Studies on enterprise IT innovations have established the relationships between a number of determinants and enterprise innovativeness. However, such studies in general have been conducted in developed economies. Recent literature has called for broadening innovation-related research to other contexts, such as emerging economies. It must be noted that emerging economies suffer from several innovation-related limitations, including poor innovation infrastructure, weak legal system, among others. Yet, practice suggests that in recent times, emerging economies are demonstrating high levels of innovativeness. However, to our knowledge, little or no studies have been conducted on this topic till date. Using a multi-methodology approach (including case studies, a pilot survey and a large scale survey) within the ICT industry in India, This proposed study aims at examining what factors will impact the development of four types of innovations for IT enterprises in India, one of the largest emerging economies in the world.
