SIGITE/RIIT 2012 » ACM Conference on IT Education/Research » Panel: Defining IT Research

Panel: Defining IT Research

  • Information Technology emerged as a separate computing discipline primarily because the computing disciplines that were taught in universities at the time, in particular computer science and information systems, did not meet the needs of employers. In particular, the existing computing disciplines did not meet employer needs for IT infrastructure managers. While IT was successful in meeting employer needs, it was slow to develop a distinct research agenda, and it has become clear that, if it is to gain credibility in an academic environment, it needs to do so.
