There has been immense focal point on the adaptation of web based engineerings particularly by the commercial sectors for their concern environment, from the development of the World Wide Web. Since 1990s, ICT is playing critical function in hiking up the alteration and switching traditional authorities theoretical accounts into its current form e-government theoretical account, where clients are satisfied by presenting the services harmonizing to their demands.

Many states are now toward altering their current traditional authorities processes into

E-enabled province and some of them are already transformed into e-government where chief services are delivered on-line by utilizing cyberspace. Dubai is no exclusion ; the authorities of Dubai has launched many enterprises under the umbrella of e-government in order to do public services easy approachable and more accessible by people and concern. One of the cardinal enterprises is nomadic parking ( mParking ) construct offered by the authorities of Dubai to its people and implemented about in all public parking. The mParking service provides the automobilist to direct SMS to Etisalat or du figure and receive verification immediately for the parking in any clip of twenty-four hours ( 24/7/365 ) .

The first such enterprises were launched in January 2008 in the metropolis of Sharjah and it was foremost of its sort in the Arab states ( ameinfo, 2008 ) . This study will explorer motorist credence of mParking service as a portion of Dubai e-government enterprise.

As in several states, the e-government of Dubai focal point in accomplishing a practical authorities by supplying high quality client focused eServices for concern, authorities and single, and to advance eServices credence by the client direction ( Duabi e-government, 2010 ) .

Dubai authorities is ever pioneer in following and developing the latest engineering for many old ages. There is more and more authorities dependence on the engineering for offering services to the populace. Different authorities sections in Dubai are viing with each other to offer province of the art technological services.

Among one of these authorities section which offers such types of services is the Roads and Transport Authority ( RTA ) . In May 2009 RTA launched its first nomadic payment services for the parking license called mParking.

This service allows automobilists to pay their practical parking license by merely directing SMS to pre-defined figure. This will extinguish the demand to walk to the payment show machines and hunt for coins to pay for the service. It besides alerts the automobilist via an SMS prior to practical license termination and if needed the automobilist can widen his/her parking period from his/her office or place without holding to walk to his/her vehicle. The chief benefit of this service is to cut down fuss and the concern about staying parking clip by widening the period.

1.1 Problem Statement

One of the go oning issues of Information System is that of placing factors that cause people to accept and do usage of systems developed and implemented by others. Over the decennaries, assorted theories and attacks have been put away to turn to this job. ( King & A ; He, 2006 )

There is no research done in the country of user credence for the nomadic parking payment ( mParking ) in Dubai utilizing Technology Acceptance Model ( TAM ) . The aim of this paper, therefore, is to look into in a quantitative mode how people look at and finally use mParking service today in Dubai.

1.2 Purpose of Study

The intent of this survey is to measure motorist credence and usage of their nomadic phone for publishing parking license. Mobile parking ( mParking ) is one of Dubai ‘s e-government Mobile applications and this survey examines cellular m-payment- utilizing nomadic device and related services, particularly SMS messaging, enabling consumer to buy ( Dewan & A ; Chen 2005 ) .

Other signifiers of nomadic payment exist apart from old one, either by utilizing other devices like RFID ticket, propinquity contact cards, laptop computing machine on radio web or for other intents like measure payment by nomadic phone, person-to-person Mobile banking, but these signifiers are non considered in the current survey. However, our chief focal point of this research is to analyze m-parking in Dubai.

1.3 Mobile Services in Dubai

With the UAE holding the highest nomadic phone endorsers in the universe Dubai eGovernment has created many nomadic solutions including two nomadic payment gateways, a dedicated nomadic portal and a nomadic SMS gateway.

Below are the services that are provided by Dubai eGovernment and authorities sections and can be accessed through nomadic phones.

