This textbook is intended to meet the needs of a first course in accounting information systems at either the undergraduate or graduate level. It may also be used as a review text in second or subsequent courses in this area. A primary objective in writing the seventh edition of the text was to present AIS material that would make students more marketable in today's accounting environment. Recognizing that over 90 percent of accounting systems are licensed rather than internally custom developed and that the current market demand is for accounting graduates who can install, operate, and audit such systems, this text represents a new paradigm. In contrast to traditional accounting systems textbooks that assume an organization will develop its own accounting system and, therefore, emphasize systems development, this textbook gives students the theoretical foundation and skills they will need to conduct a requirements analysis, search for a commercial solution, and successfully implement the software package selected. In addition to learning the essential AIS concepts, you will see much discussion and many examples of commercial accounting systems software as it is designed and as it should be designed. Another objective in writing this edition was to make the material student friendly. Therefore, the authors took great care in directing their words to the students. Recognizing that this is their first introduction to accounting systems, clear definitions of terms were included and numerous examples and illustrations were incorporated to explain the material. The book consists of fifteen chapters. The first fourteen chapters provide the theoretical and practical foundation for the final chapter on selecting and implementing AIS software. The learning experience will be optimized if all fifteen chapters are covered.

Our primary goal for Information Systems Today: Managing The Digital World, 8/e, was to emphasize the importance of information systems to all business students as the role of information technology and systems continues to expand within organizations and society. Most notably, we extensively examine how five big megatrends—mobile, social media, the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and Big Data—are transforming individuals, organizations, and society. Given this clear focus, we are better able to identify those topics most critical to students and future business professionals. Consequently, we have made substantial revisions to the basic content of the chapters and pedagogical elements as well as introduced several new elements that we believe help achieve this goal. In addition to the changes within the main chapter content, we have also added two new features to each chapter—Green IT and Security Matters. Green IT presents environmental issues arising from the use of information systems. For example, in Chapter 4, we discuss the environmental impacts of online shopping. Security Matters presents some current issues and threats arising from the ubiquitous use of information systems. For example, in Chapter 5, we discuss how hacktivists challenged the extramarital dating website Ashley Madison.
