Purpose of the Document Methodology for the Mapping Through original research, case studies and electronic resources, ITGI helps ensure that boards and executive management have the tools and information they need for IT to deliver against expectations.
COBIT provides a edtiion, comprehensive IT governance and control framework based on the harmonisation of more than 50 IT good practice sources published by various international standards bodies, governments and other institutions.
The research addresses questions such as: In addition, the results help entities that are planning to apply standards and guidance to harmonise those initiatives and use COBIT as the overall framework for sound IT governance. Although quickstrt of these questions can be addressed using the openly available COBIT guidance, more specific information is sometimes required. The mapping project addresses the gaps by mapping the most important and commonly used standards1 to the COBIT esition and control objectives.
It consists of two components: A brief overview of the standards mapped against each other in this document is as follows: With the addition of management guidelines inCOBIT was used more frequently as a management framework, providing management tools, such as metrics and maturity models, to complement the control framework. Version 3 consists of 27 detailed processes organised into five high-level processes described in five core books—Service Strategy, Service Design, Service Transition, Service Operation and Continual Service Improvement—that comprise one function: This mapping does not contain all of the details of Ediion v3.
Some language is included directly from ITIL, but it is recommended to obtain a copy of the original document. Quickstagt detailed mapping was done as shown in figure 1. If a, b and c failed, then COBIT does not cover the requirement of this specific information, in which case the most appropriate process was selected and the information requirement was mapped to non-existent control objective 99 of the process.
Cobtithe second edition cobot published with additional control objectives and the Implementation Tool Set. The third edition was issued by ITGI in and included the management guidelines and several new control objectives. Within organisations, COBIT intends to support executive management and boards; business and IT management; quckstart governance, assurance, control and security professionals. The level of detail primarily depends on the role of the function.
If the function is responsible to fulfil the requirements, thorough knowledge should be ensured, but if the function is accountable or involved otherwise consulted or informedan overview should be applicable.
The level is indicated in figure 2. The research conducted for these updates addressed components of the control objectives and management guidelines. Specific areas that were addressed include: The first document,was published in Others are still in development.
It includes the most significant parts of IT management, including those covered by other standards. Although no technical details are included, the necessary tasks for complying with the control objectives are self-explanatory. Therefore, it is classified at a relatively high level, aiming to be generically complete but not specific.
It offers online, real-time surveys and benchmarking. Enterprise governance is inadequate without IT governance and vice versa. IT can extend and influence the performance of the organisation, but IT has to be subject to adequate governance. On the other hand, business processes require information from the IT processes, and this interrelationship has to be governed as well.
In this subject matter, the plan-do-check-act PDCA cycle becomes evident. The concept of the PDCA cycle usually is used in structured problem-solving and continuous-improvement processes. Both the information needed enterprise governance and the information delivered IT governance have to be planned with measurable and constructive indicators plan.
The information and, possibly, information systems have to be implemented, delivered and used do. The outcome of the information delivered and used is measured against the indicators defined in the planning phase check. Deviation is investigated, and corrective action is taken act. Considering these interdependencies, it is apparent that the IT processes are not an end in themselves; instead, they are a means to an end that is highly integrated with the management of business processes.

Plans and organisational structures already developed can be adopted, depending on the significance of each service, rather than developing a new plan for the IT service. Services are implemented subsequently, and all necessary precautions for ongoing service, delivery and monitoring are considered. From the IT governance point of view, single services are merely in the background.
Each process is described by using the following information: Based on the broader quality, fiduciary and security requirements, seven distinct, certainly overlapping, information criteria are defined as follows: It also concerns the safeguarding of necessary resources and associated capabilities. They may be internal, outsourced or contracted as required. A maturity model has been defined for each of the 34 COBIT IT processes, providing an incremental measurement scale from 0, non-existent, through 5, optimised.
Using the maturity models developed for each IT process, management can identify: These attributes can be used for more comprehensive assessment, gap analysis and improvement planning.
The maturity attributes are: Although produced and published by a single governmental body it is owned by the British governmentITIL is edigion a standard.

The books are titled: The OGC was commissioned to develop a methodology for efficient and effective use of IT resources within the British government. The ethos behind the development was the recognition of increased dependence on IT service, which has to be managed by high-quality IT processes. The level is indicated in figure 6. The ITIL v3 publications were released in mid following a very extensive development effort over several years based on feedback from users of the previous ITIL versions.
There are also conversion courses and exams that previously certified personnel must complete to retain their certification. There are three levels of certification for IT service management staff at different functional levels. It does not attempt to cover the entire breadth of IT management and IT governance.
Furthermore, it provides guidance on value creation, market and offerings strategies, structure of services, types of service providers, organisational development, sourcing, and financial management. It outlines four key processes: Processes covered by this volume are service catalogue management, service-level quicksart, capacity and availability management, IT service continuity management, information security management, and supplier management.
It identifies availability management, capacity management, continuity management and security management as key elements used in the design of quixkstart services to be provided. The processes covered are transition planning and support, change management, service asset and configuration management, release and deployment management, service validation and testing, and evaluation and knowledge management.
It also provides references to operational activities in other processes.