1.3.1 mPay

mPay is an exigency payment gateway developed by Dubai eGovernment peculiarly to be used in state of affairss where users have to do exigency payment of mulcts or fees for a continued service or charges to avoid a new mulct. This service can be used to add financess to a Salik history, wage traffic mulcts or DEWA measures. Users must register foremost with their recognition card inside informations enabling payments limited to fixed sums of AED 50, AED 100 and AED 200 to be withdrawn. ( Dubai Government, 2010 )

1.3.2 mParking

RTA ‘s mParking service is a new value-added service that allows automobilists to pay for their parking utilizing their Etisalat and Du nomadic phones by merely directing an SMS in a pre-defined format to 7275 therefore extinguishing the demand to walk to the Payment Display machines and hunt for coins. The mParking service besides alerts the automobilist via an SMS prior to allow termination and if needed the automobilist can widen his/her parking period from his/her office or place without holding to walk to the vehicle. ( Dubai Government, 2010 )

1.3.3 mDubai SMS Gateway

mDubai is a bipartisan communicating channel between Dubai authorities sections and their clients. Designed for sole usage inside the UAE, mDubai plants in two waies: SMS Push and SMS Pull. The Push service allows Government sections to direct dealing information to the client through SMS. It can besides be used by the section to direct public proclamations about its services and activities. The Pull service enables a client to ask about his/her dealing or a service by directing an Samarium with a keyword and a parametric quantity to the section concerned on 4488. Examples of the Pull service include flight reachings and goings at Dubai International Airport from Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, traffic mulcts enquiry from Dubai Police, misdemeanor question from Department of Economic Development, and supplication timings enquiry from Islamic Affairs & A ; Charitable Activities Department. ( Dubai Government, 2010 )

1.4 Objectives & A ; Scope

There are many E-services/Mobile-Services late launched by Dubai E-Government. Our range for this survey is the nomadic parking services launched by RTA.

To supply a few practical guidelines and recommendations for effectual and efficient application of m-parking by the drivers.

The primary aim is to place the factors that can foretell the purpose to utilize mParking service and to widen the TAM theoretical account, while retaining its parsimoniousness and IS focal point in the context of nomadic services. The purpose is to increase our apprehension of consumer credence of nomadic services. Based on the literature sing the TPB and the TAM, this survey extends the TAM ‘s pertinence to the context of nomadic services, by adding three excess concepts ( “ Gender ” , “ Age ” and “ Education ” ) to the theoretical account, with careful attending to the placing of these concepts within the TAM ‘s bing nomological construction. An of import end of this work is to develop a theoretical account that can supply utile information to mobile services practicians, while at the same clip keeping the TAM ‘s theoretical construction. By explicating users ‘ purposes from a user ‘s position, the findings of this research can non merely help mobile services governments develop a more user-accepted m-commerce services system, but can besides supply penetration into the best manner to advance new IT systems to possible users. Overall, this survey examines what determines users to follow ( new ) engineering of nomadic commercialism services. In general, the aim of this research is to find users ‘ perceptual experience and purpose towards utilizing nomadic commercialism services.

1.5 Research Question and Hypothesis

Based on our job statement below is the research inquiry:

What are the cardinal factors that influence or restrict the acceptance of mParking service in Dubai?

Along with research inquiry we are suggesting the undermentioned research hypotheses in ( Table-2 ) to analyze the acceptance of the m-Parking enterprise by automobilists in Dubai. These hypotheses are based on research inquiries and we are traveling to utilize TAM theory to see the factors that drive automobilist ‘s purpose to utilize the M-Parking service in Dubai.

We have extended the TAM theoretical account to include three other relevant concepts, Age, gender, and makings. Therefore, we hypothesize that purpose to utilize M-Parking is influenced by gender, makings, perceived usefulness, sensed easiness of usage and Age ( fig 5 ) . This paper will prove the strength of the hypothesized relationships mentioned in the theoretical theoretical account outlined in ( Table 1 ) and the rightness of the theoretical account in foretelling users ‘ purpose to utilize M-Parking in Dubai. ( Al-Shafi & A ; Weerakkody, 2008 )

Literature Review

2.1 Theoretical Model

Research workers in the field of Information Systems and Information Technology have for long been interested in look intoing the theories and theoretical accounts that have the power in predicting and explicating behavior ( Venkatesh, Morris, Davis, & A ; Davis, 2003 ) . For illustration these theories and theoretical accounts include, Theory of Reasoned Action ( TRA ) , Theory of Planned Behaviour ( TPB ) ( Figure 1 ) , Innovation Diffusion Theory ( IDT ) ( Rogers, 1995 ) , Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology ( UTAUT ) , and Technology Acceptance Model ( TAM ) ( Venkatesh, Morris, Davis, & A ; Davis, 2003 ) .

