Abstract

Since few years, enterprise information technologies (IT) are no more seen as a simple technological support for business strategies in the enterprise. Moreover, standalone IT departments are created in order to support evolution and growth of IT in the enterprise. Often, IT department defines a specific strategy describing vision, goals and objectives of IT development in the organization. However, to remain competitive, IT strategy and IT investment should be coherent with global enterprise strategies. The continuous process of preserving coherence between Business/IT strategies is widely known as strategic Business/IT alignment. Our work aims at discussing the relation between interview based Business IT alignement discovery and the Strategic Alignement Model proposed by Venkatraman. The paper proposes also modeling tools and engineering methodologies to support this alignment process.
