The quest for the business fit of information systems is as old as the history of computers. In the past, computers used to lag behind the daily needs of the users because they lacked the capabilities of tackling the issues raised by the users. In the late 80’s, the fourth generation of computers was a decisive step toward the acquisition of such system capabilities that allowed powerful software to be developed (O’Brien, 2002), rendering them able to tackle almost any business problem.