TAM has been expanded by Vekatesh et Al. ( 2003 ) in their Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology ( UTAUT ) . The new theoretical account incorporates eight of the most well-known credence theoretical accounts, including TAM. The old surveies have validated that UTAUT does non look to be merely adapted to mobile payments. The theoretical account is best to be used as a measuring for engineering credence in companies. Two of its six variables to a great extent rely on the engineering being introduced in an organisation. Some of the standards recommended to mensurate ‘social influence ‘ include aid of the organisational support, and senior direction for the new engineering. ‘Voluntariness of usage ‘ steps whether engineering is required for the occupation, to what degree it is required by the foreman, or expected by the supervisors. As nomadic payments stay in the day-to-day life sphere, it seems more appropriate utilizing TAM theoretical account to foretell user credence in this field. ( Zmijewska et al, 2004 ) .

TAM was developed in the 1980 ‘s ( Davis et al, 1989 ) . Its conceivers adapted the Theory of Reasoned Action ( TRA ) , a general social-psychological/behavioral theory. TAM is a theory that has gone through a figure of alterations. For illustration, an update called TAM2 ( Figure 3 )

TAM2 besides added a variable meant to capture the societal influence ( e.g. , from co-workers or foremans ) that compels terminal users to positively measure and accept IT, called subjective norm ( SN ) . Even more late, an impressive attempt to unite the IT credence literature resulted in the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology ( UTAUT ) , a theory with obvious resemblance to TAM. UTAUT ( Figure 4 ) incorporates PU into a public presentation anticipation concept, PEOU into attempt anticipation, and SN into societal influence.

Finally, some surveies use early psychological theoretical accounts of behaviour on which TAM was originally based.

2.2 Current Methods of Parking in Dubai

Current parking payment methods available today in Dubai are as follows: the parking metre, limited period cards, wage and show machines and RTA ‘s license parking. Each of the current method has at least one major drawback ( either for the parking governments and/or for the drivers ) . Below is a description of each parking method:

2.2.1 Parking Meters

Parking metres refer to coin-based machines that register the purchased sum of clip for the parking for the auto, when the clip is finished the frogman will be apt for a all right. The advantages that the driver is non pay dual sum in progress. Meters are convenient for parking inspectors to look into since the metre is either in usage in which instance the metre shows the postpaid clip staying, or it has expired. However, there are many disadvantages to metres: The driver needs to fix little alteration or hard currency in progress, which means that they have to foretell in progress how long they will be parked. The usage of parking metres normally involves over payments by the driver, since there is by and large a minimal payment required, and drivers will normally overrate the sum of clip they will be parked so as to avoid heavy mulcts. ( Simone, 2007 ) .

2.2.2 Limited Time period Card games

Deserving Dh30, Dh50 or Dh100 could be used alternatively of coins to buy tickets from machines. These cards are available in market for Dh26, Dh43 and Dh85 severally ( Ahmed, 2010 ) .

