Assessment of IT Governance - A Prioritization of Cobit
A shared view on the definition of IT governance is lacking and practitioners do not use present IT governance frameworks to support their decision-making. This paper presents an Architecture Theory Diagram, and a framework for defining IT governance based on an extensive literature study. The framework for defining IT governance is employed to compare how IT governance is defined in literature, and within a group of IT governance experts. Cobit is the most well-known framework for IT governance and it is frequently used by practitioners. The IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) provides useful best practice in the field of service management and service delivery, but does not cover the strategic impact of IT and the relation between IT and the business.
