This paper proposes system architectures to support dynamically user-configurable innovation processes that leverage technology to combine knowledge management with a collaborative capability to facilitate continuous innovation in enterprises. It will present a framework that describes ways to leverage technology to provide the collaborative capability for the emergence of communities to pursue chosen innovation strategies and to support the communities with the ability to share knowledge. The technology will enable innovation processes to be integrated into business operations to facilitate continuous innovation in the enterprise. The proposed framework is made up of three major components, social structure, knowledge sharing and the innovation process. The paper will define measures for each of these components to provide flexibility in developing innovation architecture. It will focus on ways to support collaboration and will define a framework of collaborative capabilities that can be used to develop workspaces that support interacting communities in innovation processes. The communities will be supported by system components that support collaboration and knowledge sharing using flexible software platforms composed of lightweight services. The paper will describe ways that can be used by users to configure the platforms to the innovation strategy and evolve as the innovation process evolves.
