Abstract This paper investigates factors contributing to the diffusion and adoption of IT within small and medium-sized firms in Indonesia. Multiple case studies were used to answer the research questions. Based on the exploratory study, it is believed that internal innovative capabilities of firms have a prominent role in facilitating IT diffusion. This factor is made up of three proxy variables: level of IT knowledge, level of IT investment and coherent IT strategy reflecting the circumstances by which small and medium-sized firms are able to respond to possible technological changes. The existence of government support and industry-academia linkages is also a contributing factor to the diffusion and adoption of IT in firms.
