Abstract in another language

Owing to the current era’s rapid surge in information technology, new technologies constantly replace those that are being used. Users often start using new technologies, often in parallel to existing solutions, if the new technology seems to be an improvement on the old one. Users must then decide whether they want to switch to new technologies or retain the already established ones. The term “technology transition” refers to the act of moving from one technology to another. In this paper we give a summary on the development of our research model for explaining technology transition. We base the model on the theory of reasoned action and the theory of planned behavior, amongst others, and derive our hypotheses accordingly. By focusing on the individual perspective, we intend to enlarge our understanding of the psychological and social factors that influence technology transition. The theoretical explanation and empirical evidence that we put forward are expected to extend the previous contributions in this field of research and to provide new insights for practitioners.
