INFORMATION SYSTEM QUALITY ASSURANCE IN FINANCES - Building the Quality Assurance into Information System Architecture

Dragutin Vukovic, Krešimir Fertalj

Abstract

Key goals in assuring information system quality are continual improvement of IT performance, to deliver optimum business value and ensure regulatory compliance. Practices that support these goals are strategic alignment, asset and resource management, investment and portfolio management, risk management and sustained operational excellence. These are all about governance. While most organizations select a specific framework and apply it on the existing architecture, this may hinder them in taking a more holistic approach to IT governance. This paper discusses governance reference model and frameworks, and proposes a holistic approach in which prerequisites for quality assurance are built-in into information system architecture.
