IT Organization & Governance
Control IT continuously and comprehensively!
Complex market requirements, new digitalization initiatives, innovative technologies and the increasing expectations of business departments are placing an ever greater focus on the role of IT in the company. It is therefore becoming increasingly important for companies to create a clear framework for IT organization and governance that is individually aligned with the business strategy.
IT governance is a part of corporate management and comprises the organization, management and control of IT within a company. The focus is placed on formulating an appropriate IT strategy, setting standards and guidelines, and identifying and prioritizing IT investments.
Due to the individual requirements of the organization ("silos"), there are a large number of initiatives, issues and dependencies that must be taken into account from the very beginning. Planning, budgeting and implementation are therefore carried out separately by business units or regions.
It is essential for a successful IT portfolio to have an overview of all digital initiatives and their dependencies. Factors such as scalability, avoidance of redundancies, and a clear focus on resources and EBIT must always be taken into account. Digitalization pioneers are therefore establishing an IT governance function to achieve centralized control of IT activities. This focuses resources, shortens project runtimes and ultimately increases the ROI of the project portfolio.
IT governance as a control instance is accompanied by a future-proof Target Operating Model. Seamless integration into the organizational structure and workflow is ensured during the implementation of IT projects. This means that digital solutions and use cases can be operated sustainably even after the end of the project.
IT Governance answers the following core questions:
- How can IT best support the goals of the business strategy?
- What are the key principles for managing IT initiatives?
- How do I control my IT portfolio for more strategy contribution, ROI and scaling internally and externally?
- What roles and responsibilities, processes and tools can be used to control digitalization initiatives in the organization?
- How can employees in the company be empowered to efficiently apply new tools and processes?
