This research addresses the relationship of IS development and IT operations in system development projects. The paper uses an alignment perspective to analyze data from four independent studies: one focus group discussion, two case studies, and one Delphi study, in order to explore the relationship of the two domains. The paper concludes that the two domains are unsatisfactorily aligned, they are not well acquainted with each other’s domains, ommunication and information flow is not efficient, plans and activities are not well connected, and they do not have a close working relationship characterized by long-term commitments, and where goals, risk and benefits are shared. Improving their alignmentmust be a priority for IS development and IT operations alike.
