Using Organisational Information Processing Maturity as a Predictor of Information Technology Adoption

Document Type

Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) is a switching and multiplexing mechanism operating over a fibre-based physical network. It can be used to provide virtual private network services to businesses. Today, ATM services represent a billion-dollar business around the world. The adoption of ATM technology will probably change the current networking systems, upgrade the quality of current networks and provide increased services. Despite the increasing deployment of ATM technology and the important role it plays in today’s information technology infrastructure, little research has been found to its study with respect to social sciences. The present study examined information processing maturity and its relationship with the adoption of ATM technology in organisations. Research results provided strong evidence that there is a statistically significant relationship between organisational information processing maturity and ATM adoption in organisations.
