The paper proposes a framework for organizations’ business IT alignment that merges traditional IT assessment parameters, such as application portfolio coverage and integration, with technological and architectural parameters providing flexibility to the company’s Information System. The framework proves to be a practical decisional instrument, overcoming theoretical approaches which lack applicability to decision processes, especially in turbulent environments, where business needs may vary quickly and the adaptation capability of the Information System is a key competitive factor.

Abstract

The paper proposes a framework for organizations’ business IT alignment that merges traditional IT assessment parameters, such as application portfolio coverage and integration, with technological and architectural parameters providing flexibility to the company’s Information System. The framework proves to be a practical decisional instrument, overcoming theoretical approaches which lack applicability to decision processes, especially in turbulent environments, where business needs may vary quickly and the adaptation capability of the Information System is a key competitive factor.
