Organisational Placement of the IT Function

Place the IT function in the overall organisational structure with a business model contingent on the importance of IT within the enterprise, specifically its criticality to business strategy and the level of operational dependence on IT. The reporting line of the chief information officer (CIO) should be commensurate with the importance of IT within the enterprise.

Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Determine that the IT function is headed by a CIO or similar function, of which the authority, responsibility, accountability and reporting line are commensurate with the importance of IT within the enterprise.
  2. Define and fund the IT function in such a way that individual user group departments cannot exert undue influence over the IT function and undermine the priorities agreed upon by the IT steering committee.
  3. Ensure that the IT function is appropriately resourced (e.g., staffing, contingent workers, budget) to enable the implementation and management of appropriate IT solutions and services to support the business and enable relationships with the business.
