IT Governance Definition
IT governance is a structure of relationships and processes to direct and control the enterprise in order to achieve the enterprise's goals by adding value while balancing risk versus return over IT and its processes. In simpler terms, IT Governance is the ability to answer the following three questions:
Who makes decisions?
Why do they make a particular decision?
How do they reach a particular decision?
IT Governance further is about managing investments. Specifically, always validating investment and its alignment with organizational vision, its consistency with organizational principles and contribution to the overall strategic objectives.
Who Has Too Many Resources?
We often ask this question and it never fails, there is always either a resounding chuckle or heads nodding around the table. All of us, especially in Information Technology have to do more with less. Resources are scarce and the ability to deploy them effectively
effectively represents the difference between
and quite simply, failure. In a mature Business Model, sound resource management is essential. This mature business model must include governance (typically led by the CIO).
Tools such as Genius Project for Domino help organizations at all levels from the CIO down have complete visibility into the resource pool (internal resources, external resources – vendors, partners, etc., and physical plant resources). Genius Project for Domino delivers visibility across workgroups, geography or the enterprise.
Further, it assures visibility across a multitude of projects and programs.
Deliver, Deliver, Deliver
Delivery is the key to effective governance.
Whereas many talk about the organizational vision
, it is the ability to execute on the vision that creates delivery. After all, ideas that cannot be put into practice are just dreams. IT Governance is about delivery.
The Bottom Line
Genius Inside believes that the ability to direct and control the enterprise in order to achieve the enterprise's goals while balancing risk versus return is paramount to any IT Governance plan. Further, enterprises must make certain that IT and business alignment is achieved via a systematic, comprehensive governance process. The use of automation to reduce costs, improve visibility, and reduce if not eliminate ineffective processes within the technology portfolio is a pivotal component to success.
