Abstract

This panel reexamines the perennial debate on the relevance of IS from the point of view of the value of IS research, who benefits from it and how these benefits are realized. Following up on previous panels, it promotes a discussion on the kinds of knowledge the IS community produces, the visibility of the IS research, its contributions and what could or should the IS community be working on in the future. Four panelists, who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in their respective careers, weigh in and respond to questions on who benefits from their research, what they view as grand challenges that the IS community has addressed, and how as a research community, we can create value. Their discussions on these critical issues are expected to inspire the IS community towards addressing impactful issues that matter to society.
