Today IS/IT no longer is simply used to support the business, but rather radically transform the very basis for competition. An understanding of existing and emerging information technologies, the functions of IS/IT and its impact on the organizational operations, and the issues and challenges associated with successfully incorporating IS/IT into a firm is a critical aspect of the knowledge base of managers.
