The influence of mobile technology usage behavior on perceived work performance improvement

The influence of mobile technology usage behavior on perceived work performance improvement

One of the biggest challenges facing managers today is learning how to lead a multigenerational workforce. Many organizations have four generations of employees working alongside one another, and every generation has different expectations of what they want from the workplace (Lester et al., 2012). A generation is the social construction where individuals born during a similar period and these are influenced by historical, social events, and their experiences making them different from one other generation. These differences continue to be molded as aging (Howe and Strauss, 2007), influencing people's thoughts of authority, money, institutions, family and career (Conger, 2002). There are three classifications of age-based generations: baby boomers (1943- 1964) generation X (1965-1977) and generation Y (1978- 1990) (Parry and Urwin, 2011; Westerman and Yamamura, 2007), and in recent years we had the inclusion of generation Z, formed by people born after the nineties (Collistochi et al., 2012; Shah, 2009). Several studies, especially those directed to managers of companies, are between Y and Z generations (Batat, 2008; Mcmillan and Morrison, 2006; Nurullah, 2009), from the perspective that these generations are less committed at work (Becton et al., 2014). Likewise, these same generations would be more likely to use mobile technologies. By extension, we hypothesize that the generation affectsboth: usage behavior and perceived work performance improvement.

Social Media Usage at Workplace - An Empirical Investigation

Social Media Usage at Workplace - An Empirical Investigation

A statistical tool called Factor Analysis was used to analyze data that was collected through questionnaire. Factor analysis includes cluster of strategies that are primarily used for data reduction and summarization. Among various variables in research, few variables gather to denote certain factors that influence social media usage behavior.After selecting a method for factor extraction, the next step is to decide how any factors should be retained for rotation. Rotation is done to simplify and clarify the data structure. Varimax, quartimax, and equimax are commonly available orthogonal methods of rotation. Factor analysis is a large-sample procedure. If the sample is not large then generalization and replicable results are likely to show.

Analysis of the use of social media in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) using the Technology Acceptance Model

Analysis of the use of social media in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) using the Technology Acceptance Model

The purpose of this paper is to extend the understanding of the drivers of social media in higher education institutions (HEIs) in an emerging economy. This research adopts the Technology Acceptance Model but included subjective norm, perceived playfulness, Internet reliability and speed as additional constructs. With these inclusions, the model is appropriate and relevant in explaining users ’ adoption and usage behavior of social media. Data from 500 students from public and private HEIs in the Philippines were collected and analyzed. We used a combination of statistical analyses such as the Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) in analysing the complex relationships between determinants of these technologies. The research demonstrated that perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, subjective norm, and perceived playfulness (happiness) are robust predictors of usage behavior of students. However, Internet reliability and speed were only significant in (some) public HEIs. This evidence may be explained by the fact that information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure in public HEIs is not a priority or underinvested in developing countries. On the other hand, the analysis between public and private HEIs undertaken here extends our understanding towards the different behaviors of users. The findings, though

Big Data Usage Intention of Management Accountants: Blending the Utility Theory with the Theory of Planned Behavior in an Emerging Market Context

Big Data Usage Intention of Management Accountants: Blending the Utility Theory with the Theory of Planned Behavior in an Emerging Market Context

DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.813176 2805 Theoretical Economics Letters regarding the spend on various commodities. The theory of planned behavior (TBP) (Ajzen 1991) [17] is an intention model that explains and predicts beha- vior in multiple contexts (Chang 1998) [18]. Ajzen defines intention as the will to undertake a particular behavior. As per Ajzen, intention has three cognitive antecedents. The first one is the individual’s attitude (A), which could be favora- ble or otherwise for the target behavior. The second pertains to the subjective norms (SN) of the reference groups, which could include the opinion of family, friends, etc. on a behavior. Finally, the perceived behavior control (PBC) high- lights how easy or difficult it was for the individual to perform that behavior. It was observed that research on usage intention could not completely rely on the evidence from other domains to validate intention and establish an antecedent of big data usage behavior.

