EGIT is an integral part of corporate governance. It is exercised by the board that oversees the definition and implementation of processes, structures and relational mechanisms in the organization that enable both business and IT people to execute their responsibilities in support of business/IT alignment and the creation of business value from I&T-enabled business investments (COBIT 2019). Many governance frameworks are either grown in some “organic” way by adding pieces which often don’t fit to each other, designed to respond only to external audit requirements, or designed following the “cookie-cutter” approach. As a matter of fact, a consistent design and implementation approach is need when implementing or improving governance of IT. COBIT® provides the guidance and means to build and sustain a best-fit governance system that aligns with major related standards, frameworks and regulations. The COBIT framework is also very relevant to the modern enterprise—bringing structure to decision making and assisting in the creation of a more agile governance system. COBIT provides the latest thinking in Enterprise Governance of Information & Technology (EGIT) and is a comprehensive repository of guidance, tools, models and resources to help business leaders achieve their objectives for effective I&T governance.
