Introduction to ICT Governance
For any business – from small to global – the governance of Information Technology (IT) and management of risk are not only top priorities, they are also legal and social commitments. At BCX, our Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Governance Services are focused on aligning your company’s ICT capability – IT systems, performance, compliance, and risk management – to your business investment choices. We adopt an integrated approach in which our team of experts in ICT Governance work with business managers, IT managers, strategic planners, and risk managers from your team, so that you can optimise the effects of business improvement programmes.
What is ICT Governance?
When you implement an ICT Governance policy, the goal is to align IT decision-making processes with your organisation’s strategic objectives, and at the same time integrate good practices. IT Governance enables you to take full advantage of your information, to maximise benefits, capitalise on opportunities and ultimately, gain a competitive advantage.
BCX works closely with your business to assess IT processes and risks, and then design and implement governance structures. We achieve this by defining and improving IT processes, and allocating roles and responsibilities according to industry best-practice. We create policies, strategies and plans to support the governance structure, and our expertise includes various aspects of an ICT Governance project, such as directing and monitoring, planning and organising, acquiring and implementing, delivering and supporting, and monitoring and evaluating IT performance.
