The aim of this study is to investigate the acceptance and usage of big data analytics in enterprises, and to understand how end-users perceptions and organisational factors influence the implementation of big data projects. This study unfolds in two objectives. The first objective is to examine the concepts and elements of big data and big data analytics. The second objective is to propose and empirically validate an extensive model of technology acceptance incorporating individual perceptions and organisational elements.
