... The literature identifies perceived risks as an essential element of a relationship when security, trust or uncertainty is present (Akturan & Tezcan, 2012;Chen, 2013;Gewald & Dibbern, 2009;Horst et al., 2007;Oh et al., 2012). The intention to focus on implication and impact of the perceived risk factor in this study is because recents studies reveals that the dark side of cloud computing are the security concerns which become a main barrier toward cloud computing acceptance, adoption and implementation (Buyya et al., 2009;Jaatun et al., 2012;Wyld, 2010). ...

The reason to explain the cloud computing assimilation, as well as the understanding of the operational performance, still remains unclear. To investigate this issue, this study has examined the assimilation of cloud computing by examining the organization’s implementation of cloud computing and performance in the Malaysian public sector. Grounded by the Diffusion of Innovation Theory (DOI), Technology-Organization-Environment Framework (TOE) and IS Success Model. This study proposes a framework by decomposing Technological characteristic, Organizational characteristics, Environmental characteristics and Human characteristics as factors. A total of 169 agencies from the Malaysian public sector have participated in this study. Data for all the study variables have been collected through self-administered survey questionnaires and analysed using SEM-PLS. The study has shown that the effect of the operational effectiveness of cloud implementation is at a lower level. The study also reveals that factors of relative advantage, compatibility, perceived risks, top management support, and organizational readiness are found to have a significant effect on cloud computing implementation. However, both external support and government regulations are not significant to the cloud computing implementation in the Malaysian public sector. The results indicate that the model provides a good understanding of the factors that influence the implementation of cloud computing as well as operational performance.
... Indeed, Liu (2019) argues understanding the nature of entrepreneurial decision-making is essential for entrepreneurship research. Even if knowledge about growth were available, small firm's limited experiences may not offer directions in how best to use the knowledge (Oh et al. 2012;Presutti and Odorici 2019). ...

Contrary to a simple model of small firm growth where increased inputs produce greater outputs, we consider growth is a complex and difficult process. Accordingly, the paper is concerned with how small firms grow, especially how they make sense of the growth process. We collected narratives of the experiences of small firm growth in an extended case study to draw out how growth is understood and managed. We saw how owners became entangled in the process of growing, especially where a change in one aspect led to problems in other dimensions of growth. Their narratives were about trying to make sense, and give some sense to the complexity of growth and some direction to what they should manage. We identified a repertoire of narrative forms: Growth is understood through output indicators, growth is treated as the internal development of the firm and finally, growth is taken to be inevitable - a necessity to which the firm has to conform. These illustrate how growth can be understood as processes of growing, bound up in the context, created in space and time, and contingent on how growth is understood and experienced. Far from a smooth trajectory, enacting growth reflects the experience of the moment, it is shaped by reactions rather than strategy and it is messy rather than ordered. This study contributes to the literature by complementing the functionalist and output oriented view by understanding firm growth as a social phenomenon constructed and reconstructed in the interactions between people and experiences of context.

This study is to examine the assimilation of cloud computing by measuring the organization's assimilation of cloud as well as performance in the Malaysian public sector. This study mainly integrates the Diffusion of Innovation Theory (DOI), Technology-Organization-Environment Framework (TOE) Human-Organization-Technology (HOT-fit) model and IS Success model to understand this issue. A total of 169 agencies from the Malaysian public sector have participated in this study. Data for all the study variables have been collected through self-administered survey questionnaires and analyzed using SEM-PLS. The study has shown that the effect of the operational effectiveness of cloud implementation is at the lower level. The study also reveals that only factors of technological, organizational and human characteristics are found to have a significant effect on cloud computing implementation.

La présente étude s’est intéressée à l’analyse des déterminants de la diffusion des technologies agricoles vulgari- sées au travers des messages vidéo au cours des formations, en se basant sur le cas des femmes transformatrices de soja en fromages. La vidéo choisie présente les bonnes pratiques de transformation de soja en fromages. Au total, 360 femmes transformatrices préalablement exposées à la vidéo ont été enquêtées dans six communes réparties dans le nord et le centre du Bénin. Les données ont été collectées sur les perceptions des femmes sur les caractéristiques de forme et de contenu de la vidéo de même que sur la diffusion des messages de la vidéo. Les résultats de la régression logistique binaire ont montré que la diffusion des messages vidéo est affectée positivement par les caractéristiques de contenu de la vidéo telles que la per- ception que la technologie visualisée dans la vidéo permet de satisfaire le besoin de qualité exprimé par la clientèle et la perception que la technologie est facile à comprendre et à utiliser. Ces résultats suggèrent que la vidéo démontre une capacité de simplification de la technologie, stimulant sa diffusion. L’expansion de l’utilisation de la vidéo dans le système de vul- garisation agricole est recommandée. Mots clés : Diffusion d’innovations ; Vidéos ; Transformation agro-alimentaire ; Soja ; Bénin.
... Costs of acquisition and integration of technology Costs related to the acquisition and integration of a technology can impede its adoption by SMEs (Oh et al., 2012;Kim, 2011). Indeed, it is argued in the literature that if most costs and fees related to adoption are high, the risk of adoption increases, and therefore decisions-makers in companies are less likely to adopt this technology. ...
