Prospect Press Recent and Forthcoming Textbooks

Beth Golub
Prospect Press

In this session, Prospect Press President & Editor, Beth Lang Golub, will present the range of Prospect Press textbooks curated to serve the IS curriculum. There will be an opportunity to ask questions about our textbooks and discuss ideas for new books that you feel are needed for the field. Lately, Prospect Press has been developing books for business analytics courses especially those offered in conjunction with the IS curriculum.

Two books released this summer are of particular note: Spurrier & Topis SA&D in an Age of Options identifies how to intelligently incorporate plan-driven and agile approaches to any particular project. Jukics Database Systems: Introduction to Databases & Data Warehouses, Ed 2.0 teaches what students need to know about transactional databases and then carefully presents data warehouses, anticipating needs for IS to interface with data analytics goals. Two important books are forthcoming for this fall: Asllanis Big Data Technologies for Business presents Hadoop and beyond in an accessible format. Agrawals Business Data Communications & IT Infrastructures, Ed 3.0 includes a new virtual lab which both anticipates online courses and prepares students for virtualization.
