A practical and modern approach to systems analysis and design

Kendall and Kendall’s Systems Analysis and Design, Global Edition, 10th Edition concisely presents the latest systems development methods, tools, and techniques to students in an engaging and easy-to-understand manner. The 10th Edition reflects the rapidly changing face of the IS field, with new and advanced features integrated throughout — including additional coverage of security and privacy issues, and innovative materials on new developments such as designing virtual reality and intelligent personal assistants.

Features

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

 

Helps students easily grasp and apply the subject matter

·    Design features like color-coded Conceptual Diagrams, Computer Displays with real software screenshots, Paper Forms, and Tables have a stylized look to aid students’ understanding.

·    Many pedagogical features help students apply and extend new concepts and tools to practical situations. They encourage group interactions to solve important problems, and provide an excellent source of review for exams. These features include the Learning Objectives and Summaries that accompany each chapter, Review Questions, Group Projects, HYPERCASE Experiences, and Consulting Opportunities with more than 50 mini cases.

 

Reflects rapid changes in the IS field over the past four years

·    New - The 10th Edition contains extensive new material on topics such as responsive Web design, comparing and contrasting skeuomorphic design with flat design for websites, UX design work-sanctioned social media sites, text analytics software, and the relationship of building intelligence to data warehouses, big data, and data analytics.

·    New - This book takes an innovative approach, covering important new developments in the field, including responsive design, DevOps, developing and using blockchains, listening to user stories, and designing virtual reality, augmented reality, and intelligent personal assistants.

·    Updated - This edition contains additional and expanded material on a variety of topics relevant to students, including cloud computing, designing dashboards for decision makers using infographics, and using QR codes for improved data entry.

·    New New and expanded content on agile methods has been added, including content on Scrum, Scrum planning poker, the product backlog, sprint cycle, and burndown charts.

 

Tackles security and privacy concerns

·    Updated - Reflecting recent news and concerns, this edition contains additional material on database security and risk tradeoffs in securing databases, and on designing improved cloud security, privacy, and stability, especially for business continuity and disaster recovery.

·    New - Chapter 1 contains new coverage of the importance of security considerations right from the outset of a systems project.
