Factors influencing IT investments in a selected University of Technology
The study, using a selected University of Technology (UoT) as a case study, investigated factors influencing information technology (IT) investments in adopting new technologies in University of Technologies (UoTs). The objective is to determine the benefits of IT investments in UoTs and the impact on UoT operations. Technology is constantly advancing and impacting on organisations’ decisions and how to acquire the right technology for effective administration. IT-investment decisions require unique understanding and management by organisations to properly adapt to changing technology. The research was based on the premise that the purpose of deploying new technologies in any organisation is to reduce the costs of running the organisation and to improve operational effectiveness. This would include Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). However, at most UoTs there is a slow response to adopting new technologies, making them lag behind in the deployment of such technologies.
