Panel 1: SCORE (Success, Challenges, Opportunities, Risks, Enterprise) of Information Systems

Information Systems as a field has come a long way. We have witnessed its glory in the early dotcom era, and have also faced tremendous challenges and undergone significant transformations over the last few years. Looking forward, it is important that we collectively identify growth opportunities, create new possibilities, and try to avoid risks so as to ensure a stable and healthy development of the field and a proper identification of ourselves with the peers. This panel aims to offer valuable insights gleaned from past experiences as well as generate innovative new ideas that allow us to reach another level of excellence. Topics for discussion include who we are, what we do, where we stand and go, why IT matters, how we evolve and change for the better?
