Kim, Sang-Yeoul ; Chang, Yun-Hi ;
The Journal of Information Systems, volume 15, issue 4, 2006, Pages 1~22
Nowadays, IS projects are getting more complicated and large-scaled. Therefore, many researchers and practitioners have been interested in the IS development methodologies, automated tools, techniques, and TQM to improve IS performance. Latest Standish Group's research reported that after the PMO introduction, project scale became bulkier than 1 or 2 year ago, and that IS development project success probability was increased sharply by 62 percents from 37. The previous researches listed just various PMO functions. This research is to seize the core functions and management level of the PMO affecting on the IS project performance with banks which are the leading industry to accept the PMO in Korea. The activities in the categories of implementation management technology support management infrastructure management are the core functions of the PMO to affect the IS performance including schedule management quality management user and stakeholders' satisfaction. Also, the PMO management level is important for IS project success. Among the 5 levels PMI suggested, PMO can implement the project effectively at least at the third level. Korean companies which are about to introduce the PMO have to consider the PMO core functions and management level to increase the IS maturity.

Kwon, Young-Guk ; Lee, Sun-Ro ; Park, Hyun-Jee ;
The Journal of Information Systems, volume 15, issue 4, 2006, Pages 23~53
The main purpose of this paper is to setup a integrated model and verify the integrated model for a customer loyalty in the internet shopping environments. The results of a structural equation model (SEM) using AMOS and LISREL include: First, hypothesis that Internet environment characteristics in outside factors has a positive effect on satisfaction, trust and commitment is partially supported. However, mutual communication to satisfaction, community to commitment and open-ubiquity to trust did not reveal a positive effect. Second, hypothesis that Internet showing mall environment has a positive effect on satisfaction is partially supported. However, transaction to commitment and transaction to trust did not reveal a positive effect. Third, hypothesis that relational benefits has a positive effect on both satisfaction and commitment is partially supported. However, confident honest to commitment and economic honest to trust did not reveal a positive effect. Forth, satisfaction trust and commitment have a strong effect upon loyalty. Fifth, satisfaction has a positive effect on trust and commitment. However, trust did not show a positive effect on commitment. Outside factors(Internet environment characteristics, showing mall characteristics, and relational benefit) partially revealed a positive effect on satisfaction trust, and commitment. Mediating variables such as satisfaction, trust, and commitment again have positive effect on loyalty. But, the relationship for trust to commitment did not reveal the significant effect in this study while other studies revealed significant effect.
An Integrated Study concerning Antecedent Variables affecting the intention-to-use of on-line shopping malls: An Extended Model of TAM2
Park, Kwan-Hee ;
The Journal of Information Systems, volume 15, issue 4, 2006, Pages 55~72
The total market capacities of our domestic on-line shopping malls had reached over one billion wons in 2005. They are also estimated to reach 1.8 billion wons in 2008. In order to reveal some relationships between six antecedent variables and intention-to-use of online shooing malls, this study has extended the original TAM2 model using these variables obtained from (1) perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use from TAM2 model, (2) compatibility from IDT theory, (3) perceived enjoyment from Flow theory, and (4) others (perceived risk and self efficacy). Two statistical packages such as SPSS 12.0 and Lirel 8.70 were used for data analyses. Among these seven proposed hypotheses, six hypotheses were accepted while one hypothesis regarding perceived risk was rejected. As perceived risk hypothesis concerning the intention-to-use was rejected, the perceived risk did not show the support of the intention-to-use.

The purpose of this study was to verify and analyze the factors that influence the acceptance intention of u-Commerce users under ubiquitous computing environments. To accomplish this, the Technology Acceptance Model(TAM) of Davis(1989), which has widely been cited in new technologies such as information technology(IT) and information systems(IS) studies was used to develop the research model. First of all, personal characteristics affecting the acceptance intention of u-Commerce were identified as individual variables through literature review. Utilizing the use of the individual variables and the TAM model, the u-Commerce acceptance intention model was established. The research findings indicated that IT acceptance forms and frequencies in IT use did not have a significant impact on perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use of u-Commerce. It was also found that the perceived usefulness proposed in the u-Commerce acceptance model influenced the perceived usefulness. Both ease of use and usefulness were identified to influence attitude for use. Finally, usefulness and attitude for use also positively influenced acceptance intention. The contribution of this study was the examination of the factors affecting acceptance intention of users in u-Commerce and the verification of the usefulness of the TAM model in describing the acceptance of u-Commerce users using structure acceptance model. Furthermore, this study has empirically analyzed how personal characteristics widely used in the study of acceptance of IT can influence the acceptance of u-Commerce.

The development of IT has made it possible to use various terminal systems for financial transaction and demands for financial survices are getting more and more diversified at the same time. Among others, mobile banking service market based on IC chips has been expanded its service areas and the number of mobile banking users has been increased. The study analyzes and tests the dynamic effects of the inflow of potential customers on mobile banking market condition by using system dynamics methodology to identify the dynamic structure of mobile banking market. The simulation model is designed to track the variation in the number of subscribers of mobile banking servides according to two scenarios, and the results are as follows; First the effect of word of mouth by customers who have used the service already is significant. The satisfactory level of early adopters is reflected in WOM, and as a test result shows, increase in word-of-mouth causes the growth of potential customers' demands for mobile banking service. Second, perceived attractiveness of mobile banking service market is another important construct. Factors such as convenience, mobility, time saving, security, and various services explain the construct perceived attractiveness of the service, and it makes the potential customers adopt the service, causing the increase of demands.

