The purpose of this paper is to explore the impact of the social network in using enterprise systems. Using a model of information technology acceptance based on TAM, this paper explores the social network associated with the effective use of the enterprise system. The research model incorporated the following variables: social norms, computer anxiety, results demonstrability, job relevance, perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, behavior intention to use and use of the system. In a sample of 90 individuals, the SEM-PLS analysis of the model included the values associated with measures of centrality and network density. The research model and initial results of this analysis are presented in this article.

Keywords : TAM; social networks analysis; enterprise systems; individual acceptance; SEM-PLS.
