This paper presents a synthesis of recent research on IT capability by considering the relevant themes arising from the top ranking Information Systems (IS) journals. This research paper defines the concept of information technology capability (ITC). These definitions point to the main components of ITC by providing definitions and traits of IT personnel capability (ITPC), IT management capability (ITMC), and IT infrastructure capability (ITIC). Subsequently this study focuses on the characterisation of IT infrastructure capability (ITIC). Previous research indicates that ITIC, as a factor, is integral to organizational IT capability (Fink & Neumann 2007). As part of this discussion the various dimensions of ITIC flexibility are considered. Notably, the dimension of ITIC are considered the most important trait of IT infrastructure capability (Byrd & Turner 2000; Liu et al. 2013). This paper concludes by providing a proposal of study which explores the relationship between ITIC and an organization's strategy. Finally, the limitations of this study are acknowledged.
