A framework for alignment and governance COBIT is an IT management framework developed by the ISACA to help businesses develop, organize and implement strategies around information management and governance. What is COBIT?
Essentially, IT governance provides a structure for aligning IT strategy with business strategy. By following a formal framework, organizations can produce measurable results toward achieving their strategies and goals.
Most IT governance frameworks are designed to help you determine how your IT department is functioning overall, what key metrics management needs and what return IT is giving back to the business from its investments. Where COBIT and COSO are used mainly for risk, ITIL helps to streamline service and operations.
