This study uses a quantitative methodology to investigate the ties that bind digital diffusion, mobile participation, IT support, and user satisfaction. The study is based on information gathered from 324 bank customers who responded to online questionnaires. The study's setup allows for investigating these connections within a cross-sectional framework, providing a snapshot of the relationships at a given moment. The findings highlight the significance of user-centric design and good interactions in boosting digital banking customers' satisfaction. The study's ramifications are significant in both theory and practice. In a scholarly sense, the research adds to our knowledge of the complex interrelationships between digital banking features and how they impact customers' overall satisfaction. For the Lebanese banking sector, it provides valuable takeaways, arguing for strategies that put the customer's needs first to make the most of digitalization, mobile usage, and technical advancements.</p> Sahar Alayli Copyright (c) 2023 Sahar Alayli 2023-09-08 2023-09-08 7 1 1 22 The Unrealized Potential of Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Analytics, and Blockchain in Accounting: A Literature Review <p>Digitalization is a popular topic, not only in the media but also, of late, in academic discourse. In the context of this article, digitalization specifically refers to artificial intelligence (AI), big data and analytics (BD&amp;A), and blockchain (BC) technologies. The emergence of digitalization has the potential to influence the role and relevance of the accounting profession in the future. While there is a fair amount of discussion about digitalization in the accounting literature, there appears to be relatively scant empirical data on the use of digitalization in accounting practice. This article contrasts the potential of the above digitalization technologies, as recounted in the academic literature, with the paucity of empirical research and data on the use of digitalization technologies by accountants in practice, on the global scale. The article recommends extensive empirical research on the use of AI, BD&amp;A, and BC technologies to help researchers and practitioners appreciate the realized benefits of these technologies as compared to their unrealized potential benefits</p> S A Mohan Maqbool Kader Quraishi Thi Ngoc Bich Nguyen Copyright (c) 2023 2023-09-27 2023-09-27 7 1 23 40
