Recognizing and utilizing IT innovations are essential activities to maintain and strengthen the competitiveness of companies. The IT in companies has the opportunity to change its own role towards a business enabler and driver by establishing a systematic IT innovation management. Existing frameworks and models for IT governance and IT management do not adequately describe how a systematic IT innovation management should be structured and integrated with other tasks and processes. The authors conducted a qualitative empirical study, which shows that this requirement is also seen as important in practice.
