This thesis is about the concept of strategic alignment of business intelligence. It is based on a theoretical foundation that is used to define and explain business intelligence, data warehousing and strategic alignment. By combining a number of different methods for strategic alignment a framework for alignment of business intelligence is suggested. This framework addresses all different aspects of business intelligence identified as relevant for strategic alignment of business intelligence: technology, organization, processes, people and strategies. Using the framework to analyze the strategic alignment of business intelligence of an organization will result in the identification of potential alignment gaps. These gaps can be considered as potential areas of improvement. By addressing these areas an organization could improve their alignment and also increase the value of the business intelligence investment
