From IS to Organisation: Analysing the Uses of a Collaborative IS in a High-tech SME

Ewan Oiry, Amandine Pascal, Robert Tchobanian

Abstract

Researchers and practitioners generally observe a disparity in organisations between the actual uses of HRIS and what was expected of them prior to implementation [1]. In order to investigate this phenomenon, [7] develops a coherent and structured conceptual framework that can be used to analyse the reasons why actors develop such different uses for a given technology. While our paper uses her theoretical propositions as a framework for analysing uses, it seeks to extend her approach by means of a theoretical framework that can be used to understand the spirit of the technology and interactions between individuals and artefacts. Following an outline of these various concepts (2.), a case study of the uses of a collaborative IS in a high- tech SME (3.) will serve as a basis for an initial test of this analytical framework (4.) and discussing the contributions it makes (5.).
