A 2007 survey commissioned by ISACA® found that while many IT functions had gone beyond being concerned only about the day to day operational activities and were addressing regulatory compliance requirements such as risk management and internal controls, less than fifteen percent were emphasising good governance and are able to effectively manage the delivery of value to the stakeholders.
In most organisations the goals and business benefits of IT are not defined upfront and CIOs do not have the mechanisms in place to be able to manage and measure the success of their IT function contributing to the creation of real value.
The primary objective of this book is to show how IT Governance and the King III requirements are aligned and to describe the impacts of these on the board, CIO and IT organisation. The diagram shows the IT Governance topics covered by this book. Existing IT Governance models and standards have been referenced to assist clarification of concepts.
