IT Governance 


This Organizations that lack effective governance suffer from low performance, heightened risk exposure, and resource allocation that may appear inappropriate, arbitrary, or political.

Organizations should excel in four areas of governance to be effective. For other governance activities beyond these critical pillars of success, we believe IT leaders should assess their organization's maturity to identify the greatest opportunities for improvement relative to peers.

And we do it according to the lean philosophy. All our processes are adapt to address customer needs, being as agile as required for the reality of each business.

Enterprise Architecture

Effective architecture governance reduces long-term support costs and enables IT to be responsive to business need. The longer-term strategic benefits, however, are often out-of-synch with project-specific goals and near-term pressures to deliver capabilities. Successful EA groups break this tradeoff by moving from red tape stage-gates to a toolkit that is integrated into workflows and accelerates design and development.

Portfolio Management

All IT organizations must manage high project demand with limited resources. The key is to create a process that builds a portfolio that will generate the most business value. The process must do this quickly and with little overhead. Too little process prevents decision makers from getting the information they need, while too much can cause stakeholders to disengage. Leading IT organizations establish portfolio governance that effectively balances rigor and responsiveness on an ongoing basis.

On average, IT delivers only a third of its projects on time, on budget, and with the required functionality. Effective project-level governance improves project success rates. Key factors include establishing a PMO, driving the right level of project methodology, and over-involving business sponsors and end users in specific stages across the project lifecycle.

ITIL/COBIT

The Information Technology Infrastructure Library® (ITIL®) is a methodology for managing IT as a service. It focuses on the end user rather than on the technology. ITIL is frequently used as a method of preparation for achieving ISO/IEC 20000 certification.
On this page we present general information on ITIL, the relevant books and tools, and the various qualifications and training options available.

COBIT is an IT governance framework and supporting toolset that allows managers to bridge the gap between control requirements, technical issues and business risks. COBIT enables clear policy development and good practice for IT control throughout organizations. COBIT emphasizes regulatory compliance, helps organizations to increase the value attained from IT, enables alignment and simplifies implementation of the enterprises' IT governance and control framework.
