The alignment degree existing between a business process and the supporting software systems expresses how the software systems support the business process. This measure can be used for indicating business requirements that the software systems do not implement. Methods are needed for detecting the alignment level existing between software systems and business processes and identifying the software changes to be performed for increasing and keeping an adequate alignment level. This paper proposes a framework including a set of metrics codifying the alignment concept with the aim of measuring it, detecting misalignment, identifying and performing software evolution changes. The framework is, then, validated through a case study.
