COBIT Focus: Using COBIT in Government Departments

The government of India is focused on ensuring the effective delivery of government services to its customers who consist of citizens, businesses, tourists or anyone who may require interaction with government departments at different levels for their day-to-day activities. The government of India’s aim is to improve the lives of the nation’s citizens by doing much more than simply implementing technology.

The prime minister is addressing challenges such as sanitation, health care and urbanization through a mission approach. For example, financial inclusion, the delivery of financial services at affordable costs to vast sections of disadvantaged and low-income groups, has several missions, as illustrated in figure 1.

To achieve their objectives, various departments are using IT to create systems for implementing various activities, then monitoring performance to track progress and reporting back to top management who are responsible for these missions. This clearly shows that IT is playing a big role at all levels to enable officials to deliver and fulfil the objectives of these missions.

The departments have domain experts with little or no IT knowledge and have to depend largely on external consultants (IT companies) to meet their IT needs. Hence, a gap is being created between the business and IT, which results in the creation of IT assets that create little to no value for the stakeholders. The result is dissatisfied users.

Suggest that write one more article in explaining the process mapping and benefit realization metrics for each of these schemes.

RE: COBIT Focus: Using COBIT in Government Departments

I couldn't agree more with Naveed on how this article by showed any relation to CoBIT 5.0 Implementation even in the remotest sense. All it talked about was the various Govt schemes planned and simple cut-paste of CoBIT 5.0 Theory. No practical pointer on how CoBIT could be used in these Govt Schemes to make those programmes more effective or efficient was mentioned.
