This research explores the changing nature of the IS discipline by focusing on academic job ads over the last 18 years to, in turn, show how we are preparing our students for jobs in the IS field. Three time periods are examined to see what topics were in need for IS departments. As expected, the skills requested have changed over time, but even with a current focus on “analytics”, skills such as Data Warehousing and Systems Analysis and Design are still in demand.
