ABSTRACT

Aligning business and IT in networked organizations is a complex endeavor because in such settings, business-IT alignment is driven by economic processes instead of by centralized decision-making processes. In order to facilitate managing business-IT alignment in networked organizations, we need a maturity model that allows collaborating organizations to assess the current state of alignment and take appropriate action to improve it where needed. In this paper we propose the first version of such a model, which we derive from various alignment models and theories.

    • "The market competition atmosphere is rapidly progressing towards a more collaborative environment. Therefore, some authors have proposed a few models for alignment in the inter-enterprise context (Santana et al. 2008; Pijpers et al. 2009). "

    ABSTRACT: Inter-enterprise architecture (IEA) is a new concept that seeks to apply the tools and methodologies of enterprise architecture (EA) in a collaborative context, in order to model collaborative organizations in an inclusive manner. According to the main enterprise architectures proposed to this point, an EA should be conformed at least for a framework, a methodology and a modelling language. Sensing enterprise (SE) is an attribute of an enterprise or a network that allows it to react to business stimuli originating on the Internet. These fields have come into focus recently, and there is not evidence of the use of IEA for modelling a SE, while finding an interesting gap to work on. Thus, this paper proposes an initial framework for inter sensing enterprise architecture (FISEA), which seeks to classify, organize, store and communicate, at the conceptual level, all the elements for inter-sensing enterprise architectures and their relationships, ensuring their consistency and integrity. This FISEA provides a clear idea about the elements and views that create collaborative network and their inter-relationships, based on the support of Future Internet.

    • "The nomenclature used is explained below: The "+" means that the alignment component is covered by the model using the same or similar name, "-" means that the component is not covered by the model and the "/" means that the component is not defined in the model explicitly but it is defined implicitly. According to this analysis, all models include, explicitly or implicitly defined alignment components of Henderson and Venkatraman (1993), the components defined by Cuenca (2011b), are not completely covered by these models, and the AMM of Luftman (2000), is only used in the model of Santana et al. (2008). On the other hand the Table 1.2 shows the relationship between the phases of the collaborative process discussed in Section 1.3.1 and models of alignment of business and IS/IT in collaborative environments, in order to identify which aspects of collaborative process covering these models, the conventions used are the same as in the Table 1 "

    ABSTRACT: The increasing competition, in which companies are currently involved, requires the search for agreement among different trading partners to achieve synergies that will allow them to build competitive advantage and survive in a globalized environment. Additionally, the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in this environment is essential to integrate and communicate to members of the supply chain (SC) or networks that want to collaborate, therefore it is necessary that the information systems and information technologies (IS/IT) be adjust and be support to global business strategy of the SC and/or networks. In this sense, this article seeks to analyze, relate and synthesize the research that has addressed the disciplines of collaboration and strategic alignment, both individually and jointly, in order to identify possible future lines of research from conceptualization performed.
