BETTER IT GOVERNANCE FOR ORGANIZATIONS - A Model for Improving Flexibility and Capabilities of Strategic Information Systems Planning (SISP) through EA and BPR under e-Business Environment

Jungho Yang

Abstract

Within more turbulent, and increasingly globalized and digitalized environments, Strategic Information Systems Planning (SISP) has been recognized as one of the most significant factors for effective and efficient IT governance to improve organizations’ effectiveness and capabilities by changing the characteristics or overall governance of organizations. Although organizations have been introduced, various well-known methodologies for creating the SISP successfully to maximize their strategic opportunities and values, the current literatures indicate that there is no perfect and fully comprehensive methodology or model to make organizations satisfactory. The purpose of this paper is to propose a model that can complement issues of the existing model and support improved flexibility and capabilities, and at the same time minimize waste and systems inconsistency by incorporating EA, BPR and concurrent approach. On-going research will be a case study to validate the proposed model in the government of Korea and to seek for other potential issues and factors compared with other sectors.
