Governance

Unlock transparent and efficient business value from IT

About

Value of Governance

IT has such a high impact on critical business operations, and on competitiveness in an increasingly information dependent world, that it has become imperative for board directors to ensure that the value expected from IT is delivered, and IT related risks are managed. And that’s Governance (note, no mention of compliance or tick-boxing…)

Governance enables the enterprise to achieve effective and transparent use of IT to deliver business value, making sure there is clear and understandable communication between IT providers and the business users and other stakeholders.

We concentrate on the implementation improved outcomes from IT investments by enabling IT Governance improvements based on KING IV, COBIT® and other standards and best practices. We also provide tools to support the ongoing monitoring of IT activities. This includes prioritisation tools, maturity assessments to identify where improvements are needed as well as Metricus to provide management dashboards and scorecards.
