Topic: COBIT’s Value for Small and Medium Enterprises
For small and medium enterprises, information & technology (I&T) has become crucial for support, sustainability and growth. Previously, boards of directors and senior management could delegate, ignore or avoid I&T-related decisions. But today, such attitudes are ill-advised, to put it mildly.
SMEs are, just like large enterprises, increasingly dependent on technology and digitization (and thus, I&T for survival and growth). Therefore, top management needs to be involved in the management of I&T assets.
Some familiar with COBIT have commented that it is an excellent resource for larger enterprises, but it is difficult to implement in a smaller enterprise setting. This publication puts COBIT concepts in a small to medium context, allowing those enterprises to adopt pertinent COBIT concepts tailored to their size, scope and industry, enabling the benefits afforded by implementing COBIT. The publication provides examples of the tools needed to scope a governance program and define priorities.