2.2.3 Pay and Display Machine

When utilizing Pay and Display machines, the driver have to walk to the metre, insert coins, recognition cards, or smart cards doing the payment ( a few of these machines allow payment by nomadic phone ) until the coveted sum of clip is purchased. Once the coveted clip is purchased, a button is pressed and a reception will be printed. That reception must so be displayed on the splashboard of the auto. Like metres, there is no big spending of money in progress by the driver when utilizing Pay and Display machines. Today assorted payment options are available, which makes these machines more convenient and easier to utilize. However, the driver needs to pay in progress, which means that they have to foretell how long they will be parked. This parking payment method normally involves over payments by the driver, since there is by and large a minimal payment required, and drivers will frequently overrate the sum of clip they will be parked so as to avoid heavy mulcts. These machines offer no possibility for distant extension of parking clip, and one time paid, the driver needs to return to the auto in order to put the ticket on the splashboard. ( Simone, 2007 ) .

2.2.4 RTA Permit Parking

RTA issues one-year, six-month or three-month licenses that can be used to park in peculiar types of parking infinites. An one-year base on balls worth Dh2, 500 can be availed to park in all the paid parking zones ( Ahmed, 2010 ) .

2.2.4 Mobile Parking

M-Parking is the latest manner of payment for parking, paying through nomadic SMS. ( Ahmed, 2010 ) .

2.3 How M-Parking Plants

Once the driver parked his auto in parking zone, he have to direct an SMS to parking authorization including the auto figure, parking zone codification and needed period for parking. However the same process can be used for extension.

The charge will change from 30 fils ( Etisalat ) or 18 fils ( du ) in add-on to parking fee and will be billed to the several nomadic phone history. Driver so will have an SMS corroborating completion of the procedure ; which acts as a practical parking license including the inside informations of utilizing the parking. ( RTA, 2009 )

Chapter 3


The methods and procedural stairss conducted for this research are discussed under the subdivision. The type of probe is causal as it is purpose of the survey is to happen the cause and consequence of automobilist purpose to utilize mParking. While the general intent of the survey is explanatory ( Hypothesis Testing ) , the best suitable signifier of survey scene is the non-contrived type because the research is being done on a subject that is natural and accepted.

An online, self-administered questionnaire was used in this survey. The study method is appropriate for this survey as it provides a quantitative description of attitudes, experiences and sentiments of the sample population ( Creswell 2003 ) . garnering informations utilizing standard set of inquiry is an efficient manner. The mark population was some automobilists in Dubai. The Web-based study was available during November and December 2010 and was published by Google Docs.

3.1 Sample

Our sample for this survey will be from Dubai. A group of female and male from different ages and different nationalities.

3.2 Data Collection

The lone beginnings of published information about mParking are RTA web site and some publications. Despite their significance, these publications do non supply an overall image of the current mParking construct and its usage by automobilist in equal deepness. The intent of this research is to look into the current province of the RTA mParking enterprise and to analyze its credence from a automobilist position. To research the statement set out above and understand the context of the mParking enterprise in Dubai, Likert Scale Questions were conducted. These inquiry type provided the context to explicate a elaborate questionnaire that was to be used to look into the automobilist perceptual experiences to utilize mParking in Dubai.

Inexpensive, less clip consuming and has the ability to supply both quantitative graduated table and qualitative informations from a big research sample a study questionnaire attack has been selected ( Cornford et al, 1997 ) .The questionnaire used Likert scale type inquiries ( 5-point graduated table ) , which were easier and quicker to reply by the respondents ( Saunders et al. , 2002 ) .

3.3 Data Analysis

The proposed research theoretical account consists of five independent variables, gender, instruction, and usefulness, easiness of usage, age and one dependant variable, purpose to utilize.

To look into the responses of these inquiries, the first phase consisted of look intoing the responses and labeling them with a alone figure. The writer generated the descriptive statistics ( per centum and tabular arraies ) and used Linear Regression analysis by using SPSS ( Version 15.0 ) . Descriptive information analysis provides the reader with an grasp of the existent Numberss and values, and therefore the graduated table that research workers are covering with ( Dwivedi and Weerakkody, 2007 ) .

