TL;DR: Empirical results provide substantial support for the use of usefulness as an IS success measure, and of the hitherto-unreported importance of "Importance of the task" in user perceptions of IS usefulness.
Abstract: DeLone and McLean's (1992) comprehensive review of different information system success measures concludes with a model of interrelationships between six IS Success constructs. This paper critically examines the meaning of four of these constructs and the evidence of relationships between them. It then provides results from empirical tests of these relationships. Tests are conducted using both conventional ordinary least squares regression path analysis and structural equation modeling - with substantially similar results. The empirical results provide substantial support for the "up stream" two thirds of DeLone and McLean's model. Three factors. System Quality, Information Quality, and Usefulness, are found to explain 75% of the variance in the overall User Satisfaction measure. The empirical results also provide substantial support for the use of usefulness as an IS success measure, and of the hitherto-unreported importance of "Importance of the task" in user perceptions of IS usefulness.

TL;DR: The results show that mimetic and coercive pressures significantly drive green IS & IT adoption, and suggest the complementary relationship between mimetic & coercive pressures.
Abstract: This article examines how institutional pressures affect the adoption of green IS & IT across organizations. From the natural-resource-based perspective, it examines green IS & IT practices with strategic foci on pollution prevention, product stewardship, and sustainable development. Each category incorporates the separate roles played by IT (as a problem) and IS (as a solution). The partial least square method was employed to analyze the survey replies from 75 organizations. The results show that mimetic and coercive pressures significantly drive green IS & IT adoption. In particular, outcome-based imitation and imposition-based coercion represent major institutional processes. The results also suggest the complementary relationship between mimetic and coercive pressures. Such interaction significantly motivates the green IS & IT adoption focusing on product stewardship. These findings contribute to existing knowledge on the pro-environmental behaviors of organizations, demonstrate the interaction between institutional forces, and further current understanding of green IS & IT adoption The study concludes with a general discussion of eco-goals and their relationship to institutional theory before considering the implications and directions for research and practice.

TL;DR: It was found that young people’s adoption of the phones were quite different to those on ongoing use and so the influences on adoption do not predict long-term use and it is clear that studying adoption is only one step towards understanding technology acceptance and use.
Abstract: Users appropriate a technology through a process of evaluation that results either in rejection or adoption, adaptation and integration of the technology into their everyday activities Currently this process, and the influences on users’ decisions within that process, is poorly understood This paper reports a research project that examines young people’s appropriation of mobile technologies Thirty young Australians were supplied with a free WAP phone for a month and were tracked from their expectations, the initial encounter and the first month of use of a WAP phone We found that the influences on their adoption of the phones were quite different to those on ongoing use and so the influences on adoption do not predict long-term use It is clear that studying adoption is only one step towards understanding technology acceptance and use and that rejection of a technology, even one that is supplied free of cost, is an ever-present option

TL;DR: The aim of this paper is to explore an important category of information systems knowledge that is termed “design theory”, the limited understanding and recognition of this type of theory in information systems indicates that further debate concerning its nature and role in the authors' discipline is needed.
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to explore an important category of information systems knowledge that is termed “design theory” This knowledge is distinguished as the fifth of five types of theory: (i) theory for analysing and describing, (ii) theory for understanding, (iii) theory for predicting, (iv) theory for explaining and predicting, and (v) theory for design and action Examples of design theory in information systems are provided, with associated research methods The limited understanding and recognition of this type of theory in information systems indicates that further debate concerning its nature and role in our discipline is needed
