The use of IS/IT has became strategic, impacting the way organizations think and act, linking their inside and outside operations through their effective use. After looking at strategic uses in developed countries, it is worth studying how organizations in Albania use IS/IT in their business processes for succeeding in their respective markets. The aim is to identify how strategically do they use IS/IT. Applying mainly quantitative research through both secondary and primary data, a framework of studying the IS/IT use in Albania, as a developing country, shows that Albanian business have to use more in depth IS IT to benefit in a better way for improving their business processes.
