In October 2012, the Brazilian Court of Audit (TCU) conducted a survey involving 337 public institutions, and found that in most of the organizations, corporate governance did not include IT governance under its jurisdiction, granting a worrisome autonomy to the IT department. 

To deal with this omission, a governance model has been proposed involving the integration of corporate governance with IT governance. The integrated model aims to ensure not only the optimization of internal controls to achieve compliance, transparency and accountability, but also the proper use of investments in IT aligned with corporate strategic objectives.

The integrated model is based on the relationship between King III  and COBIT® 5.  The explicit relationship between these governance models is based on the principles of the fifth element of King III, IT governance, and in four of the five processes of the Evaluate, Direct and Monitor (EDM) domain of COBIT 5, in which the board of directors is accountable, per the Responsible, Accountable, Consulted and Informed (RACI) matrices. 

The implementation of the integrated model may be undertaken in four phases, which are ordered from strategy to IT operation, and are in line with the traditional logical sequencing of the implementation of a governance model.

RE: COBIT Focus - 4 Steps to Integrate IT and Corporate Governance

Good day

COBIT 5 APO03.01 indicates the following:
Confirm and elaborate architecture principles, including enterprise principles. Ensure that any existing definitions are current and clarify any areas of ambiguity.

My question is what is meant by architecture principles and enterprise principles?

RE: COBIT Focus - 4 Steps to Integrate IT and Corporate Governance

Hi Sonja078,

First of all, thank you for the comment, its very important for us help anyone who want to know about the topic. 

This practice  is defined to Develop the Enterprise Arquitecture Vision. According to COBIT 5, this practice need to provide a high level description of the baseline and target arquitecture, cover business, information and technology domains. Beyond that, the practice need to show how the new capabilitys will meet enterprise goals and strategic objectives. 
In the activities of the practice, we found clearly the need to, in a high level definition, set up the arquitecture according to the enterprise goals and strategic objectives. I believe that the arquitectures principles was focused on the infrastructured  definitions to attend the strategic objectives of the company, defined in the enterprise principles. The difference between them is a technical approach, separate from a strategic and corporate approach. The technique is defined according to the Corporate.

I hope that I may have helped to answer your question.

Regards, Rodrigo
