Track 25             IS Innovation, Adoption and Diffusion

Short Description of the Track

When the technology acceptance model (TAM, Davis 1989) was developed in 1989 computers were new and alien to many organizations and individuals. At that time, technologies were designed to automate administrative and transactional work typically by utilizing large enterprise systems. Now digital technologies are ubiquitous in every aspect of our societies, work, and lives. With an unrelenting pace of innovation, organizations and consumers now face many new dilemmas, new questions, and new uncertainties. On the one hand, users might feel challenged to adapt to changes induced by new digital technologies. On the other hand, users might employ digital technologies to reap benefits for the individual or organization. Studying these different forms of technology use is important, as Thomas Davenport concluded in his keynote at the CIO symposium at ICIS 2015 in Fort Worth, as a discipline, "we need to begin preparing people for the impacts of these technologies". While digital technologies infuse and shape our daily lives, many core theoretical perspectives derive from the time when computers where new and not widely used by many individuals. Hence, there is a need to reconsider old theories, to develop new theories and to employ novel methodological approaches in order to understand how individuals, organizations or societies adopt and use information technology. Therefore, we solicit contributions that advance theory and employ diverse methodological approaches (e.g., qualitative, quantitative, design science, action research, data analytics etc.) that extend understanding of the diffusion of digital technologies.

Potential topics include:
* Organizational adoption and use of digital technologies
* Individual adoption, use, and discontinuance of digital technologies
* Factors enabling or inhibiting acceptance and use of digital technologies
* Positive and negative consequences of using digital technologies for both organizations and individuals
* New theoretical perspectives on acceptance, use and diffusion of digital technologies
* New methodological approaches to study acceptance, use and diffusion of digital technologies
