Abstract

The alignment between Information System (IS) and strategic planning is one of the most significant areas of concern on the priority list of business IT issues, as well as in the management field. IS alignment has persisted as a one of the top concerns for IT managers for almost 30 years, and has been the first- or second most importance in the last eight years. However, recent studies have shown that organizations are struggling to address alignment challenges. The literature does not provide clear and practical guidance on how to implement success integration between IS and business strategy, and does not identify the requirements for achieving, maintaining and diagnosing challenges that hinder a sustaining alignment. This paper focuses particularly on the development of a framework to manage Information System alignment in such a way as to achieve organizational efficiency and effectiveness.
