This page needs to be split into different things. The company and the scientific pursuit championed by "Hevner, A. R., March, S. T., Park, J., & Ram, S. (2004). Design science in information systems research. MIS Quarterly, 28 (1), 75–106." are two totally different concepts. Particularly within the Information Systems discipline, DS is a major methodology. See "Proceedings of the first international conference on design science research in information systems and technology, DESRIST 2006 February 24-25, 2006" for more information about it.

Design as science in information systems, a bit Hevner heavy
There's a number of other academics that have done work in Design Science in Information Systems, including Hasan, Ellis and Levy and March and Storey. All of which have attempted to refine the Design Science approach in Information Systems. Although as it stands now adding these authors is seemingly a rather time consuming task. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 08:30, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
The whole section seems mis-placed and someone's personal attempt to insert a rant on information systems. I suggest it be removed. Designergene (talk) 13:27, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
About the distinction between "design as a science" and "science of design"
User Johngee1 has made a major change where it states that (Sydney A.) Gregory introduces a distinction between "design as a science" and "science of design", but I didn't find that on the referred source (Gregory, 1966). To my knowledge, it is Nigel Cross who makes that distinction in a clear way (Cross, Nigel. Design as a Discipline. In Designerly Ways of Knowing. London: Springer-Verlag, 2006.). There are previous formulations of that distinction at least as early as in "Design Method and Scientific Method" (Design Studies vol 2 no 4 october 1981).
