  • Cloud computing is an upcoming technology and emerging concept in the field of information technologies. Companies have begun to invest in cloud computing with the expectation that it will improve their business performances, operations, and processes. However, many companies are not so much aware of the cloud computing, so they can hesitate to adopt this new technology. The aims of the study are analyzing factors affecting the adoption of cloud computing and applying structural equation modeling technique to analyze the important dimensions of the adoption. Concordantly, previous studies are examined and expert interviews are arranged. Based on both our literature review and expert interviews, a model is proposed to measure the adoption of cloud computing. It is obvious that there are scarce researches about cloud computing adoption in the literature. Thus, the originality of the paper lies on that it proposes a research model for cloud computing adoption and it investigates various dimensions of cloud computing adoption in detail.

  • The purposes of this study were to clarify whether the health belief model could explain the women's adoption of sterilization and to find the factors which influence the adoption of sterilization. To achieve these purpose, 35 women, who visited the family planning hospital to undergo an surgical operation for sterilization, were selected and named the group of adoption. Also, 36 women, who have the same demographic characteristics as the group of adoption, and have no sterilization among the married women, were selected and named the group of non-adoption. The measuring instruments used in this study were made by the researchers on the basis of the results of the review of the related literatures. The validity of these instruments was examined by one professor majoring in nursing and two family plmanning practioners. The reliability was proven by calculation of Cronbach's α with data of the group of adoption. The data was analyzed by t-test, X²-test, and ANOVA using Computer SAS system. The results were following: 1. Health belief model could be said to explain whether women accept the sterilization or not, because the degrees of susceptibility and severity for future pregnancy and the degree of benefit or adoption of sterilization in the group of ad-option are higher than those of the group of non-adoption. 2. Influence of demographic variables on health belief variables was as follows. With advancing ages, degree of susceptibility increased in the group of adoption, and the higher the number of artificial abortion increased, the higher degree of barrier increased in the group of non-adoption. Suggestions for further studies and application to the nursing practice are as follows 1. If one wants to educate the non-adoption women, one would be better to give such information as to increase the perception of susceptibility, severity and benefit. 2. New instrument to measure the perceived barrier which includes such items as fear on well-ness of the existing children, objection of husband and postoperative complication, is needed. 3. A study to find the change of perception on health belief variables is needed, after education to increase the level of perceived susceptibility and severity on the future pregnancy, and benefit on sterilization is given.

  • The Korean Government is enforcing policies to activate domestic adoption in order to guarantee and protect stable family lives of children requiring protection. We surveyed recognitions and attitudes toward adoption and adoption policies of Daejeon citizens. The result will be important information for activating domestic adoption. We could find that motives of adoption centered on adopted children rather than adoptive parents. Especially, the recognition level toward open adoption is high, which shows that the domestic adoption can be activated if multiple political supports are provided for adopted children and adoptive families.

  • Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate major factors influencing adoption of smartphone to promote its use by older adults. Background: Despite increasing proportion of elderly people and elderly market, the proportion of elderly smartphone user is still relatively small compared to whole smartphone users. Thus, we need to find out major factors influencing adoption of smartphone to increase proportion of elderly smartphone users. Method: Seven major factors were extracted from 36 survey questions using factor analysis. Regression analysis was also applied to determine specific factors affecting intention of use based on user versus non-user of smartphone, age, gender, and educational background. Results: As results of factor analysis and regression analysis, major factors influencing adoption of smartphone for elderly users were significantly different according to gender, age, educational background based on smartphone users or non-users. Conclusion: The result of this study identified major factors influencing adoption of smartphone for the elderly and provided basic information related to adoption of smartphone according to elderly people's characteristics. Consequently, we can expect to reduce the information gap and to improve quality of life for the elderly. Application: The development and marketing strategy could be applied differently based on the factors influencing adoption of smartphone. It is also possible to develop a prediction model for smartphone adoption according to elderly users' characteristics.

To explain women's fashion adoption at the point of clothing purchases, fashion innovativeness and 3 dimensions of purchase situation were adopted as explanatory variables. Total usable questionnaires were obtained from 801 women aged between 20 and 39. Factor analysis on purchase situation resulted in 3 dimensional structures of purchase situation: Store atmosphere, Store policy and Pre-purchase condition. Women groups divided by fashion innovativeness level showed meaningful differences in their purchase situation level and fashion adoption level. Women groups divided by 3 dimensions of purchase situation also showed significant differences in fashion innovativeness level and fashion adoption level. Fashion innovativeness, Store atmosphere and Pre-purchase condition except Store policy positively affected fashion adoption.
