Part of the SpringerBriefs in Electrical and Computer Engineering book series (BRIEFSELECTRIC)


In this chapter influential factors that concluded from papers reviewed in Chap. 2 will be investigated as the initial findings of this study. Then the theoretical framework and hypotheses will be proposed in continuation. Afterwards, pilot study will be performed. Final step includes the explanation of validity and reliability of the questionnaire. Therefore, the main effort of this chapter is to test the initial study. Concluded factors from literature review of the study can guide to categorize the fundamental domain of research and will be used as primary definitions for next step of the research. In this chapter, the relationship among significant factors, SOA adoption and the impact of them on the performance of organizations are discovered.