3.4 Restrictions

The survey, as other research, has a figure of restrictions. First, the attack chosen for the methodological analysis was a quantitative information analysis based on sample responses from Dubai merely. Inclusion of samples from more emirates would be more representative of the population. Second, in the epoch of nomadic communicating engineering the impact of the societal community is immense and it is obvious that societal norms or other people ‘s influence may play an of import function in persons ‘ purpose to utilize any new services. Sing that some TAM as shown in some TAM surveies ( e.g. , Venkatesh & A ; Davis, 2000 ) employed subjective norms as another of import determiner for engineering credence, it would be worthwhile in future surveies researching the impact of societal influence in the context of nomadic parking and look intoing user purpose to utilize the M-Parking construct in Dubai.

Contributions of Knowledge

The consequences of this survey will lend to the cognition of nomadic parking acceptance by the populace. It can assist RTA to better understand the public purpose to utilize their services. Other research with greater sample size can besides assist other section which be aftering to offer same service.

The findings of this survey supply a good footing for industry developing a service rating model to find the acceptance potency of new nomadic services. The modified TAM theoretical account used in this survey seems good suited for developing such a model for services that are adopted for functional grounds and services that are directed specifically at advanced user attitudes. Therefore, the present survey purposes to obtain penetrations into the factors that can act upon the acceptance of mParking services among automobilist in Dubai. It is hoped that the consequences of this survey will widen current cognition on engineering credence in mcommerce services. Furthermore, the survey may supply deeper penetrations into what is needed in order for users to accept this emerging engineering and, therefore, let for betterment in nomadic service supplier ‘s schemes to pull possible users of mcommerce services. With accelerated concern competition and the popularity of Internet and nomadic device usage, there is an pressing demand to understand the factors that would lure users to utilize m-commerce. Groking the necessities of what determines user ‘s m-commerce credence can supply great direction penetration into developing effectual schemes that will let endeavors to stay competitory and keep their market. Hence, we adopted the drawn-out engineering credence theoretical account ( TAM2 ) , integrated it with perceived hazard and validated the factors that determine consumer m-commerce credence.

Research Findingss

4.1 Respondent ‘s Profile:

Of the 40 completed questionnaires that were returned, one questionnaire was discarded ( because the respondent gave more than one reply to a inquiry that expected merely one reply ) and many inquiries were unreciprocated. This meant that the concluding sample of 37 questionnaires was used for all subsequent analysis. Of these 37 useable respondents 11 ( 30 % ) were females while 26 ( 70 % ) were males figure ( 6 ) . Besides, of the 37 respondents, 31 ( 84 % ) usage ‘s Etisalat as Mobile operator, 6 ( 16 % ) usage ‘s Du as nomadic operator figure ( 7 ) . 18 ( 49 % ) of respondents send ‘s 1 or none SMS per twenty-four hours, while 13 ( 35 % ) send ‘s ( 2 to 5 ) SMS per twenty-four hours, and 6 ( 16 % ) send ‘s ( more so 5 ) SMS per twenty-four hours figure ( 8 ) . Out of these 37 useable respondents 15 ( 41 % ) prefers mParking method for buying parking tickets, while 19 ( 51 % ) prefers Meter Parking method for buying parking tickets, and 3 ( 8 % ) prefers other methods for buying parking tickets figure ( 9 ) . This average automobilist still non satisfied or non cognizant of mParking method.

When analyzing the ‘ease of usage ‘ of mParking services, 93 % of the respondents mentioned that they found the service was easy for them, while 7 % thought otherwise. Additionally, 76 % of the respondents found that their interactions with the usage of the free cyberspace park service were clear and apprehensible and merely ( 24 % ) disagreed with this position.

In context of age, the consequences shown that the bulk of respondents ( 49 % ) were found in the age group of 27-35, followed by the age group of 36-44 representing around ( 27 % ) of the entire respondents. In contrast, the younger groups 18-26 and older age groups ( 45-53 ) and more consisted together of ( 24 % ) of the entire respondents figure ( 10 ) .

Equally far as instruction is concerned, the bulk of respondents ( 65 % ) clasp unmarried man grade, and ( 32 % ) clasp station alumnus degree makings and 3 % hold high school certifications, with no respondents less than high school or non-educated figure ( 11 ) . This indicates the instruction degree is high in UAE and in the coming old ages about all people will be holding high grade.

