We regret that the video of the panel is not included here. The quality of this video turned out to be unsatisfactory because of some technical issues. The panel was moderated by Varghese Jacob, Vice Dean, Naveen Jindal School of Management, University of Texas, Dallas. The panelists were Ramayya Krishnan, Dean, Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy, Carnegie Mellon University; Barrie Nault, Distinguished Research Professor, Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary, Canada: and Vallabh Sambamurthy, Dean, School of Business, University of Wisconsin, Madison. They all presented articulate and enjoyable accounts of their observations over the years about Prabuddha De as a professional and friend.
