  • Describe the technology acceptance research model in an IT Context

"The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), as conceived by Davis (1989). It was originally formulated in an attempt to understand why people accept or reject information systems. It is now a well established and validated method (Lederer, Maupin, Sena & Zhuang, 2000) used to evaluate information technology-based systems, and this is reflected in the fact that the Institute for Scientific Information Social Science Citation Index listed 335 journal citations between 1999 and 2004 on the use of TAM (Money & Turner, 2004). This is further corroborated by Burton-Jones and Hubona (2005), who stated that “an impressive body of research has validated and extended TAM”." (Verhaart, 2009, p 26[1])
