In contemporary business organizations, technology provides the foundation around which organizations evolve and mature. It not only aids organizations in enabling strategic business objectives through automation of operations, but with their information processing and decision support capabilities, these technologies also aid in business planning and management. Thus, the scope of these technologies extends from strategic enablers to strategic advisors. The literature suggests various perspectives on the role of technology in organization, i.e., techno-centric, humancentric, and technology institutionalisation. This paper aims to look at technology lifecycle process, through the lens of technology institutionalisation perspective.
