Abstract:


Information technologies (IT) supporting business strategies and business processes are often the most important factor for successful organizations. Aligning IT with the business depends on many factors, including communication and cooperation between the top management of organizations and the top management of IT departments in strategic decision making and planning. This paper discusses the outcomes of a survey conducted in six hundred organizations operating on the Czech market. The aim of the survey was to verify whether organizations operating on the Czech market meet basic assumptions for business/IT alignment or, in other words, to find out the reality of business/IT alignment in practice.
