dc.description.abstract An important activity to maximize Business/IT alignment is selecting a software con guration that ts a given context. Feature models represent the space of software con gurations in terms of distin- guished characteristics (features). However, they fall short in represent- ing the e ect of context on the adoptability and operability of features and, thus, of con gurations. Capturing this e ect helps to minimize the dependency on analysts and domain experts when deriving a software for a given business and IT environment. In this paper, we propose contex- tual feature models as a means to explicitly represent and reason about the interplay between the variability of both features and context. We devise a formal framework and automated analyses which enable to sys- tematically derive products aligned with an organizational context. We also propose FM-Context, a support tool for modeling and analysis. en_US
