Whilst the successful alignment of business strategy and IT development is an important topic, there are still few ways that this is possible. The Model Driven Architecture (MDA) shows promise as an approach but is focussed firmly in the IT domain at the level of the Platform Independent and Platform Specific Models. The Computation Independent Model (CIM) is targetted at business users, but this paper argues that the complexity of the CIM level disenfranchises them. The concept of a preCIM level could provide much richness to the MDA process and give the domain user greater ownership of the IT development that supports their processes.
