The use of IT has the potential to be the major driver of economic wealth in
the 21st century. While IT is already critical to enterprise success, provides
opportunities to obtain a competitive advantage and offers a means for
increasing productivity, it will do all this even more so in the future (IT
Governance Institute, 2003, p. 14).
Successful deployment of IT governance creates numerous benefits for
business and IT. IT governance consists of the leadership and organisational
structures and processes that ensure that the organisation’s IT sustains and
extends the organisation’s strategies and objectives (IT Governance Institute,
2003, p. 10). In general, IT governance has five main focus areas. Two of these
are outcomes: value delivery and risk management. The other three are
drivers: strategic alignment, resource management (which overlays them all)
and performance measurement (IT Governance Institute, 2003, p. 19).
