Integrated Governance of IT Services for Value Oriented Organizations

Antonio Folgueras Marcos, Belén Ruiz Mezcua, Ángel García Crespo

Abstract

This paper shows a latest generation model for the management and governance of the technologies and Information Systems (IT) in the organizations. IT governance is the key to achieve high level of maturity in the SOA Maturity Model. Currently there are standards and methodologies of international character that cover in detail the different critical aspects of the Information Technologies’ governance such as CobiT, Itil, ISO20000 and Balanced Scorecard for IT. This governance model starts from the knowledge acquired in the mentioned standards and allows carrying out the tacit and strategic governance of all the activities in an information systems department. The model depicted in this paper includes: the monthly and tacit control of the IT processes, the system’s portfolio management, the IT strategy planning and the alignment of the strategies with the operations (four alignments because considers: systems and business). This model is called IG4 (Information Governance Four Generation) due to the fact that it includes important improvements on the classic management and governance IT models.
