pattern-based approach to designing enterprise information systems with a particular emphasis on the enterprise-wide database. This edition is built on the idea that a separation between accounting information systems and management information systems should not exist. We believe patterns help people see the “big picture†of enterprises more clearly and therefore help design better systems. We believe you cannot identify anything that we need to account for that we do not also need to manage; nor can we identify anything we need to manage that we do not also need to account for. In this edition, we will show how a well-designed REA-based Accounting Information System is the Enterprise Information System.
