Systèmes d'Information et Management


This paper provides an overview of the development of the Information Systems (IS) discipline in German universities for French readers. First, we briefly introduce particularities of the German university system which influence the IS discipline. Then we sketch the historic development of the IS discipline in Germany and describe the discipline's actual associations and most important institutions. After deliberating prevailing research topics we give a survey of the course syllabus. Finally we briefly assess the future of the German IS discipline.
