Internal IT organizations are under increasing pressure to meet the business goals of their companies. This challenge can be particularly daunting because it involves complying with regulations, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and Basel II. Compliance requires strong corporate governance capabilities that are demonstrable to outside auditors. Because IT plays such a major role in business processes, the IT organization not only creates complexity for the business, but at the same time, provides the means to demonstrate this compliance.
Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology (COBIT®) provides good practices across a domain and process framework. It presents activities in a manageable and logical structure. They are strongly focused on control and less on execution. These practices will help optimize IT-enabled investments, ensure service delivery and provide a measure against which to judge when things do go wrong.
SoftExpert offers the most advanced and comprehensive software solution for compliance management that meets the stringent needs of COBIT®. SoftExpert Excellence Suite (SE Suite) helps companies follow the regulation, while lowering the costs of compliance, maximizing success, increasing productivity and reducing risks.
SoftExpert’s solutions enables organizations to easily follow COBIT®, providing resources to manage processes, audits, risks, calibrations, maintenance, projects, quality records, boosting organizational efficiency, reducing rework and waste.
