Assessement of IT governance: A prioritization of cobit
2006 (English)In: Proceedings of the Conference on Systems Engineering Research, Studentlitteratur, 2006Conference paper (Other academic)
A shared view on the definition of IT governance is lacking and practitioners do not use present IT governance frameworks to support their decision-making. A commonly agreed upon definition of IT governance would be very useful and would serve the development and refinement of IT governance frameworks and assessment methodologies. This article presents an Architecture Theory Diagram, ATD, and a framework for defining IT governance based on an extensive literature study. IT governance is the preparation for, making of and implementation of IT-related decisions regarding goals, processes, people and technology on a tactical or strategic level. The framework for defining IT governance was used to compare how IT governance is defined in literature, and within a group of IT governance experts. Cobit is the most well-known framework for IT governance and it is frequently used by practitioners. While comparing Cobit?s definition of IT governance to the previously identified concerns of literature and practitioners, it showed that Cobit does support most needs, but lacks in providing information on how decisionmaking structures should be implemented.
