COBIT Training; A Holistic Approach
Unabated growth in the IT sector since 1990s, has triggered the evolution of a cross-functional perspective over the use of enterprise-wide information and its technology enabled core processes. This has compelled business organizations to consolidate and rationalize IT growth by optimizing its use to get the highest possible returns from business’ technology investments. It has broadened their vision and shifted their priority from driving out costs to driving up revenue by finding innovative uses of information and technology in governance and management of an enterprise. COBIT 5 is all about IT governance and management on real –time basis. It not only allows you to effectively manage the tension between the demand to deliver innovation and the need to control expenses but also empowers you to effectively use IT growth for creating values in a constrained economic environment. It is a comprehensive evolutionary framework that “ties together and reinforces all ISACA knowledge assets” by aligning with major ISACA frameworks, good practices and standards. COBIT training at The Knowledge Academy makes you aware that though COBIT is’ an end to end umbrella framework’ that combines together many existing frameworks yet it helps you distinguish that ‘management is about running the business and governance is about seeing that it is run properly’ (Tracker)
Controlled objective for information and related technology (COBIT) was first released in 1996 and has since then evolved to achieve balance between realizing business benefits through innovative use of IT and maintaining IT related risk at acceptable level. COBIT Foundation Training at The Knowledge Academy gives you holistic business view of how organizations are using COBIT to increase IT enabled executive decisions accountable. COBIT Training makes you proactive and knowledgeable about opportunities for the use of IT in aligning strategic information with the stakeholder’s need and thus create business value . It is built around five principles of governance and management of IT in an enterprise--- meeting the stakeholders need, covering the enterprise end to end, applying a single integrated framework, enabling a holistic approach and separating governance from management. Cascade of goals pursued during COBIT implementation, are initially derived from stakeholders expectations which in turn help to develop enterprise goals and IT goals. It uses seven enablers (Principles, Policies and Frameworks, Processes, Organizational Structures, Culture, Ethics and Behavior, Information, Services, Infrastructure and Applications, People, Skills and Competencies) to achieve enterprise goals. These generic principles and enablers of COBIT5 makes its application in varied sectors, a useful exercise. COBIT 5 unlike its previous versions is driven by stakeholder’s expectations and not necessarily by best practices. It has an additional domain that provides guidance on evaluation, direction and monitoring of corporate governance of information technology. COBIT 5 provides a structured governance framework and helps clarify the difference between governance and management. Training in COBIT renews an enterprise trust in your ability to create value from the information system. Besides it provides you an opportunity to carry out an innovative research in the field of governance and management of business information and related technology.
