Business Aligned Level
This level indicates that the organization has achieved meaningful alignment of (service-oriented) technology resources and current business automation requirements. In other words, the organization has successfully aligned services and service compositions with the current state of the business.
Attaining this state further implies that most or all of the services planned for a given service inventory have been delivered and are in operation. Therefore, the Business Aligned level represents a level of organizational maturity that has resulted in a relatively mature service inventory.
