The Motivations for Campus Portals Adoption in Saudi Government Universities

In Saudi Arabia, due to the solidity of the economic sector, the government has come up with a long plan to support the portalisation in many public and private organisations in order to such as improving the effectiveness and efficiency of administrative processes, improving support for decision making, eliminating bureaucracy, and improving quality of services whilst reducing operational costs. Many government universities in Saudi Arabia have advocated to this trend in developing their campus portals. However, the literature is still missed out the exploration of different motivation factors for campus portals adoption in Saudi government universities. The empirical evident, from the qualitative multiple-case study approach conducted in this study, revealed eight different motivation factors for campus portals adoption in Saudi government universities such as organisational, technological, educational, user expectations, geographic and administrative motivation, economic and environmental factors. While the results of this study can address the gap in knowledge in this regards, it is thought that the outcome of this research can also provide the decision makers in Saudi universities with better understanding of the issues surrounding the campus portals to better develop suitable strategy for adoption interventions.
