The Emerging Role of IT Governance

 This article presents a comprehensive perspective on IT Governance rooted in business considerations - a point of view that takes you beyond the IT world and narrow concerns such as compliance and risk.


What is IT Governance? Why is it important?

Some CIOs think of IT Governance as a "command and control" mechanism for IT; others as a "policing" function to elicit compliance; still others consider it a risk management framework.

Like the story of the elephant and the blind men, each has a different organ and thinks of it as the elephant - missing the proverbial elephant in the room! "...good IT governance is a strategic enabling force for your business. It is embraced by all levels in the organization and reaches far beyond the four walls of IT."

This article presents a comprehensive perspective on IT Governance rooted in business considerations - a point of view that takes you beyond the IT world and narrow concerns such as compliance and risk. Of course, you will have to wade through the gratuitous vendor software discussion but I promise it is minimal!
