In this paper we present an Oracle view on Business and IT Alignment. As part of that view, we introduce three elements; management excellence, operational excellence and technology excellence. Most people are familiar with the term operational excellence; optimizing cost, quality, and speed. It has become a prerequisite to fuel the next level of competitive differentiation -- management excellence -- which is characterized by three other attributes; smart, agile, and aligned. Neither can be achieved without technology excellence; an IT strategy that focuses on being complete, open, and integrated.
