The financial industry in Japan has seen a growing number of organizing financial groups or conglomerates since the Japanese antitrust law was revised in the late 1990s to make it easy to establish a holding company and formulate a company group
Now, as emerging technologies evolve globally, IT has been contributing to more and more effective and efficient company operations, enabling not only digital transformation, but also new business model creation by using innovative technologies.
Under these circumstances, holding companies of financial groups in Japan are seeking opportunities to create value for stakeholders through business integration with innovative start-up companies and providing their group companies with centralized and shared IT services so all can enjoy the benefits of their group synergy.

Hello, COBIT Focus Readers,
This is Rich Inaba, the author of the above titled article.
In this article, I have tried to share such an idea of a
group IT governance for a financial group that a holding company should oversee each group company’s
IT management as well as manage the Shared IT services to the Group Companies
in order to acquire the benefit of group synergy and create value to the group
stakeholders. I think that the combination of the oversight of group companies
and shared IT services to them by a holding company is the essence of group IT
I believe this kind of group IT governance is applicable not
only to holding companies in Japan, as described in my article, but also
applicable to those in everywhere worldwide.
I would appreciate it if you, the readers, could give me any
kind of feedbacks, such as discussions, opinions, comments, etc. Those
feedbacks are very precious for me to improve my thought process and my group
IT governance system model.
