Virtual Decoupling for IT/Business Alignment – Conceptual Foundations, Architecture Design and Implementation Example

abstract IT/business alignment is one of the main topics of information systems research. The main challenge in this respect ist the mutual alignment of business and IT structures. Services, applications, and domains constitute fundamental artifacts and are described for the proposed alignment architecture. Direct equivalents for the elements of the alignment architecture are missing at both business and IT side. They should be of coarser granularity than those artifacts that are linked by them. Existing methods can be integrated into the proposed approach. As an alternative a bottom-up approach is proposed and demonstrated by means of a case study for the building of domains as virtual, aggregated artifacts of the alignment architecture.
