The challenge of structuring Business Informatics as an academic discipline

Stanisław Wrycza


The aim of this paper is to propose the structure of Business Informatics (BI) as an academic field. This target has been achieved by proposing that the BI knowledge structure (Fig. 1) is useful for the academic community of Management Information Systems (MIS) at large. This paradigm is considered and analysed in the wider environment of the BI ecosphere, where the interrelations between BI theory/knowledge, research, education and applications (Fig. 2) are included. Hopefully, this article will stimulate the academic interest of scholars and practitioners and enable discussions of the structure and content of the proposed original model.
