The global process of society information has covered almost all countries of the world and is currently the core of scientific, technical and socio-economic development. The effectiveness of the power exercise in any state depends on its information support. Indeed, without information, successful political structure, the development of mass political consciousness as well as the interaction of the subject and the object of government are impossible. That is why this research aims to improve the methodics of evaluation of informational security through theoretical-methodological substantiation, forming and calculation of integral indexes of its competitiveness of a country. Global economic crisis had consequences for almost every country and cannot be ignored by any conditions, that is why the methodic of informational security calculations should be adapted to modern economic conditions. Cardinal changes in political, economic and social conditions in Ukraine causes inaccessibility of approaches to information security level calculations and particularly in the national security system. In modern scientific schools the questions of effective informational security have not been sufficiently studied. The aim of this article is to analyze active methods of state informational safety level calculations in order to adapt their indexes to actual global circumstances in Ukraine and in the world. Integral informational security have been composed of such components (indicators): income of the broadband Internet access market, dynamics of broadband Internet subscribers (connections), penetration rate of fixed broadband access (number of subscribers per 100 people), dynamics of Internet penetration (percentage of Internet users to the total population of the country), Network Readiness Index of the country, ICT Development Index of the state, Global Innovation Index, capital investments in intangible assets of Ukraine (that is, in software and databases). Every component of informational safety has factors of relevance and indispensability of reinforcement of national competitiveness on security foundations are substantiated. A taxonomic indicator is used to measure the level of informational safety. The paper proves that each of the components of the state informational security has almost equal input in forming its integral index.

The industrial era 4.0 requires companies to radically conduct changes related to technology. This is so that the company can follow the market's everchanging appetite and is essential to maintaining the company's sustainability. The digital transformation that occurs is fundamental, changing existing procedures and arrangements and creating a new business ecosystem. In carrying out a company transformation, it requires full support and commitment from workers. And the process needs to be conducted by competent leaders, in line with the spirit of change. In this study, the relationship between transformational leadership climate and employee engagement was measured. The research was conducted on banking service companies that have made radical changes related to technology for 2 years. The results showed that the climate created by leaders who adopt transformational leadership styles has a positive and significant effect on employee engagement. This research is a preliminary study, and has limitations, including the number of samples and types of companies studied.

Despite the rare use of the term ‘strategy’ in public and voluntary sector organizations, recent research has seen the use of both the strategy and strategy-as-practice concepts in regulating the innovation perspective within the public sector. The available literature on innovation, strategy, and service delivery within the public sector offers positive insights into forming a new concept of innovation within the public organization sphere. Using a systematic review, we aim to understand the integration of the strategy-as-practice perspective into the public service ethos to drive the innovation perspective forward. The review was performed in two stages, 855 documents were retrieved in the first stage that covered a five-year time span, while 8,620,000 documents were retrieved in the second stage that covered a twenty-three-year time span. We further supported our argument through a quantitative questionnaire with 93 respondents from Kuwait. The findings of the research indicate that public sector policymakers need to pay attention to the social complexity of their context in order to innovate delivered public services. Furthermore, policymakers need to adopt new innovative schemes including innovative strategy practices, digital governance, reform ethos, and mutual constitution in their strategies in order to ensure the innovative public services that are required by their communities.

The connection between education and technology offers an exciting opportunity for universities to utilize social media marketing activities not only to recruit new students or to create brand image and reputation, but also to enhance student satisfaction. Despite having a large number of studies indicating the importance of social media as a tool for student recruitment, the studies on the importance of social media marketing activities (SMMA) for students who are already enrolled are rare. This study aims at examining the relationship between SMMA and student satisfaction, considering perceived quality as a mediator in the higher education sector in North Cyprus. Utilizing a cross-sectional online survey, the data for this study was collected during October- November 2020 from 424 international students enrolled in North Cyprus universities. The model was assessed and the data was analyzed using Structural Equation Model (SEM) in AMOS statistical software. The findings suggest that SMMA has a positive relationship with the perceived quality of education, and perceived quality mediates the relationship between SMMA and student satisfaction positively.

The growth of digital technologies has changed the way of doing financial transactions. Even though the transaction value for financial technology in 2018 grew by 24%, the financial inclusion rate in Indonesia is still low, with 64% unbanked. The aim of the study was to analyze the factors of the growing digital technology that influence customer decisions in choosing financial technology services using customer knowledge as the intervening variable. The growing digital technology is measured using social networking, regulatory services, and financial service facilities variables. The sample of this research focused on the microsegment customers located in Java Island. Statistical data are analyzed using Algorithm PLS. Results show that customer decision in choosing financial technology services was strongly influenced by customer knowledge. Customer knowledge was formed from information gathered from the social network, the formal assurance by the government, the financial service facilities, and financial inclusivity. The study recommends a need to educate, promote, and provide adequate information to increase familiarity and literacy rate with regard to financial technology. The study also recommends an urgent clear government regulation to protect the interests of customers and industries.

