Abstract [en]

In this article we have presented different challenges that need to be handled during enterprise modelling if we want to achieve business and IT alignment. The over all research question in the paper is: What are the challenges within and between the levels in a multi-layered model for business and IT alignment? In relation to this research question we have addressed what consequences these challenges will have on our view on and use of enterprise models as a mean to achieve business and IT alignment. The aim with the paper is also to give guidance about how to deal with these challenges. Our recommendations for how to deal with these challenges are summarised in five conclusions about, 1) the use and support from ontologies, 2) change as driving force during modelling (AS-IS – TO-BE). 3) the dependencies within and between layers must be clarified, 4) create balance between degree of formalism, degree of details, and degree of accuracy, and 5) guidelines and best practices about how to deal with these types challenges during enterprise modelling to create business and IT alignment.
