This quantitative predictive study explores the factors that contribute to employee adoption of consumerized information technology (CoIT). The megatrend of CoIT establishes a work anytime, anywhere capability for employees that use their personal devices for work. Many working professionals carry at least two mobile devices, one device for work and the other for personal use. CoIT offers the opportunity to integrate these mobile requirements into a single device. The literature emphasizes the benefits and problems that CoIT can bring to individuals and organizations, but there is a gap in the literature on the factors that influence the use of CoIT including the perceived usefulness and ease of use of the technology by individuals. The main research question that guides this study is: To what extent do the perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness contribute to employee adoption of CoIT? Data was collected through an online survey using the Fast Form TAM survey instrument that used the initial scales of the Technology Acceptance Model to collect the data from 116 adult survey participants, aged 18 years and older that resided in the United States. The data was analyzed and the hypotheses were tested using partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM). The study revealed that there was significant statistical evidence that the effects of the perceived usefulness and the perceived ease of use do predict employee adoption of CoIT.
