Last year, part 1 of this article outlined how CPA firm Yount, Hyde & Barbour was using COBIT® to help build processes to allow its IT department to better serve the enterprise’s needs. While progress has been slow, the firm has seen improvements due to its implementation efforts.

A mid-sized regional accounting firm with 18 shareholders and 140 employees, the enterprise has 6 locations—1 recently relocated and a 7th location planned for inclusion in first quarter 2015. The staff is to be very mobile with at least 20 people working remotely or at a client’s location at any given time. Given these conditions, there is a complexity to the IT function that is greater than the size of the organization would suggest.

The firm looked to use COBIT to organize the IT function using a framework to create efficiency and meet the needs and expectations of stakeholders. Using the 7 phases outlined in ISACA’s COBIT® 5 Implementation, the firm began by identifying the drivers. The 3 major drivers identified were:
  •  A general disconnect existed between IT and the needs of the professionals.
  •  IT spending, while within budget, did not align with firm needs.
  •  IT expectations and demands among the firm’s shareholders varied.
