Abstract

Information Technology (IT) in the present era has affected
all aspects of organizations as a new strategy; therefore imagine an
organization without IT and keeping abreast with new technologies seems
impossible. The current research seeks to identify factors affecting the
adoption of IT innovation in governmental organizations. To this end the
indices affecting IT Innovation adoption have been extracted after
reviewing theoretical background and categorized in 5 factors using
Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA). Also Confirmatory Factor Analysis
(CFA) based on Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) has been used to
investigate the relation between indices and factors. Research Findings
show that indices like relative advantage & innovativeness, security &
reliability, organizational culture, managerial support, socio-economic
status and cooperation & coordination among organization departments
play an important role in IT Innovating adoption.
