4 Preface The research on IS outsourcing has evolved rapidly over the past decade. Outsourcing has emerged as a key topic for both IS practitioners and academics. Whilst academics may have lagged behind their practitioner brethren in recognizing its importance in the beginning, they have begun to catch up. By our quick count, there are over 90 academic papers that have been published on IS outsourcing since 1992, along with numerous doctoral dissertations. Moreover, there has been virtually no major IS conference without a substantial outsourcing track. Thus, we felt the time was right to arrange a compilation of contemporary outsourcing research as a common platform for mutual interaction and scientific discourse. This book brings together key researchers who had published or were currently working on academic publications or dissertations in IS outsourcing. In this realm it is dedicated towards both researchers and practitioners. It is the result of thoughtfully selected contributions from leading researchers who came together for the Second International Conference on Outsourcing of Information Services (ICOIS'2001) held in Bayreuth, Germany during June 22-23rd, Their papers form the basis of this edited volume entitled Information Systems Outsourcing in the New Economy: Enduring Themes, Emergent Patterns and Future Direction. We hope you enjoy the resulting product. Rudy Hirschheim Houston, Texas Armin Heinzl Bayreuth, Germany Jens Dibbern Bayreuth, Germany
