This paper describes the characteristics of the Computing Curricula 2020 process, discusses the reasons why it is essential for information systems to be involved, and explores the core structures of existing computing curriculum recommendations, particularly from the learning outcome and competency perspective. The two main categories are the knowledge area – knowledge unit structure used by CE, CS, and SE and the competency structure used by IT and MSIS. Finding a way to express the competency expectations of all degree program types in computing at the same level of abstraction will be a key to the success of the CC2020 project. The upcoming process to develop a new IS undergraduate recommendation will also benefit from CC2020 work and contribute to it.
