Abstract

In the digital era, organizations can use digital technologies to develop new digital products and services, business processes, or business models. These so-called digital innovations pose a serious challenge for both theory and practice. Accordingly, the last years have brought forward a multitude of research in this area. With this article we want to link existing research streams on digital innovations and, thus, pave the way for future research in this area. Therefore, we consolidate prevailing work on digital innovations into a technology-driven "linking" framework on digital innovations and their embedding in organizations. According to our framework, the realization and embedding of digital innovations into organizations manifests along three concentric rings: the technology-driven development and the different implementation categories of digital innovations at the core, the enablers of digital innovations in a second ring, and the governance of digital innovations in a third ring. Based on the proposed framework we point out promising areas for further research in this field.
