Effective IT governance framework important for business success

13/07/2011

Ely, England, 13 July 2011 – IT Governance Ltd, the leading expert in IT governance, risk management, compliance and information security solutions, is urging boards of directors to improve the IT governance in their organisation in order to achieve strategic objectives and meet the economic challenges of today.

In this modern age where organisations are ever more dependent upon their information systems, the issue of IT governance is becoming the single most important business topic of the next five years.

The international IT governance standard ISO38500 provides an efficient framework for organisations looking to improve their IT infrastructure and reap the benefits of optimised processes. IT infrastructure supports the business activities of every organisation and as such should be a key priority for the board of directors; an IT governance framework will help companies manage their investment in IT responsibility effectively, improve their performance and introduce effective project governance. Organisations that meet the compliance requirements and achieve ISO38500 certification are more flexible and competitive.

The Calder-Moir IT Governance Framework has been designed to help companies get maximum benefit from all overlapping and competing frameworks and standards (such as CobiT, ISO27001/ISO27002, ISO20000, ITIL and many other), and also to deploy the best practice guidance contained in ISO38500.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance says, “In order for any business to succeed in the new age of intellectual capital, boards of directors need to meet their fiduciary responsibilities in terms of information technology. The IT governance expectations of the shareholders demand an appropriate IT governance framework and board members need to make sure they have one in place.”

Improving the IT governance in an organisation is time consuming, and many small and medium companies are unable to spend money on consultancy fees. The experts at IT Governance are well known for their wealth of experience of helping companies achieve compliance at affordable prices. The IT Governance Toolkit was developed to help organisations achieve dramatic improvements for less than one day of consultant cost. The toolkit provides a single integrated framework that enables organisations to get the best out of CobiT, ITIL, ISO27001/ISO27002, ISO20000 and other standards and frameworks. It provides guidance on how to navigate wide-ranging and complex strategic, risk management, compliance and operational needs and includes templates and assessment tools that will simplify many aspects of the process. The toolkit offers a step-by-step guide to cross-company implementation. A free trial version of the toolkit can be downloaded from here http://www.itgovernance.co.uk/free_trial.aspx.
