Could you define what you mean by "business goals" please?  I've
checked the archives, and didn't see any reference to that term.

<sd>
I hope this is not a trick question:-)) Coming to think of it,
I haven't seen a definition either. I will not even try!

I used the phrase "business goals"  to refer to the set of 
goals being debated in the thread "Business Infrastructure[1]"
and in comments such as from Tim Coote [2] as well as those
goals  (security, reliability,...) that are considered important 
in enabling the use of web for commercial transactions (I am probably
missing some other important references - hopefully somebody in the list
will
add to the list below).

This phrase is also used in the requirements document[3] (D-AG0002,
D-AG0003).
You might ask the respective champions of these goals as well as the editors
of the req. doc. for a definition.

Hope I am being helpful here.
