IT Governance in King III

May 24th, 2010 by

A growing number of companies in South Africa are turning to the innovative Calder-Moir IT Governance Framework and the linked, highly useful IT Governance Framework Toolkit to provide them with the tools they need to structure their overall approach to King III IT governance compliance and to draw effectively on the best practice contained in ISO38500 and COBIT.

IT Governance: Implementing Frameworks and Standards for the Corporate Governance of IT provides practical guidance for organizations implementing IT governance frameworks.

This week only, with every order for the IT Governance Framework Toolkit, we’re giving away IT Governance: Implementing Frameworks and Standards for the Corporate Governance of IT FREE!

King III brings IT governance clearly into the corporate governance arena and says:

“Information systems were used as enablers to business, but have now become pervasive in the sense that they are built into the strategy of the business. The pervasiveness of IT in business today mandates the governance of IT as a corporate imperative.

In most companies, IT has become an integral part of the business and is fundamental to support, sustain and grow the business. Not only is IT an operational enabler for a company, it is an important strategic asset to create opportunities and to gain competitive advantage. Companies have made, and continue to make a significant investment in IT. Virtually all components, aspects and processes of a company include some form of automation. This has resulted in companies relying enormously on IT systems. Further, the emergence and evolution of the internet, ecommerce, on-line trading and electronic communication have also enabled companies to conduct business electronically and perform transactions instantly. These developments bring about significant risks and should be well governed and controlled.
