How to achieve good governance of Technology
One of the most popular terms in the field of Information Technology (IT) is Governance, which is often associated to specific quality frameworks such as COBIT, ITIL or CMMI. There is also the misconception that knowing these frameworks automatically means you have good governance in the organization. Although it is a very good first step, nothing could be further from the truth.
In order to define what constitutes good governance, which is the value it brings to an IT unit and how existing quality frameworks, such as ITIL v3, can be used to strengthen governance in an IT unit; the conference «ITIL in IT Governance» was held on Wednesday, October 17, at the City of Knowledge Business Accelerator. The conference, dictated by Engineer Lorna Sánchez, was part of the Conference Cycle in Actualization of Information Technologies co-organized by Alcenit Corporation. The event was attended by members of the Entrepreneurs Network and representatives of private companies and public institutions interested in the governance of IT organizations based on the industry best practices.
The conference showed how ITIL v3 can complement other quality frameworks to ensure good governance of an IT operation, aligned with business objectives.
