The Business Systems Development Process
A Management PerspectiveBook - 1987
Roger E. Walters has written a timely and helpful analysis of the recent boom in application software development, and he addresses the needs and concerns of executives responsible for obtaining and updating these systems. This nontechnical treatment sets out a step-by-step approach describing how non-data processing personnel can control and manage the development and installation of relevent new information systems. Using a management perspective, Walters analyzes factors including risk management, personnel shortages, computer literacy, project management, and system maintenance, all of which are critical for the success of the information system and the organization which relies on it.
