Abstract [en]

Despite the long list of cumulative research on business-IT alignment, researchers and practitioners argue that it remains to be evasive. On the other hand, business-IT alignment is found to be associated with improved overall organizational performance. As today’s organizations continue to spend a significant amount of their resources on IT to improve the variety and quality of services, achieving and maintaining business-IT alignment is a timely issue that needs to be addressed. Studies indicate that organizational structure, among other factors, plays an important role in whether organizations succeed in achieving business-IT alignment. A systematic literature is conducted to provide an overview of previous studies as well as point out possible future research directions. Databases indexing reputable journals and conference proceedings in the information systems research domain were searched. A total of 21 articles were identified and included in the review. The findings indicate that there are few studies poised to address the lack of knowledge on how the formal/informal organizational structures influence business-IT alignment. Empirical studies are needed to settle the debate on which types of organizational structures contribute to achieving business-IT alignment in today’s organizations. The study presents a summary of previous findings and proposes potential future research directions.