Access Control Policy: A Framework to Enforce 
                      Recommendations

Access Control Policy: A Framework to Enforce Recommendations

In the literature, most of traditional security models are unfortunately static. They in fact respond to user requests just by yes or no. Recently, some interesting works on access control framework that model obligations was proposed [15] [16] [17] [18]. The formalization of the obligation is different from one model to another. In XACML for example, obligations are all operations that must be filled in conjunction with the application of the authorization decision. In [15] and [19], there is a difference between provisions and obligations: provisions are actions or conditions that must be satisfied before an access decision is made, while obligations are actions that must be satisfied by the users or the system after the access decision is made. The specification language of obligations in [18] distinguishes between usages formulas and obligations formulas: usage formulas concern operations on the data that must be protected, while obligations formulas are conditions on the use of data. An obligation formulas become

Analyzing Users Behavior from Web Access Logs using Automated Log Analyzer Tool

Analyzing Users Behavior from Web Access Logs using Automated Log Analyzer Tool

Internet is acting as a major source of data. As the number of web pages continues to grow the web provides the data miners with just the right ingredients for extracting information. In order to cater to this growing need a special term called Web mining was coined. Web mining makes use of data mining techniques and deciphers potentially useful information from web data. Web Usage mining deals with understanding the behavior of users by making use of Web Access Logs that are generated on the server while the user is accessing the website. A Web access log comprises of various entries like the name of the user, his IP address, number of bytes transferred timestamp etc. A variety of Log Analyzer tools exist which help in analyzing various things like users navigational pattern, the part of the website the users are mostly interested in etc. The present paper makes use of such log analyzer tool called Web Log Expert for ascertaining the behavior of users who access an astrology website.

Semantic Information and Web based Product Recommendation System – A Novel Approach

Semantic Information and Web based Product Recommendation System – A Novel Approach

Though the authors proposed an online recommender system, the semantic information is not integrated into web usage mining. The authors in [14] used sequential mining for pattern generation by integrating semantic information however there was no technique to group the user. In this research paper the authors have advanced an architecture which adapts the idea of online and offline phase by integrating the semantic information in the offline phase. The list of recommendation is generated by using maximum subsequence problem. The system data flow of the recommender system is shown in Fig 1.

the time limit control, extensive browsing and texting logs, and location features. (3) ESET, which filters websites, manages application, and trails whereabouts faster. In addition, it is only applied in the family scope, where prevention is based on rules that are possibly broken on instances where changes occur in the functional environment. Furthermore, there are no historical data on behavior while using smartphones, hence, implementing dynamic treatments are not possible [10]. Conversely, several forms are dedicated in the prevention of smartphone addiction, e.g., Offtime, Moment, BreakFree, FlipD, and AppDetox. These are used and configured individually by the owner with the settings of limiting application usage time, filtering website and communication, as well as family tracking. In addition, BreakFree is specifically able to provide a score of addiction. [11]. Advance applications for recognizing smartphone user behavior of students, proposed by [19] are capable of recording usage through the installation of mobile applications, which is, therefore, sent to a server, with attributes of its name, time and duration of use. Supported by pattern analysis tools, clinicians are able to make suggestions, which are subsequently sent back to the end user. Therefore, the despondence of this research is based on [20], in order for students' smartphone behavior to be mapped in the classification of addictive and non-addictive. Unfortunately, no conclusion about this pattern characterization exists, while this application is not easy to use, especially for people with no data science capability, including ordinary parents and teachers. This is way, [13] proposed the intelligent recommender system (IRS), which is able to provide recommendations, either

Explaining media usage and media behavior: a comparison of social psychological determinants between the usage of online and traditional print newspapers

Explaining media usage and media behavior: a comparison of social psychological determinants between the usage of online and traditional print newspapers

Studies like these, as well as this study might be useful when it comes to designing media or launching new products, e.g. When the motivations of people and factors that lead to media consumption are known, the product could be adapted to the needs. Also, insight would be given in peoples’ motivations and usage criteria that might explain why the usage of a certain medium declines, or another medium becomes more and more important for users. When understanding the peoples’ reasons of why they prefer a certain medium instead of another, the process of why and how media develop through certain phases would be better understood. This might be important for, among others, media psychologists and media designers, as well as for editors of (online) newspapers or other information media. Media designers and editors could further investigate what factors of their medium they themselves could influence that lead to stronger reading habits, which in turn, might lead to a more intensive consumption of their media. As results of this study suggest, habit strength is a significant predictor of both, reading an online newspaper as well as a traditional newspaper. However, readers of online newspapers seem to score higher on habit strength, although habit strength seems to stronger explain the usage of traditional newspapers. Media psychologists might study if this effect is shown in similar contexts and media designers and editors could use the results to make their media more