Internet shopping mall has dual nature of information technology features defined by the web-based application system and marketing features explained by the shopping marketplaces. The purpose of this study aims at analyzing the consumer's attempt to purchase and re-purchase intention to the internet shopping mall to combine the IT perspective and the marketing perspective. This paper develop the integrated research model with the acceptance behaviors of customers through consumer's purchase decision process(pre-purchase stage and post-purchase stage). The results from an empirical survey as follows: First, the integrated model is valid in predicting the acceptance of the internet shopping malls by using structured equation modeling. Second, there are the differences between pre-purchase stage and post-purchase stage by each conceptual constructs. Finally, the results of MSEM(Multi-group Structured Equation Modeling) indicate the perceived ease of use and perceived trust to the attitude to the internet shopping mall is more effectively predicted at the pre-purchase stage. Vice versa, the perceived usefulness to the intention to the purchase intention of internet shopping mall is more effectively predicted at the post-purchase stage. This study provides an integrative approach to develop the effective and successful internet shopping mall strategy.

Exploring the Success Factors of the e-Learning Systems
Lee, Moon-Bong ; Kim, Jong-Weon ;
The Journal of Information Systems, volume 15, issue 4, 2006, Pages 171~188
Information technology and the Internet have had a dramatic effect on education method and individual life. Universities and companies we making large investments in e-Learning applications but are hard to pressed to evaluate the success of their e-Learning systems. e-Learning can be seen as not only one of Internet based information systems which can provide education services but also one of teaching-teaming methods which can implement self-directed teaming. This paper tests the updated model of information system success proposed by Delone and McLean using a field study of a e-Learning. The five dimensions - information quality, system quality, service quality, user satisfaction, net benefit - of the updated model are parsimonious framework for organizing the e-learning success metrics identified in the literature. Questionaires are collected from 107 students who are enrolling a e-learning class using online survey. The model is tested using SPSS and LISREL. The results show that information quality and service quality are significant predictors of user satisfaction with the e-Learning system but system quality is not. Also user satisfaction is found to be a strong predictor of the learning performance. This strong association between user satisfaction and teaming performance suggests that user satisfaction may serve as a valid surrogate for teaming performance. Empirical testing of the updated DeLone & McLean model should therefore be extended to cover a wider variety of systems.

The progress of mobile internet technologies has changed user access to information. The mobile internet allows to obtain contents and services from wireless networks via mobile devices. The purpose of this study is th find out important factors that influence on the customer purchase intention by mobile internet environment. Base on TAM(Technology Acceptance Model) and the latest literature, a comprehensive set of constructs and hypotheses were compiled with a methodology for testing them. We suggested five factors that effect purchase intention in mobile internet environment: Enjoyment Ease of use, Usefulness, Mobility, Trust To validate the research model, we collected data from cellular phone user using an online survey. The results of this study are as follows. First enjoyment ease of un, usefulness, and mobility had positive effects on trust. Second, Usefulness, ease of use, and trust had positive effects on purchase intention to use mobile internet. Third, enjoyment and mobility did not have positive effects on purchase intention to use mobile internet. Based on these results, we suggest marketing strategies.

This study investigates the application of data mining techniques such as artificial neural networks, rough sets, and induction teaming to the intrusion detection systems. To maximize the effectiveness of data mining for intrusion detection systems, we introduced the asymmetric costs with false positive errors and false negative errors. And we present a method for intrusion detection systems to utilize the asymmetric costs of errors in data mining. The results of our empirical experiment show our intrusion detection model provides high accuracy in intrusion detection. In addition the approach using the asymmetric costs of errors in rough sets and neural networks is effective according to the change of threshold value. We found the threshold has most important role of intrusion detection model for decreasing the costs, which result from false negative errors.

A Framework for Enterprise Information Supply Chain Using XBRL Web Services
Jung, Chul-Yong ;
The Journal of Information Systems, volume 15, issue 4, 2006, Pages 247~268
We introduce about XBRL, eXtensible Business Reporting Language, which is widely accepted as the international standard language for business financial reporting. XBRL is a language for the electronic communication of business and financial data which is revolutionizing business reporting around the world. It provides major benefits in the preparation, analysis and communication of business information. It offers cost savings, greater efficiency and improved accuracy and reliability to all those involved in supplying or using financial data. XBRL is a kind of XML application based on the open Internet technologies. We propose a framework for enterprise information supply chain using XBRL Web services. A Web service is defined as a software system based on XML and designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over a network by the W3C. Web services are frequently just application programming interfaces (API) that can be accessed over a network, such as the internet and executed on a remote system hosting the requested services. An XBRL Web service-based enterprise information supply chain enables for companies to implement seamless information supply chains from businesses to financial institutions, to supervisory authorities, and to other stake holders for real time information access. And thereby it is expected to contribute to the increase in the value of companies due to the enhanced visibility and transparency of accounting and management.
