E-performance of Turkey and a new e-transformation metric system

Afacan, Gülgün
Affected by continuous developments and innovations in information and communication technologies, governments have initiated the e-transformation process to adopt the knowledge based economy and to be competitive in global world. Throughout their journey of e-transformation, governments need to learn where they are in order to shift their position to advanced level. To assist governments in their evaluation of e-transformation, this thesis offers a metric system derived from some of the well known e-government evaluation studies. The system proposed is composed of metrics distributed into six main categories: “Technology Infrastructure”, “e-Society”, “Human Capital”, “Political and Regulatory Environment”, “Economy Environment”, and “Online Services and Applications”. Set of metrics to be attached in these categories are determined in terms of widely recognized measures of the tools reviewed. In order to implement the system, 30 countries are analyzed gathering data published by major research institutions. Additionally, this thesis examines Turkey’s level on e-transformation from the perspectives of e-government evaluation studies reviewed.


E-government adoption model based on theory of planned behavior: empirical investigation
Kanat, İrfan Emrah; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Department of Information Systems (2009)
The e-government phenomena has become more important with the ever increasing number of implementations world wide. A model explaining the e-government adoption and the related measurement instrument a survey had been developed and validated in this study. In a post technology acceptance model (TAM) approach, theory of planned behavior (TPB) was extended to t the requirements of e-government context. The adoption of student loans service of the higher education student loans and accommodation association...
Assessing hospital information systems processes: a validation of prise information systems success model in healthcare
Ozkan, Sevgi; Baykal, Nazife; Sincan, Murat (null; 2008-12-01)
Although there is limited research and evidence base, it is reasonable to expect that high quality information technology is an integral factor in the success of today’s health care sector. However, the health care sector is considered to be low level investor in Information Technology (IT) when compared to other sectors. There are studies that look at the sums spent on health IT as a basis for determining how effective the IT systems are. We support the idea that the effectiveness of IT systems, is not an ...
Analysis of electronic signature in Turkey from the legal and economic perspectives and the awareness level in the country
İskender, Gökhan; Koçyiğit, Altan; Department of Information Systems (2006)
As in the case of other information technologies, the best way of obtaining efficient results from electronic signature application is integrating it to the legal and economic systems and increasing the awareness level of technology in the society. This thesis performs the legal and economic analyses of electronic signature in Turkey and measures the awareness level in the society. The analyses performed in the thesis show that electronic signature is not legally established in Turkey even the legal base is...
Towards learning affordances : detection of relevant features and characteristics for reachability
Eren, Selda; Şahin, Erol; Department of Information Systems (2006)
In this thesis, we reviewed the affordance concept for autonomous robot control and proposed that invariant features of objects that support a specific affordance can be learned. We used a physics-based robot simulator to study the reachability affordance on the simulated KURT3D robot model. We proposed that, through training, the values of each feature can be split into strips, which can then be used to detect the relevant features and their characteristics. Our analysis showed that it is possible to achie...
Adoption and utilization of information systems in an emerging Turkish industrial rown : a case study on Gaziantep
Salihoğlu, Yasemin; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Information Systems (2003)
This thesis analyzes factors motivating and inhibiting the adoption of information systems in enterprises in Gaziantep by a scale generated on Rogers̕ theory of diffusion of innovation. These factors are grouped into four as administrative, technological, environmental, and organizational characteristics in the scale built. Structured interview method was used while collecting the data. It was interviewed with 20 firms, operating in various sectors in Gaziantep. Results of the study showed that, within the ...
