Sedera, Darshana and Lokuge, Sachithra ORCID: and Krcmar, Helmut and Srivastava, Shirish C. and Ravishankar, M. N. (2014) The future of outsourcing in the Asia-Pacific region: implications for research and practice — panel report from PACIS 2014. Communications of the Association for Information Systems, 35:17. pp. 317-331. ISSN 1529-3181


This paper summarizes a panel discussion held at the 18th Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems (PACIS) in Chengdu, China, 2014, with the same title. The panel discussed the future of outsourcing in the Asia- Pacific region (specifically the importance of outsourcing, new trends, and issues in outsourcing). This paper provides directions for future research that surpasses regional specificity (i.e., the Asia-Pacific region), and contributes to research interests on outsourcing in general.
