Abstract

Organizations invest in information technology and systems because they provide economic value to the business. While recognizing the importance of the management information systems in the organization, the majority of Arab countries in Middle East and underdeveloped countries are still dealing with issues in adopting the technologies. Research in technology adoption among the Middle East countries more focused on internet banking, e-government and e-commerce area. Notwithstanding that individuals in the Middle East are known as late adopter, organizations in Middle East are unable to infuse management system into their business processes. To fully adopt the management information systems, organization must understand the three dimensions of information system; organization, people and technology itself. Thus, this study aims to shed some light on the management information systems adoption among the employees at telecommunication companies in Yemen. The study of the country is still inadequate and less exposure. Hence, the purpose of this study is to provide a conceptual framework for analyzing the factors affecting management information systems adoption. As the organization responsible for providing internet and mobile phones, telecommunication companies should be the first to adopt the latest technology in the market to better provide good infrastructures. In accordance, this study may help managers and policy makers identify the factors in their effort to attract more employees and to adopt the management information systems in the organization.
