Influence of mobile information systems on workplace
Understanding the influence temporospatial and structural characteristics of work on the use of mobile information systems in the workplace.
Mobile information systems (IS) have been rapidly adopted by a large number of organizations across the globe. Despite their popularity, our understanding of the important factors surrounding the adoption of mobile information systems in the workplace is still largely anecdotal. The purpose of this study was to develop and test a model of the factors that influence user acceptance of mobile information systems in the workplace. A review of relevant literature provided the basis for the development of the conceptual model that guided this research. Based on a survey of 309 users of mobile IS from a wide range of organizations, statistically significant evidence emerged that temporal, spatial and structural characteristics of the portfolio of tasks performed by users of mobile IS in the workplace influenced their perceived individual need for mobile IS. It was also found that perceived individual need for mobile IS significantly influences performance expectancy, and that system portability has a positive effect on effort expectancy as well as on intentions to use mobile IS.
