TL;DR: In this paper, a breve revisao de literatura sobre tres teorias of aceitacao de tecnologia de informacao, namely Theory of Reasoned Action (TRA), Theory of Planed Behavior (TPB) and Technology Accepentace Model (TAM), is presented.
Abstract: A aceitacao e o uso de tecnologias da informacao e um assunto que tem recebido a atencao de pesquisadores e profissionais na area de Ciencia da Computacao, Sistemas de Informacao e Ciencia da Informacao, visto que trabalham na perspectiva de que um sistema bem desenvolvido sera utilizado, pois partem do pressuposto que boas solucoes em software, podem trazer vantagens competitivas as empresas e/ou aos individuos. Entender porque as pessoas usam ou rejeitam computadores tornou-se um dos mais desafiadores temas em pesquisas sobre os sistemas de informacao. Na literatura, e possivel identificar diversas teorias que tentam prever o impacto da tecnologia no comportamento humano, contudo nesse artigo faremos uma breve revisao de literatura sobre tres teorias que se destacaram como teorias de aceitacao de tecnologia. Sao elas: Theory of Reasoned Action – TRA; a Theory of planned behavior – TPB e finalmente o Technology Accepentace Model – TAM, modelo que sera nesse trabalho, detalhadamente explicado, pois e o mais conhecido e utilizado na area de sistemas de informacao.
TL;DR: An application of Lotka Law at whole of authors with publication in field of “Information Science”, between 1996 and 2007, shows results that show it is lower in the work of Voos (1974), as in the Sen, Taib e Hassan (1996), in this camp.
Abstract: We introduce an application of Lotka Law at whole of authors with publication in field of “Information Science”, between 1996 and 2007. The application executed applied the methodology of Lee Pao (1985). It was selected every authors who appears in authors camps, doesn’t make any cut in the distribution and the estimate of critical values was been calculate using the proposal formula by Nicholls (1989). The results show us the data: one pending equal a ‘-2,75’, the obtained it is lower in the work of Voos (1974), as in the Sen, Taib e Hassan (1996), in this camp; a percentage of authors, executors of one work only, it is equal a 79% and a excellent adjust of the Lotka Law, to be application at the Kolmogorov-Smirnov.
TL;DR: In this paper, the importance of e-learning in higher education with its extent and growth in Indian LIS education has been discussed and some of the major Indian initiatives and the target segments covered by the online education have also been detailed.
Abstract: E-Learning is as an approach to instruction and learning that utilize Information and communication technologies to communicate and collaborate in an educational milieu. This includes technological expertise that supplements traditional classroom training with web-based components and learning environments where the educational process is experienced online. This paper reflects the importance of e-learning in higher education with its extent and growth in Indian LIS education. Some of the major Indian initiatives and the target segments covered by the online education have also been detailed in this article. Emphasizes the importance of perception in relation of information technologies and communication, so that futures leaders will be better prepared regarding these technologies. The paper presents future perspective in relation to e-learning in India, where demand within higher education is no different from that seen in developed countries. The e-learning was being considered useful only for distance learning programs. But no one can deny the fact that e-learning is the most innovative application of the Internet and it has done wonders globally and currently is achieving education classroom as well.
TL;DR: In this article, the authors introduce the issues and justifies the need to count on an integral methodology to the development of these audits in organizational level, which may also occur among the audits in both the resources.
Abstract: Since the decade of 80 when the information management as a resource had a higher emphasis, it also aroused the need to deepen the control measures of such information. This way appeared the informational audit with different focuses. One decade later, the organizations evaluated that the work with information was not enough, but that people and their knowledge marked differences. Then they began to study the phenomenon of the management processes associated to the organizational knowledge, generating also different kinds of audit to this resource. If between the information and the knowledge exist skidding borders, the same may also occur among the audits in both the resources. In fact when an information audit is made in any manner the knowledge is present and vice versa. Therefore, this route presents us the option to think in the integration of both the focuses in an integral methodology which may develop in different organizations. This article introduces us to these issues and justifies the need to count on an integral methodology to the development of these audits in organizational level.
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors have realized a brief literature revision in the knowledge management and sustainable competitive advantage fields, presenting concepts and approaches, in order to understand the interaction of these constructs with competence and innovations constructs.
Abstract: Organizations while seeking to establish higher standards of performance and sustainable competitive advantage have been stimulating a critical reflection about the factors that affect the performance of the individual and of the organizations. Knowledge became one of the main organizational competitive factors and knowledge management could contribute as a enhancer of organizational results. This paper aims to demonstrate the importance os knowledge management practices as a promoter of sustainable competitive advantage, considering its influence in the organizational context. For this, this theoretical paper has realized a brief literature revision in the knowledge management and sustainable competitive advantage fields, presenting concepts and approaches, in order to understand the interaction of these constructs with competence and innovations constructs. The results signalized that the comprehension of the relations between competences and innovation, anchored by knowledge management, is the assurance of the adequate conduction of the mechanisms through the competitive advantage could be sustained. For demonstrating this, it was proposer a systematized model to knowledge management and competitive advantage, structured with competence and innovation constructs. .
