BIG AREA: Ciências Sociais Aplicadas

SUMMARY:

Among the Information Technologies (IT) that enable improvements in the performance of informational activities, cloud computing tools stand out. Pillars of the so-called fourth industrial revolution, these tools provide advantages such as online data storage, collaborative work, easy access and information sharing. However, even in view of the potential benefits and other possibilities arising from the use of this technology, it is still not completely clear how these tools are accepted and used by individuals. Such gap is also present in the work context of educational institutions, causing organizational efforts and resources to be wasted and promising technologies for service improvement to be unusable. Having that, this research aims to analyze the acceptance and use of cloud computing in the performance of informational and knowledge activities among technical-administrative officers of Postgraduate departments at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN), aiming at preparing a proposal to strengthen the use and acceptance of the identified tools. The methodological approach to be used is based on a quantitative and descriptive approach. As a research strategy, a survey will be carried out, through the application of a questionnaire with closed questions, based on the Acceptance and Use of Integrated Technology Model, TAM 3, in addition to sociodemographic questions, applied to the UFRN Postgraduate Secretaries in order to capture their perceptions regarding the use and acceptance of cloud computing tools. Data analysis will be carried out with descriptive statistics, using measures of central tendency and dispersion, as well as percentages, in order to deal with quantitative aspects, and tables and graphs to present them. As expected results, the aim is to objectively assess the degree of acceptance and use of cloud computing tools in the work context of the Postgraduate secretary, checking the types of tools used, the forms of use, and, along with the theoretical basis, to answer whether the usual use of said technology makes access to information more democratic, thus facilitating Information and Knowledge Management among officers. Also as a result, it is expected to develop a plan to strengthen the use and acceptance of cloud computing tools, aiming to help structure the excellence of Postgraduate programs.
