The study was commissioned by ISACA to explore and demonstrate the business value of implementing the COBIT and Val IT frameworks.
Implementing these frameworks is perceived as costly and complex but the research shows that it does ultimately create business value. This study revealed that:
- A strong, positive relationship exists between the implementation status of COBIT and Val IT processes and the achievement of IT goals - the more complete the implementation of these processes, the higher the achievement of IT goals
- A strong, positive relationship exists between the achievement of IT goals and the achievement of business goals - the higher the achievement of IT goals, the higher the achievement of business goals.
