Abstract [en]

Findings of this research work provide clear understanding of why organizational technology(Network technology) adoption decision makers decide to recommend or not recommend an Internet Protocol migration(adoption of the latest protocol), or a migration from Ipv4 to IPv6/ or adoption of IPv6, to their organizations. A meticulous review of literature on the practice of various organizations technology adoption process served as a base for developing relevant research questions and corresponding hypothesis. The research hypothesis was developed to examine organization‟s technology (Network technology) adoption decision maker‟s perception of IPv6: quality of service, auto configuration capability, security, mobility, address abundance and cost effectiveness and its effect on their decision. The study result indicated that network expert‟s decision to recommend a new network technology adoption, specifically, internet protocol migration from IPv4 to IPv6 is highly influenced by their perception of the factors listed in the previous paragraph, therefore network expert‟s perception of the aforementioned factors are instrumental for their decision of recommending whether to encourage the internet protocol migration. It is also implied that managers at top level can make a technology adoption or migration decision based on the recommendation from the experts already knowing that their decision is highly influenced by their perception of capabilities and functionality of the new IP (IPv6). In addition to the apparent contribution of this study to organizations that fall in to the category of organization, where this study was conducted, the result of this study also helps different organizations engaged in other kinds of business activity, such as: network infrastructure manufacturers and application developers by providing essential information regarding which functionalities and capabilities are playing a major role for organization‟s choice for a certain network infrastructure.
