BUS 415 - Management Information Systems
Vocabulary is a key to searching. Use references, textbooks or ask your professor if you don't know the terms to search for. Try to search combinations of terms like: "Knowledge base" and "information systems" and business. Or try new concept terms like "Cloud computing". Remember a word may be written as one word or two: data base or database
Reference resources may help you find terms, different disciplines may have different terms for the same topic.