4.2 Arrested development Analysis: Factors Influencing the Purpose to Use Parking:

A arrested development analysis was conducted with the usage of mParking service as dependent variable and gender, making, perceived easiness of usage and sensed utility as forecaster variables. From a sum of 37 instances that were analyzed a important theoretical account emerged { F ( 5, 37 ) = 42.328, P & lt ; .001 } ( Table-4 ) . The 2nd important statistic that was obtained from the analysis is the RA? , which ranges from 0 to 1, with 1 being a perfect fit theoretical account. It was found that RA?= 0.872 for this analysis. This factor explains 41 % of the alterations in the purpose to utilize mParking. Other unidentified factors account for the staying 59 % . The RA? of 41 ( 41 % ) is considered as a good value for a cross-sectional information affecting many forecaster variables.

Chapter 5


This survey examined TAM utilizing motorist credence of mParking service. Overall, TAM was partly supported. Based on informations collected from 37 automobilists, the public-service corporation of TAM for explicating credence of mParking service by automobilists is evaluated. Consequences showed that sensed utility is more of import in finding purpose to utilize than attitude toward utilizing. In understanding with what TAM postulates, perceived utility was found to hold a important influence on automobilists purpose to utilize the service, that is, it is in conformity with Davis ( 1989 ) who found attitude toward utilizing was at best a partial go-between of the consequence of sensed utility on purpose to utilize, and that it added small causal explanatory power. An account might be that automobilists are willing to follow good applications of e-government, and this may propose that motorist tend to concentrate on the utility of the engineering itself. In this context, supplying proper user preparation is indispensable for directing and solidifying automobilists ‘ perceptual experience of the utility of the engineering. Furthermore, perceived usefulness and sensed easiness of usage were besides found to hold a important consequence on attitude towards utilizing the service. Contrary to what TAM hypothesizes, attitude was found to hold no consequence on purpose to utilize. These might reflect restrictions of TAM ‘s pertinence with regard to engineerings, user populations, or both. Tam appears to miss equal specificity to explicate and pronounce attitude and purpose of automobilists. The consequences of this survey show that TAM can be used to explicate the automobilists credence of mParking service.

Decision and Recommendations

This survey represents research in analyzing the pertinence of TAM to explicating automobilists ‘ credence of the mParking service. The theoretical account was evaluated utilizing informations collected 37 automobilists remaining and working in Dubai. Several deductions can be drawn from the findings of the survey. First, an of import part is the usage of a leading intention-based theoretical account in an e-government context, which differs well from the one metropolis to another. From our position, the findings of this survey reveal that, in order to further motorist purpose to utilize a service or engineering, positive perceptual experience of the service ‘s or engineering ‘s utility is critical, whereas the automobilists ‘ attitude toward utilizing the service may non be every bit of import. Educating and consciousness plans about mParking service demand to concentrate chiefly on how the service or engineering can assist better the efficiency and effectivity of automobilists ‘ buying parking ticket procedure instead than on the processs of existent usage of the service or engineering. In decision, TAM is non a descriptive theoretical account, that is, it does non supply diagnostic capableness for specific defects in engineering, and it can function the intent of measuring and foretelling engineering acceptableness.

Our analysis indicates two recommendations. First, to spread out the theoretical cogency of the literature, redirect examination of TAM with another metropolis or user population and different information engineering ( IT ) application will be of import. Second, the survey did non prove a full TAM. Actual engineering usage was non included in the research theoretical account. Continued surveies that incorporate existent engineering usage into the research theoretical account would enable an progressively complete scrutiny of the pertinence of TAM in explicating or predicted IT credence by automobilists. Second, future surveies should besides non be limited by the original TAM. Davis ( 1993 ) suggested extra factors to be included in the original TAM such as anterior use, user experiences, and user features. Consequently, future surveies should look into the function of adding such variables to those originally used in the theoretical account.
