    Salient Features

    • The fifth edition emphasizes current changes in systems analysis and design. 
    • Offer a clear presentation of material: The Systems Development Life Cycle Model. Organized around the systems development life cycle—at the chapter and book level—this text provides students with a comprehensive format to follow:
    • NEW! Provide the latest in systems analysis and design:
    • Agile Methodology. Systems development is moving away from complex, plan-driven development to a new approach, Agile Methodology. The Agile revolution in systems development is acknowledged and briefly explained in Chapter 1 and then explored in much greater depth in Appendix B.
    • Increased Focus on Make versus Buy and Systems Integration. Since more systems development involves the use of packages in combination with legacy applications and new modules, the coverage of this topic has been moved forward in the text to highlight the importance of these topics.
