The importance of IT Governance greatly impacts an organisation’s ability to achieve its objectives. IT Governance also helps an organisation reduce their risks and increase its value.
IT Governance provides a good base for a risk framework.
IT Governance concentrates on performance and transforming IT to meet the present and future demands of the organisation and its customers. IT Governance is thus concerned with objectives that focus on the alignment of IT and business, value and benefits of IT, managing risk within IT and measuring the performance of IT services.
An IT governance framework can be deployed consisting of a mixture of various structures, processes and relational mechanisms.
