RAMIREZ CORREA, Patricio and ALFARO PEREZ, Jorge. Exploratory study of the impact of the social network at the individual level of acceptance of enterprise systems. Ingeniare. Rev. chil. ing. [online]. 2012, vol.20, n.1, pp. 40-47. ISSN 0718-3305. doi: 10.4067/S0718-33052012000100005.
The purpose of this paper is to explore the impact of the social network in using enterprise systems. Using a model of information technology acceptance based on TAM, this paper explores the social network associated with the effective use of the enterprise system. The research model incorporated the following variables: social norms, computer anxiety, results demonstrability, job relevance, perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, behavior intention to use and use of the system. In a sample of 90 individuals, the SEM-PLS analysis of the model included the values associated with measures of centrality and network density. The research model and initial results of this analysis are presented in this article.
