Technology continues to evolve at breakneck speed, and organizations today are still making IT investments in the hope of attaining operational efficiency, improving sales and enhancing customer service levels. So much so, that IT has not become a critical component for most of them. While technology has the ability to deliver tangible business returns if chosen and implemented correctly, the reverse can also happen. We have all heard about huge IT projects failing in the past.
A new discipline called IT governance has now emerged out of the need to ensure IT-investments deliver on the value they promise. Covering best practices in various fields, IT Governance allows managers to bridge the gap between controlling requirements, technical issues and business risks. IT governance covers reporting, monitoring and evaluation of processes to guide technology investments, much like how accounting and auditing standards apply today.
The most influential international standards in the field of IT Governance today are:
§ Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology (CObIT) developed through the collaboration between the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) and the IT Governance Institute (ITGI) in the United States,
§ Information Technology Information Library (ITIL) developed by the United Kingdom Authorities and subsequently adopted by ISO as ISO 20000 Information Technology Service Management System (ITSMS),
§ BS 7799 developed by the British Standards Institute (BSI) and subsequently adopted by ISO as ISO 27001 - Information Security Management System (ISMS)
§ Sarbanes Oxley recently passed as law in the United States.
