The following chapter provides the results of the empirical data analysis with PLS. For performing a PLS parameter estimation a few software packages, most notably PLS-Graph, SmartPLS, PLS-GUI, and Spad-PLS are available. This research study uses SmartPLS 2.0 M3 for conducting the SEM analysis. This software has a graphical user interface and several features which allow for creating structural models, importing indicator data and generating outputs of parameter estimates in a comfortable manner.
