Refined and streamlined, SYSTEMS ANALYSIS AND DESIGN IN A CHANGING WORLD, 7E helps students develop the conceptual, technical, and managerial foundations for systems analysis design and implementation as well as project management principles for systems development. Using case driven techniques, the succinct 14-chapter text focuses on content that is key for success in today's systems analysis and design. The authors use a highly effective presentation to teach both traditional (structured) and object-oriented (OO) approaches to systems analysis and design. The book highlights use cases, use diagrams, and use case descriptions required for a modeling approach, while demonstrating their application to traditional, web development, object-oriented, and service-oriented architecture approaches. The Seventh Edition's refined sequence of topics makes it easier to read and understand than ever. Regrouped analysis and design chapters provide more flexibility in course organization. Enabling students to apply what they learn as they go, the text's running cases have been completely updated, and now include a stronger focus on connectivity in applications. In addition, each new copy of the text includes 60-day trial versions of Microsoft® Project 2013 Professional and Microsoft® Visio 2013, giving your students hands-on experience with powerful software like professionals use.
