This paper raises questions for the IS community that contribute to the ongoing debate of defining the core properties and unique identity of the information systems field. The international business (IB) discipline encountered similar problems in its journey to establish its own unique identity. The paper investigates the ongoing debate and solutions for the IB discipline to obtain insights and lessons learned that may be helpful to IS academicians as we continue the same debate for the IS field.
