Information Systems in Israel: A Study Visit to Six Universities
Karlstad University, Faculty of Economic Sciences, Communication and IT, Department of Information Systems and Project Management. (Informatik)
2008 (English)Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Abstract [en]

Sometimes we hear that Israel is one of the countries in the front-line when utilizing Information Technology (IT) for better support of existing business processes as well as to enable new and innovative business concepts in organisations. We have still a rather limited knowledge here in Sweden about the Israelian way for working with the academic disci­pline of Information Systems on a university level.

This was my background for making a study visit to Israel during three months from the beginning of November 2007 until the end of January 2008. It was accomplished as foreign academic services with a short-term sabbatical leave from my employer Karlstad University in Sweden.

The main purpose of the visit to Israel was to investigate research and education in the subject Information Systems (IS) and the connection to the faculties they belong to at the six traditional universities in Israel:

Bar-Ilan University (BIU), in Tel-Aviv

Ben Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), in Beer-Sheva

The University of Haifa

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, in Haifa

Tel-Aviv University (TAU)

This report is organised in the following way. The first section is about Information Systems (IS) as an academic discipline. We try to do a program declaration for the IS discipline and argue that Information Systems should be regarded as a relationship subject. The second section is about the Information Systems disci­pline at each of the six universities in Israel. We make brief descriptions of education, research and outside cooperation at the various IS institutions. The third section is about some lessons learned from the site visits to the six universities in Israel. We highlight valuable experiences when com­paring the IS discipline between Israel and Sweden.
