Reconceptualizing Usage for Contemporary Information Systems (ERP) Success

Sedera, Darshana & Tan, Felix (2007) Reconceptualizing Usage for Contemporary Information Systems (ERP) Success. In ECIS 2007 - The 15th European Conference on Information Systems, 7-9 June 2007, St. Gallen, Switzerland.

Abstract

System Usage has been employed as a key variable in Information System (IS) success research over the past three decades. Despite the obvious popularity of employing Usage as a measure of IS success, a recent study by Burton-Jones and Straub (2006) allude to the weaknesses in Usage in IS research. The key weaknesses they identified include; lack of theoretical grounding, no widely accepted definition, and the use of unsystematized measures. In an attempt to address the aforementioned weaknesses in prior studies, this study reconceptualizes Usage employing four interrelated dimensions. The Adaptive Structuration Theory provides the much required theoretical grounding for distilling rich and comprehensive Usage measures for contemporary IS.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
