In today's fast-paced and highly connected world, information systems have become an integral part of everyday life. Advances in information systems are transforming the way we work, live, and play at an unprecedented rate. Technologically, information systems are enabled by core software, database, and networking technologies, as well as a continuous stream of new capabilities in cloud and social computing, mobile and sensor networks, big data and advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, and more.
The MIT Press book series on Information Systems focuses on the conception, analysis, design, development, and evaluation of information systems. The series emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of the field, as technical system design and evolution is shaped increasingly by sociocultural forces as well as business models and strategies. The series, founded as the Cooperative Information Systems series in 1992, publishes the highest quality monographs, handbooks, and carefully edited collections from leading thinkers and researchers in information systems.
