Abstract

The interrelationship between Information Systems (IS), Systems Engineering (SE), and Information Systems Development (ISD) is discussed from past, present, and future perspectives. While SE is relatively a well-established discipline based upon an interdisciplinary approach to enable the realization of successful systems, ISD has evolved to a variant of SE applied mainly for the development of IS. Given the growth in complexity, need for enterprise wide solutions, and the cost and schedule overruns that have be common place for modern software centric systems, well-established tools, techniques, and processes are needed for the development of good IS. Similarities and differences of methodology as well as their evolution and perspectives are also presented herein. We found a positive trend in the evolution of research methodology and published material in SE and its use in IS.
