Corporate Governance of Information Technology
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Information Technology Governance, IT Governance is a subset discipline of Corporate Governance focused on information technology systems and their performance and risk management. The rising interest in IT governance is partly due to compliance initiatives, for instance Sarbanes-Oxley in the USA and Basel II in Europe, but more so because of the need for greater accountability for decision-making around the use of IT in the best interest of all stakeholders. A characteristic theme of IT governance discussions is that the IT capability is directly related to the investment choices taken by top management that have long term consequences for various stakeholders. The traditional involvement of board-level executives in IT issues was to defer all key decisions to the company's IT professionals. IT governance implies a system in which all stakeholders, including the board, executive management, customers, and staff have clear accountability for their respective responsibilities in the decision making processes affecting IT.
