The IT Governance Framework
Guidelines for Optimal IT Control
IT today is more than mere operations: innovative IT organisations must provide services that do not only support the business processes, but also create their own value proposition. Enforcing this objective is the task of IT governance: forming part of management responsibilities, it focuses on the areas of strategic alignment, resource and risk management as well as performance measurement and value delivery.
CobiT, an internationally recognized IT governance framework, breaks these five key areas down to individual processes and controls, thus providing companies with a structured approach to optimal IT alignment towards business strategy.
