BUSINESS IT ALIGNMENT
The Business - IT Alignment (BITA) is a state in which the implemented IT solution supports the activities of the business organisation effectively.
Consequently, disalignment is a state in which the implemented IT solution doesn't suit the business. It creates issues and hampers the business actvities an evolution.
Can the Gap be Bridge ?
Absolutely! At least, the alignment gap can be greatly reduced and kept to an acceptable minimum.
What is beyond the Business-IT alignment gap ?
If the IT reaches the objective of suiting the business needs by supporting its activities,
then only a part of the potential of IT is exploited. Indeed, IT can play a greater role in business.
New products embedding IT concepts and technologies can be developed.
New services based on IT technologies capabilities can be proposed to customers.
IT may lead to new business models and to new ways of doing business.
It may influence the internal organisation of the company, its functioning and its activities
increasing its efficiency, its effectiveness and its capabilites.
IT can be a source of innovation. It can increase and even generate business volume
and create new business opportunities.
IT can be a driving force for IT. This goes well beyond an alignment.
It is about a maximal exploitation of the real capabilities and power of IT.
