To align an IT system with an organization's needs, it is necessary to understand the organization's position within its environment as well as its internal configuration. In SEAM for Enterprise Architecture the organization is considered as a hierarchy of systems that span from business down to IT. The alignment process addresses the complete hierarchy. The authors illustrate the use of SEAM for Enterprise Architecture with an example in which a new hiring process and an IT system are developed.
