  • Vision 2030 of Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (CERPS) in the
           Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

    • Authors: Nooradeen Adel AlGhazzawi, Nouf Essam Katooa
      First page: 1
      Abstract: Saudi businesses rely on effective data management to trade along their internal and external supply (value) chains and must continually monitor and upgrade legacy data systems. To understand these processes, this study explores the experiences of six diverse Saudi firms as case studies: an air transport data system, vertical integration of global firms' subsidiaries, a value chain system, and entrepreneurs taking advantage of cloud opportunities. Rather than following the literature in focusing on the decision making steps to upgrade organizational data-based resources, this research considers how the firms integrated cloud technologies with their existing or new business models. The case studies were conducted post-implementation of cloud data projects to qualitatively assess the expectations of owners and executives of firms from their initiatives.Overall, the findings were that firms' experiences when online resulted in better integration with upstream international suppliers, greater cost control, and adapted and new business model advantages. Of the cases, two retailers and an intermediary/retail stationer used their new cloud-based data resources by expanding to online sales platforms. The largest firm was able to use its industry leadership to develop online data integration with firms through its value chains. The remaining firms were more circumspect. The data infrastructure firm merely formed a cloud sibling company to enhance its core business. The airline's industry data provider moved all its clients to cloud services, and the wholesaler similarly agreed to contract with its value chain's digital provider.This paper is presented as an introduction including the purpose of the study, a short literature review, methodology, results, comparative analysis, and conclusions. There was insufficient opportunity to provide a detailed discussion placing the cases into previous findings, although this empirical study is focussed on cloud migration outcomes rather than change factors.

  • The Influence of University Teachers' Scientific Research Pressure on
           Scientific Research Performance, Job Satisfaction, Mediation and
           Adjustment of Emotional Intelligence

    • Authors: Wei Guorong
      First page: 20
      Abstract: How the research pressure of university teachers affects scientific research performance is an important issue in the current development of university teachers and scientific research management. On the basis of literature research, the relationship between job satisfaction and emotional intelligence as intermediaries and adjustment variables was introduced into the relationship between scientific research pressure and scientific research performance, and empirical research was conducted in the form of questionnaires. The following conclusions were drawn: Higher research pressure; scientific research pressure will have a certain negative impact on scientific research performance; scientific research pressure affects scientific research performance through job satisfaction intermediary; emotional intelligence can effectively positively regulate the impact of scientific research pressure on scientific research performance. On this basis, it puts forward some countermeasures to reduce stress sources, optimize scientific research and assessment system, improve salary and treatment, and cultivate emotional intelligence.

  • Resource Allocation and Management Innovation among Entrepreneurs in South
           Sudan: A Case Study of Small and Medium Enterprises in Juba City

    • Authors: Arok Dut Arok, Dorothy Kirimi, Jane Munga
      First page: 33
      Abstract: Management innovation among SMEs in South Sudan has been termed as low despite the high failure rate of the enterprises. This is despite the argument that management innovation enhances survival rate of enterprises and creates competitive advantage. This therefore triggered an investigation to find out if allocation of resources influences management innovation. The study population consisted of all the small and medium enterprises operating in Juba City which were 12,654 in total. The study adopted descriptive research design. A sample size of 96 SMEs was determined using Cochran formula. Primary data was collected using a self-administered questionnaire. The questionnaire was structured, having only closed-ended questions. The collected data was analysed through quantitative methods of descriptive and inferential statistics such as correlation and univariate regression model. The tool used was Statistical Package for Social Sciences version 24. The study established that resource allocation has a positive and significant effect on management innovation of SMEs in Juba City. The recommendations of the study were that SMEs in Juba City should enhance their resource allocation practices such as encouraging innovative behavior to promote management innovation, measuring performance against subjective strategic criteria such as progress on product innovations and investing in technological resources such as IT infrastructure in order to enhance the rate of management innovation.

  • Seeking Happiness through Materialism, Gratitude and Life Satisfaction:
           Evidence from Pakistani Employees, with the Mediatory Role of Feeling

    • Authors: Misbah -, Danish Ahmed Siddiqui
      First page: 49
      Abstract: This research paper proposed a theoretical framework that focused on the link between materialism and dissatisfaction with life. Through modifying J. A. Roberts (2015) model, we proposed that Seeking Happiness through Materialism is associated with positive or negative feeling experiences, and these experiences produce an effect on one’s life satisfaction. Furthermore, we also explored bi-directional impact of gratitude and materialism in two models. In first model, the effect of materialism and life satisfaction was explored with the mediating role of gratitude and feeling experiences, whereas, in second model, the impact of gratitude on life satisfaction was analyzed with the mediation of materialism and experiences. The link was empirically established by collecting the data on 205 employees working in different sectors and professions in Pakistan. Data was collected by means of close ended questionnaire and was analyzed using Confirmatory Factor Analysis and Structure Equation Modeling. The results showed a significant effect of materialism in employee’s life satisfaction and gratitude plays a mediating role. The negative relationship between materialism and life satisfaction among employees indicated as materialism increased satisfaction with life decrease. This was experience directly and through the mediation of feeling experiences. Moreover, Materialism negatively affected gratitude. In the second model, Employees having either high gratitude shows less materialism and positive feeling effect, whereas, employees having low gratitude shows high negative feeling effect because they are seeking happiness through material things. Additionally, those employees who are able to appreciate what they have, are happier and enjoying their life. Thus, feelings, gratitude, and materialism are crucial factors influencing employee’s life satisfaction either positively or negatively.
