Despite the problems, IT governance has often not an important priority in the planning of Hamburg, 09.07.2008 – the corporate and IT strategies are only slightly interlocked in most cases. The lack of organizational structures for a close cooperation between business and information technology are background according to a study of hamburger management consultancy Retromolar GmbH. A significant change is however not to expect. More information is housed here: Paul Ostling. Because most of the nearly 300 IT executives questioned in larger companies pursue the topic of governance in their plans with any high priority. According to the survey 13% a very narrow and another 18 percent is a close coordination between the business and IT alignment.

However, only a mediocre interaction between business and IT exists in two out of five cases. Even worse, it looks at the rest of the companies: there derive the it strategies either only in small size (21 percent) or not (7 per cent) from the market-related business strategies from. A central Cause can be found according to the Retromolar study in lack of organizational structures for close cooperation. They are called only every fourth managers functional, 37% rate it as inadequate. But also the other respondents give no good marks the organisation conditions for strategic voting in their company and rate them as only partly functional. If no constant mutual transfer of basic positions, objectives and action concepts is secured, there is necessarily contradictions in the business and IT strategies”, judge Retromolar CEO Peter Bodino. A traditional indication problem was that the companies will not meet this requirement.

So little there is on the need for business-IT alignment doubt, so on the alignment of IT to the core objectives and processes of the alignment of competition, so little for it work in practice, although the difficulties are discussed over and over again.” And apparently IT managers increasingly to resign, since only a few the theme of IT governance front set their agenda. Apart from the 23 percent who see no need for action currently only every seventh respondents in the near future wants to attach higher importance to him. Another 29 percent of a hesitant intention in this respect, a third will take provisionally even no special efforts to private confession in terms of IT governance. “Bodino sees however no alternative to an offensive alignment and warns: despite all the problems IT managers must close eye to comply, because you otherwise run the risk that they lose in the medium term the design order here”. He therefore advocated instead to sit out the theme, the effort to develop of a practical IT governance model and increase it gradually to establish. IT will be faced in the future anyway more than ever with the question, contribution value she contributes to the success of the business.” That’s why it makes sense for self-interest alone, committed to the organizational prerequisites for adequate cooperation between IT and the business areas to seek.

This has advantages. Unfortunately but also the disadvantage that we should find several thousand measures and implement in a medium-sized IT network (20 to 30 items); many of the 1300 BSI measures multiple lists various target objects. But now there are remedies. In opus i, we have realized the risk assessment and risk treatment for all 650 BSI basic protection hazards and allow the user the 1300 BSI measures after his to consider acceptance of risk. He determined from its risk perspective (risk appetite), which risks unacceptable ALARP or are acceptable and automatically – click – a risk treatment plan to the risks and Measures. How goes it? We create the risk analysis in five steps, where only the first four are necessary: probability set 1, damage set 2, 3.

risk matrix with the mouse capture, the BSI hazards according to (1) and (2) classify 4…. as far as the necessary steps. This risk analysis, we put on the IT network and opus i created the risk treatment plan with a mouse click. This risk treatment plan is the basis for the PDCA cycle.
