IT Governance is defined as a process to ensure that an organization's technology capability supports its business strategy to realize its business goals while focusing on maximizing value for its shareholders.
According to the IT Governance Institute; "IT governance is the responsibility of the board of directors and executive management. It is an integral part of enterprise governance and consists of the leadership and organizational structures and processes that ensure that the organization’s IT sustains and extends
the organization’s strategies and objectives"
Ownership of IT Governance may be attributed to either the CIO or the CFO. Most corporations today have formed a committee that assumes the responsibility for IT Governance.
In order for a business to succeed in this global economy it must use information technology effectively, particularly with reference to its governance. An effective IT Governance framework plays a crucial role in the management of strategic and operational risk and compliance. It is therefore an imperative for a business to develop and implement a governance strategy and structure. Managers and executives from both IT and business departments should contribute to the IT Corporate Governance strategy.
