Information Systems: Transforming the future
Information systems is a discipline that is built on the foundations of other disciplines bringing together information technology, management, business, sociology, cognitive science and a host of elements from elsewhere. This gives it the breadth of knowledge and capabilities to place it on the leading edge of the many transformations of the future that the 21stcentury has already started to see. Three areas in which these transformations will be are:
Despite change in the business world driven by information technology since the 60s, business will be transformed dramatically over the next generation and information systems is strategically placed to be a leader in that transformation.
Information systems academics have been leading the way in the use of the Web and social media for the last 20 years and with the advent of the MOOC we can continue to be at the forefront of using systems in tertiary education.
Transforming the Discipline
We are not immune to the need to transform our future, the discipline needs to adopt the processes and pace of social media and move to be on Internet Time as opposed to traditional scholarly time.
