Title: Measuring E-readiness for E-government in Developing Country: Comparative Study
Author: Abushama, Hisham; Rashed, Abdullah; Al-Eryani, Arwa
Abstract: Many models have been designed to measure the e-readiness for e-government such as Hofstede Model, Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT). These models have been classified as most used in e-readiness field. To investigate the country's e-readiness for e- government acceptance, we use a comparative method to compare between the most influential and robust models (in terms of usage in E- readiness field) that explaining information technology adoption behavior. This comparison aims to produce suitable model for measuring the e-readiness for e-government in developing countries. The findings show that Hofstede Model and TAM were designed to examine IT/IS adoption in business organizations, where the employees are trained and forced to use them. In the other hand, UTAUT has been designed in the existence of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). It expands the number of factors leading to behavioral intention and use behavior. The findings of research show also that UTAUT is the best model to measure e-readiness for e-government in the developing countries with some modification to meet the developing countries needs.
