IT Governance

IT has established itself as one of the central factors for achieving the company’s goals and is therefore the focus of senior management but generally at a high level business strategy. 

In many cases, the consistent alignment of IT goals with business goals does not take place nor are individually adapted IT governance structures established to translate a high level strategy into day-to-day practice.  

IT governance is a subset of corporate governance which focuses on “performance” and “conformance” and establishing a balance between these two objectives. The five IT governance areas are: 

• IT Business Alignment
• Risk Management
• Resource Management
• Value Delivery
• Performance Measurement

Governance of IT encompasses several initiatives for board members and executive management. They must be aware of the role and impact of IT on the enterprise, define constraints within which IT professionals should operate, measure performance, understand risk and obtain assurance."  (Reference: IT Governance Institute)

To implement IT governance an IT governance framework should be established as outlined below:
