The aim of this research was to explore the conditions under which
digital innovation opportunities emerge in small and medium-sized
enterprises (SMEs). The research answered the question of what
capabilities are required to shape the exploitation of digital
innovation, namely market offerings and the digital business process. To
address the research question with a quantitative research method, data
were collected through survey questionnaires distributed among 280 SMEs
operating in the service and manufacturing industries in Finland. The
results revealed that among four digital-related capabilities—namely
human, collaboration, technical, and innovation capabilities—human,
technical, and innovation capabilities contribute to market offerings,
while human, collaboration, and technical capabilities contribute to the
business process.
