The process by which business and IT are brought inline with each other to enhance the performance of business and to achieve business goals is called strategic alignment. Some models have been developed for the assessment of strategic alignment but an evaluation and comparison of capabilities of the models has not been studied due to the absence of a structured evaluation criteria.. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the strategic alignment models, collected through a comprehensive survey. For this purpose, we develop a strategic alignment evaluation framework which is a composition of a number of criteria. We further use this framework for the evaluation of six main alignment models. These models present concrete ways to evaluate strategic business IT-alignment.
