RE: The Future of IT Governance – The ISACA Board Wants to Know

Hello Ron,
Exciting questions!!
Followings are my opinions.

What forces will most impact IT Governance?
 - Interconnected ITs (IoT, cross-border network, cross-organization network etc.)
 - Vague boundaries of responsibilities
 - Unimaginable cyber attacks
 - More flexible and rapid system development methods (over the DevOps)

How will these forces change Governance?
 - IT Governance will be no more within one organization.
 - Interconnected Roles & Responsibilities will be necessary.
 - Very sophisticated Information Security Governance will be necessary.

What will be the role of IT Governance in 5 to 10 years?
 - Value Creation, Risk Optimization and Resource Optimization (same as COBIT 5)

How will COBIT need to change to meet information and information technology governance in 5 to 10 years?
 - Decision making system cannot be in one organization.
 - More intimate relationships between Business/Life process and IT process
 - Applicable to interconnected business/life environments.
 - Fusion of CSX and COBIT

RE: The Future of IT Governance – The ISACA Board Wants to Know

What forces will most impact IT Governance? - The increasing demand for more IT-enabled change within enterprises - Need for greater integration within enterpise strategies How will these forces change Governance? - Making it more prominant an activity at senior/board level What will be the role of IT Governance in 5 to 10 years? - A major part of business strategy How will COBIT need to change to meet information and information technology governance needs in 5 to 10 years? - Simplify understanding for users and inter-connectedness within other enterprise processes. - Reduce the number of processes to be more manageable for the majority of small-scale IT departments - Focus more on the service management side, integrating further with other frameworks such as ITIL.

RE: The Future of IT Governance – The ISACA Board Wants to Know

Privacy, internet of things and sustainability are having the biggest impact on IT governance. IT governance will only rise higher in priority and significance to the board. With the internet of things or what IBM calls ‘Smart Planet’, everything will be reliant on IT. With the cost of hardware shrinking while processing power and storage capacity is doubling rapidly, this means that service management, sustainability and privacy will rise to the core of IT Governance.

Service management will be key since all smart services will need to provide near 100% reliability, regardless of the demands by the consumer / user base. To provide near 100% availability, new forms of sustainable hardware will need to be prioritized by the business. Lastly, for the connected smart, user-customised services to work, they require a compromise / consent to some erosion of privacy. IT Governance will need to understand cultural, privacy and ethics issues beyond standard consent forms.

RE: The Future of IT Governance – The ISACA Board Wants to Know

How has the Internet of Things (IofT) forced you to change your thoughts in leading your staff?  Are they actively participating in creating ideas for your team and your IT users?
Are you tracking the actual costs of these changes (e.g. salaries, sub-staff and IT user training, capital expenses and on-going costs for maintenance and upgrades)?
What are you doing to explain these changes to IT users?  Are you developing your own training or looking at outside sources? (Different type of expenses apply to either approach.)

RE: The Future of IT Governance – The ISACA Board Wants to Know

Hello Ron, The following are my random thoughts/views: What forces will most impact IT Governance? - Disruptive technologies. - New (as yet unknown) business models. How will these forces change Governance? - Businesses as we recognise them today may not exist. - Business services will be provided by ecosystems with multiple partners and responsibilities. - There will be no one owner and very fuzzy boundaries. What will be the role of IT Governance in 5 to 10 years? - To try to establish accountabilities. - Make sure that agreements exist between parties (across the ecosystem) - Help shape the new (temporary) world. How will COBIT need to change to meet information and information technology governance in 5 to 10 years? - I am not convinced COBIT as such will still exist in 10 years time. - COBIT needs to re-invent itself or be overtaken by some new approach. - New approach needs to reflect and allow "grey areas" and much more agile world. - In the next 2-3 years COBIT just needs to switch emphasis away from organisation and processes and move into a "service" based model. Regards Mark
