Information systems often fail because their requirements are poorly defined. This book shows IT professionals how to specify more precisely and more effectively what their systems need to do. The key lies in the discovery and application of what are called business rules. A business rule is a compact and simple statement that represents some important aspect of a business.

In this book, Tony Morgan provides a thorough introduction to business rules, as well as a practical framework for integrating them into information systems. He shows you how to identify and express business rules, offers practical strategies for their use, and explains the key elements of logic that underpin their application. Topics covered include: Understanding the role of business rules and models in information systems development Using models to structure and manage business activities, including e-commerce Defining and discovering business rules Controlling business rule quality Fitting business rules into varied technical architectures Implementing business rules using available technology Whether you are an analyst, designer, developer, or technical manager, the in-depth information and practical perspective in this valuable resource will guide you in your efforts to build rule-centered information systems that fully support the goals of your organization.

This book gives a theoretical base and a perspective for the analysis, design, and operation of information systems, particularly their information storage and retrieval (ISAR) component, whether mechanized or manual. Information systems deal with many types of entities: events, persons, documents, business transactions, museum objects, research projects, and technical parts, to name a few. Among the purposes the serve are to inform the public, to support managers, researchers, and engineers, and to provide a knowledge base for an artificial intelligence program. The principles discussed in this book apply to all these contexts. The book achieves this generality by drawing on ideas from two conceptually overlapping areas--data base management and the organization and use of knowledge in libraries--and by integrating these ideas into a coherent framework. The principles discussed apply to the design of new systems and, more importantly, to the analysis of existing systems in order to exploit their capabilities better, to circumvent their shortcomings, and to introduce modifications where feasible.

That's why students need to understand both the technical implementation of security controls, as well as the softer human behavioral and managerial factors that contribute to the theft and sabotage of proprietary data. Addressing both the technical and human side of information systems security, Dhillon's "Principles of Information Systems Security" helps future managers understand the broad range of technical, managerial, ethical, and legal issues related to IS security, and equips them with specific tools and techniques to support effective IS security management. Key Features Balanced coverage addresses the social and technical nature of IS security. Takes a managerial orientation, presenting key security challenges that information technology managers commonly face. Provides an analytical framework to conceptualize IS security problems. Draws on a range of disciplines, such as computer science, sociology, law, anthropology, and behavioral science. Cases put the theoretical material in real-life context.

He is the Editor-in-Chief of the "Journal of Information System Security," is the North American Regional Editor of the "International Journal of Information Management, " and sits on the editorial board of "MISQ Executive."
