4 out of 5 stars The Best Tome on the Topic, October 29, 2002
Reviewer: tomatopie (see more about me) from Yardley, PA
[This review applies to the 2003 updated version only]
I have been searching, mostly in vain, for a text that will be useful in examining the strategic relationship of business and IT. There were some fine books written in the eighties and early nineties, but very little wisdom has been written since the advent of the networked office and the networked economy. There's tons of e-blather out there, but most was written during the 1997-2000 Internet frenzy that distorted all perspectives. This book is the first to give thoughtful coverage to problems and solutions in the alignment of business needs and IT initiatives. It covers legacy issues, conversion and compatibility, examining typical problems, noted failures, and best-of-breed solutions. It's not full of some egghead professor's theories and paradigms that give new names to old issues; instead it covers relevant case studies to make genuine points. This is not a "how-to" manual, but it is an essential overview. Every CIO should read this, and every CEO should read this and then critically examine the CIO, the IT staff, and its relationship to the business. If you are reasonably intelligent, you don't need to be IT-trained to appreciate most of the authors' points. Recommended.

1 out of 5 stars unorganized and poor written book, September 18, 2002
Reviewer: A reader from Boston, MA
The book is poorly organized and sentences are poor written. It's way too hard to read and understand the point the authors are trying to make. A lot of run-on sentences, which creates a lot of confusion. The only good thing is the examples given in the book. The price is WAY TOO HIGH. --This text refers to the Paperback edition

4 out of 5 stars Managing I.S. is an Part Science and part Art, July 31, 2001
Reviewer: A reader from Tulsa, OK United States
The authors do a great job of addressing several issues relating to managing I.S. in a Corporate environment. Several chapters were excellent -- especially regarding the people and process sides of the I.S. world. Authors provide clear and concise information and insight. Other chapters are not as good -- for example the Electronic Commerce trends and opportunities are already dated, as they were pre-1999 examples and extremely dated in the Internet world. Book is "pricey" but worth one to add to your library.
