On behalf of the organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to
submit a paper for the 5th International Workshop on Business/IT
Alignment and Interoperability BUSITAL'10 to be held, in conjunction
with the CAISE'10 conference, at Hammamet, Tunisia during
Monday June 7th 2010.

Scope and Purpose

Organizations are today becoming more and more dependent on their
information systems and IT-based support systems to realize their
business strategies, building value networks with partners, and
managing their resources effectively. But ensuring that their IT
investments are well aligned is not easy. Such alignment is a critical
early stage activity to understand how information systems contribute
to business strategy and to set directions for the development and
maintenance processes that follow. Its requires a good understanding
and solving of issues at all levels ranging from information
technology issues, through organizational issues up to business and
strategic issues, and the ability to rapidly, smoothly and
consistently adapt all these.

A number of frameworks and methods have been designed to help managers
in aligning business and IT. Recently, novel methods and techniques
based on conceptual and enterprise modeling have been proposed to
support mutual alignment between business needs and IT solutions.

The overall objective of the workshop is to bring together a larger
community (both Information Systems and Information Management)
contributing to exploring the benefits, challenges and solutions of
business and IT alignment.

Topics of interest:

* Frameworks, techniques and methods for capturing, understanding and
representing business strategy and its impact on information systems

* Systems, methodologies and frameworks for guiding information system
design using relevant information in business strategy models/
definitions, including traceability issues;

* Models, methods, and tools for indicating, analyzing, and measuring
alignment ;

* Solutions for guiding information systems evolution and adaptation
using relevant information in business strategy models/definitions,
including IT governance;

* Case studies and empirical reports on the benefits and costs of

* Business/IT alignment in organizational networks, including
co-creation of value through global networks;

* Alignment issues in Service-Oriented analysis and design.

Important dates

* Papers submission: March 1st, 2010
* Notification of acceptance: April 1st, 2010
