"Integral IS: The Embedding of Information Systems in Business, Government and Society"

Information Systems (IS) as an integral part of society. Integral is defined as: “belonging as an apart of the whole; necessary or the completeness of the whole; or as important, vital, central, essential.” Integral IS means information and technology seamlessly integrated into our social and working lives. As IS researchers and practitioners, we create, design, implement and maintain the systems that play an increasingly important, almost inescapable, role in our lives today. The implementation and effects of seamless integration on such a large scale raises a number of very important issues for practice and research: issues that the Information Systems community should be taking the lead to explore and explain to the wider community.
