This article aims to examine the changes to innovation brought about by the Internet. Based on a systematic survey on the current efforts made by industry and academia in expanding the frontier of innovation, it found that Einnovation —innovations closely tied to a digital platform— is expanding traditional innovation in three aspects: having an obvious tendency to software development, requiring a dual-effort delivery, and deploying different managing/operating toolkits. These expansions are leading E-innovation to become a new paradigm for carrying out creative activities.
