AbstractThe strategic information systems planningprocess (SISP) has become increasingly important for public organizations to achieve strategic alignment, SISP is overwhelmedwith problems that hinder organizations from reaping its benefits of it. Environmental hostility is the most prominent. Therefore, this research investigates the influence of environmental hostilityas a moderator variable in the relationship between the strategic information systems planning process (assessed SISP in terms of strategic awareness, situation analysis, strategy conception, strategy formulation, and strategy implementation planning phases) and strategic alignment in public originations in Thi-Qar province. The survey questionnaire was designed based on a comprehensive literature review. A panel of both academic scholars was used to review the questionnaire items. Based on responses from 61 public organizations, our empirical investigation provided the following results, eight out of ten hypotheses tested were supported. To analyze the data, partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) was used. The findings of the research demonstrate that strategic awareness, situation analysis, and strategy conception strongly effects strategic alignment, and environmental hostility as a moderator variable influences the relationship between these processes and strategic alignment. The implications and recommendationsof this study are also discussed.
