BUSITAL 2015 – 9th International Workshop on BUSiness/IT ALignment and Interoperability
The special theme of the 27th edition of CAiSE is Creativity, Ability and Integrity in information Systems Engineering. Capacity to develop new products and services, and to explore new markets while improving product quality and reducing production cost and time are of vital importance for organizations today. Capabilities to support the alignment with new business models must be engineered to be actually and appropriately implemented in often adaptive information systems. Information systems play a strategic role at the very core of organizations fostering such capacities. Thus, for this 9th edition, the key theme of BUSITAL will be Business/IT Alignment engineering capabilities for business models innovation.
