    The last decade has seen a rise in research on the topic of challenges associated with information systems (IS) in corporate mergers and acquisitions (M&As). Although this proliferation of research has the potential to significantly improve our understanding of IS challenges in M&A activity, absent is the necessary step of consolidating and integrating extant knowledge. In this paper, we review the domain of IS integration in M&As with focus on what have been studied and how it has been studied. By reviewing 37 articles, published in 13 journals, 5 conference proceedings this paper identifies patterns and gaps, and provides directions for future research.
