Abstract

Apple released the first iPad in 2010, and since then various operating systems have emerged. Many corporations have adopted the use of tablets in efforts toward organizational innovation. Innovation is the motivation for organizations to move forward and it is a key in the maintenance of their competitive advantage. The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) of Taiwan started to use the iPad 2 in 2010. In subsequent years, they wrote a new operating system for an innovative plan to input all meeting materials into the system. The present study used a technology acceptance model (TAM), and its innovativeness, to elucidate the rationale for the use of the iPad 2 by top administrators (most of who were more than 50 years of age and were conditioned to having secretaries handle the work of document processing). We also investigated the factors that predict the use of the iPad 2 in a business-meeting setting, and the acceptance of the iPad 2 by EPA participants. The results of this study revealed the following points. 1.) Innovativeness and iPad self-efficacy had a significant positive influence on each participant's perceived usefulness (PU) and perceived ease of use (PEU) of the iPad 2, as well as on its usefulness in creating a paperless meeting environment. 2.) The PEU had a significant positive influence on participants' PU of the iPad 2 in creating a paperless meeting environment. 3.) PEU and PU had a positive influence on user satisfaction. 4.) User satisfaction had a positive influence on user's will to continue using the iPad 2. (Contains 1 figure and 3 tables.)
