What is COBIT?

COBIT is a framework for the management and governance of IT in enterprises. The COBIT has been developed by ISACA, a non-profit, independent association for IT governance professionals around the world and draws from the collective knowledge and experience of the organisation’s global development team. COBIT provides best practices, tools and models for gaining the best value from information systems and is used by organisations such as Oracle, Maitland Group, Unisys and GlaxoSmithKline.

Case Study

Maitland is a privately owned international firm offering corporate and investment services around the world.

Being a large organisation with more than 11 offices across Europe, the Caribbean and South Africa, Maitland needed control and oversight over the organisation’s use of IT. To do this, they realised a governance framework was needed. Maitland chose COBIT as it was a natural extension of their already established overall governance practices.

Maitland’s implementation of COBIT has included both their business and IT resources, meaning there is a clear understanding how the two can relate to each other. The framework has also allowed them to design and deploy a project office, meaning they have gained greater control over their projects and have a greater chance of leading them through to success.

Moving into the future, Maitland have noticed that many of the principles of COBIT designed for IT can, in fact, be used across the whole enterprise, and they are in the process of applying them in this way.
