The work presented in this paper aims to demonstrate the challenges in the implementation of Information System Strategy in Saudi based business environment in general and in a bank. To illustrate these challenges, this paper employs a case study and a survey to investigate the types of challenges in a bank. The paper then displays analysis and discus-sion of the survey results. Based on the responses, it presents some recommendations that may help to overcome these difficulties. The results strongly indi-cate that the management challenges between IT and business could be avoided if there were an adequate connection between IT and business.
