In this study, an attempt has been made to investigate the connectivity strength of employee perception on the successful implementation of business-IT alignment. To be specific, we first justify and verify the connection between several employee perceptions and business-IT alignment through hypothesis testing, and then measure the relative importance of each perception onto business-IT alignment via neural network computation. Our findings suggested that perceived employee communication has the strongest relationship with business-IT alignment, followed by employee knowledge and employee trust. Specifically, employee communication and knowledge are two major perceptions that affect the success of the business-IT alignment.
