Bridging the Gap, Cobit 5! - Not Just For Your Auditor Anymore
Your are the CIO and you are on the elevator. It stops on the 3rd floor on its way to your meeting on the 21st floor. The CEO walks in, and as the elevator doors close she turns to you and asks "What is the most important thing on your plate right now and why is it important to me?". You feel your blood pressure rise like the floor indicator on the elevator. As you begin to talk about the big high cost infrastructure project, you see her roll her eyes. You spout off generic benefits of virtualization and notice the CEO has a blank look on her face…you know you missed the mark! You think to yourself, I should have been more prepared!
This presentation will show you how Cobit 5 helps IT organizations integrate their improvement efforts to business objectives. Providing both a governance and a management framework, Cobit 5 gives us a simple set of tools that allows you to map IT improvements quickly and effectively to the business benefit that is delivered. The integration of business and IT goals is the key to alignment, or better yet, "integration". Organizations that have an IT entity that is integrated to the business are able to make decisions based on the Value IT delivers and the Risk IT mitigates or creates instead of just making decisions based on IT costs.
