In the COBIT 2019 Bridge Foundation course, you will learn the differences between COBIT 5 and COBIT 2019 in just one day. The globally recognized COBIT Framework, the leader in ensuring effective and strategic enterprise governance of information and technology (EGIT), has been updated with new information and guidance—facilitating easier, tailored implementation
Effective governance over information and technology is critical to business success, and this new release further cements COBIT’s continuing role as an important driver of innovation and business transformation. COBIT 2019 is an evolution of the previous version, COBIT 5, building on its solid foundation by adding the latest developments affecting enterprise information and technology.
Over the years, best-practice frameworks have been developed and promoted to assist in the process of understanding, designing and implementing enterprise governance of IT (EGIT). COBIT 2019 builds on and integrates more than 25 years of development in this field, not only incorporating new insights from science, but also operationalizing these insights as practice.
The heart of the COBIT framework updates COBIT principles while laying out the structure of the overall framework.
- New concepts are introduced and terminology is explained—the COBIT Core Model and its 40 governance and management objectives provide the platform for establishing your governance program
- The performance management system is updated and allows the flexibility to use maturity measurements as well as capability measurements
- Introductions to design factors and focus areas offer additional practical guidance on flexible adoption of COBIT 2019, whether for specific projects or full implementation
From its foundation in the IT audit community, COBIT has developed into a broader and more comprehensive information and technology (I&T) governance and management framework and continues to establish itself as a generally accepted framework for I&T governance.
COBIT is a framework for the governance and management of enterprise information and technology, aimed at the whole enterprise. Enterprise IT means all the technology and information processing the enterprise puts in place to achieve its goals, regardless of where this happens in the enterprise. In other words, enterprise IT is not limited to the IT department of an organization, but certainly includes it. COBIT defines the components to build and sustain a governance system: processes, organizational structures, policies and procedures, information flows, culture and behaviours, skills, and infrastructure.
