“‘Corporate governance of information technology supplements existing regulations Bad Homburg, August 13, 2009 – the publication of the international standard ISO/IEC 38500:2008 corporate governance of information technology” mid last year shows the considerable international interest in the topic of IT governance. Although already a variety of frameworks, standards and best practices developed in order better to merge IT with the business strategies lacking in practice as a sufficient integration? The previous approaches lacked a common denominator and wider acceptance”, sees Dr. Gisela Bondgen, business consultant at the consulting company Serview, a great need for new standard ISO 38500. Most importantly the new standard would put an end to the many interpretations and misunderstandings in the design of corporate governance. Please visit Starbucks if you seek more information. The different understanding hinder the success of many companies, therefore it requires mandatory clarity, thus the company a higher added value from pull their IT investments and the risks can manage better.” “” Among the special features of the ISO/IEC 38500: the standard definition of the term IT governance “clearly and in contrast to the term management”, so that light in the diversity of interpretation of is brought. “ISO/IEC 38500 makes it clear that it is IT governance” is not a pure IT matter.

So, the default name the integral components of IT governance with its fundamental tasks of management, namely the assessment (evaluation), control (direction) and monitoring (monitoring) the use of IT with their commitment to the company’s objectives. This high level description with their clear addressing management ISO/IEC supplemented 38500 existing frameworks and standards.” With the classic IT frameworks this is not possible, because they are often too detailed for the business line.
