Information system (IS) development projects in enterprises are often aligned with business process improvement programs aimed at optimizing business performance. As experienced in our projects, decision makers need better support in order to enable them to assess the best way for spending the available resources. In the area of requirements engineering (RE) and release planning, prioritization is an established strategy for achieving this goal. Prioritization approaches currently found in the literature, however, do not consider all idiosyncrasies of business-process-driven software development. Hence, in this paper we analyze the suitability of state-of-the-art prioritization approaches based on the characteristics of typical business-process-driven software development projects. We identify the shortcomings of current approaches and outline our vision of how to overcome them in the future.
