Strategic Business and IT Alignment (SBITA) requires a holistic view and a continuous coherent interrelation between the business components, personnel and IT systems, contributing to each other’s performance over time. Several conceptual and practical methodologies to assess or achieve it has been proposed and implemented before or parallel to the advent of the Enterprise Architecture (EA), lacking to a greater or lesser degree the EA modeling characteristics.This paper explains the criteria and the process for associating the artifacts of a SBITA methodology represented as Metamodel to the Zachman Enterprise Architectural Framework (ZEAF) and reports the association pattern and statistics. This association has been done in order to find the representations of the specific concern SBITA into the EA dominion. This paper reports, among other issues, to what extent and in which perspectives and aspects the SBITA assessment concern is predominantly represented in ZEAF.
