The Nature of Digital Innovation and What Can Be Learned for Information Systems Management

Stefanie Kaczmarek, Martin Benedict, Marcel Susky

Abstract

In all spheres of life, the ongoing digital transformation has led to an increasing variety of definitions, types, and characteristics of digital innovation. However, the diversity of terminology regarding digital innovation may cause confusion about the general concepts in this context. Therefore, the objective of this study is to provide a descriptive insight into the nature of digital innovation. Our paper shows how digital innovation has altered since its emergence in the field of information systems re-search. This change of understanding has an impact on the design of information systems. Following a systematic literature review, a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the identified vocabulary was conducted to gain types and characteristics of digital innovation. Based on these characteristics, we describe how digital innovation influences information systems. We focus on hospital information systems as a case example from the healthcare sector.
