IT is far too important to be left to the IT department!

Your business will stand or fall on the quality of its IT governance. Information technology can enable you to improve your operations and cut costs. And by changing the way you deal with your customers, IT may even have the potential to transform your entire business. However, IT involves an element of risk. For the sake of your bottom line, these risks are something your company needs to be capable of managing.

A business enabler

Having an effective IT governance framework in place will help you to safeguard your company against an information security breach. At the same time, your IT governance framework can open doors for your business. When there is widespread concern about identity theft, taking information security seriously is a way for you to attract new custom. Adoption of global best practice in regard to risk management is now essential for gaining access to the world’s largest capital markets. 

Ultimately, an effective IT governance framework is a business enabler. By ensuring that your IT systems are properly integrated with your business, and in harmony with your overall business goals, your company will be in a far better position to drive through changes and improvements. Establishing an IT governance framework is essential for the success both of IT projects and for the larger projects that need support from across the whole organisation.