Technology-based education is the modern-day medium that is widely being used by teachers and their students to exchange information over applications based on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) such as Google Glass. There is still resistance shown by a few universities around the globe when it comes to shifting to the online mode of education. While few have shifted to Google Glass, others are yet to do so. We base this study to explore Google Glass Adoption in the Gulf area. We thought that introducing the teachers and students to all the pros that Google Glass presents on the table might get their attention in considering using it as the medium to exchange information in their respective institutes. This paper presents the structure of a framework depicting the association between TAM and other Influential factors. All in all, this investigation analyzes the incorporation of the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) with the major features associated with the method such as instructing and learning facilitator, functionality, and trust and information privacy to improve correspondence among facilitators and students during the learning process. A total of 420 questionnaires were collected from various universities. The data that was gathered through the surveys was employed for the analysis of the research model using the Partial least squares-structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) and machine learning models. The outcome showed that the factor of functionality and trust and privacy goes hand in hand with perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use associated with Google Glass. Both the Factors, Perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use have a significant impact on Google Glass adoption. This implies the significant impact of Perceived ease of use and Trust and privacy on the adoption of Google Glass The study also offers practical implications of outcomes for future research.

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced people to maintain physical distance during everyday contact, known in popular terms as physical distancing, which triggers the banking industry to accelerate its digital transformation to maximize service to customers. It aims to make business processes to work more efficiently and to drive force that will create various business opportunities. This study aims to explain the main factors that contribute and influence the adoption of internet and mobile banking services, which are antecedents of customer attitudes towards the intention to use these services. This study uses primary data and the unit of analysis is 200 respondents of Bank Bukopin customers who are users of its internet and mobile banking services with a replication of the technology acceptance model (TAM) in the context of internet service adoption and mobile banking. This study uses non-probability sampling with purposive sampling technique, and to analyze the research model, the Partial Least Square (PLS) method is used with the SmartPLS 3.0 M3 program as a tool. The research findings indicate that the intention to reuse is directly affected significantly by perceived ease of use, trustworthiness, and attitude to use. Perceived benefits do not have a significant effect on directly affecting intention to use, but have a positive and significant effect if they get a mediating role from the attitude of using. This study proves the existence of a mediating role for perceived benefits and beliefs on attitudes to use. This study also strengthens the evidence that attitudes have a strong and positive and significant effect on intention to reuse, and are able to fully mediate the effect of perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness and trust on intention to reuse. Bank Bukopin management and bankers are also expected to use the results of this study to evaluate and take corrective action on aspects that are deemed incapable of encouraging the adoption of their internet and mobile banking services and creating customer loyalty to continually use the services they provide.

The development of the internet has influenced the development of the world economy. Various buying and selling transactions that previously could only be done face-to-face, have now developed into transactions via the internet known as e-business or e-commerce. The hotel room online booking system was created to make it easier for consumers to book rooms 24 hours a day. With the availability of the online booking feature, consumers can access hotel information in detail and more transparently, besides that, consumers can also see reviews which can be used as their consideration in choosing hotels and planning holidays. Traveloka's significant development as an Indonesian online travel agent unicorn plays an important role in accelerating the growth rate of the online travel ecosystem, especially for the domestic market. There are many factors that must be examined in finding information, placing orders, and purchasing online. Therefore, this research is focused on online booking behavior. This study aims to determine the influence between variables based on Theory of Planned Behavior, which consists of attitude toward the online booking behavior, subjective norm, perceived behavioral control, online booking intention and online booking behavior at Traveloka. Data was collected from 133 respondents of domestic tourists who have made online bookings at Traveloka. Data were analyzed using Partial Least Square (PLS) statistics with the Smart PLS 3.0 M3 program to determine the complexity of the relationship between latent variables and their indicators. The results of this study indicate that attitude toward the behavior and subjective norms have a positive and significant effect on online booking intention. Meanwhile, perceived behavioral control has no significant effect on online booking intention. Another finding is that online booking intention and perceived behavioral control are known to have a positive and significant effect on online booking behavior. Traveloka management and marketers are also expected to be able to use the results of this research to evaluate and take corrective action on aspects that are deemed inadequate and manage the ease of use of the application to increase online booking intentions through the Traveloka application.
