Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to examine how business intelligence (BI) adoption affects agile performance in supply chain. Drawing from the computer behaviour literature, we hypothesise and test the relationship among technology-organisation-environment (TOE) framework, BI adoption and agile performance. A structural equation modelling (SEM) test with maximum likelihood estimation was performed to test the relationship among the research variables. The empirical results from the structural model suggest that TOE framework positively influenced business intelligence adoption. Furthermore, BI adoption was a direct antecedent of agile performance.

Keywords: supply chain agile performance; business intelligence; BI; technology-organisation-environment framework; technology adoption.
