Bis adoption determinants in SMEs: An exploratory study

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The information systems (IS) literature has long emphasized the positive impact of information provided by business intelligence systems (BIS) on decision-making. While prior research has mainly focused on adoption of BIS in large-sized organizations, our focus shifts on small and medium enterprises (SME) as important contributors to a country's economic development, technological advancement, and job creation. The aim of our research is to identify the SME-specific determinants of BIS adoption on firm level that will guide the development and confirmatory testing of an integral BIS adoption model in a context of SMEs. By leveraging semi-structured interviews of BIS experts and adopters, and blending them with comprehensive information technology (IT)/IS adoption literature we identified several determinant candidates for future BIS adoption model determinants.
