Abstract

The goals of every organisation are unique. As a result, it is difficult to find a single Information Technology (IT) governance framework that will embrace functions of every organisation. This is attributed to the primary reason why organisations tend to select various (multiple) IT governance frameworks, for your processes and activities. However, many organisations later realised that some of the frameworks are very similar (duplications), and others are inappropriate. This evidently and inevitably cause complexities, and negatively impact return on investment in organisations. This highlights the need for an architectural framework which guides the selection and implementation of an appropriate framework, as presented and discussed in this paper. The qualitative, case study and interpretive method and approach were followed in conducting this research, which was to develop an architectural framework for the implementation of IT governance in the organisations. A South African organisation was used as a case, focusing on the IT division. The data collection method presented in this research was semi-structured interviews. Through a framework, the paper presents and discusses the fundamental factors, which influences the selection and implementation of IT governance in organisations. The factors include organisational needs, managing, assessment and innovation. These factors are influenced and do interacts with other tenets, which include adherence, competitiveness and sustainability, training and education, governance and compliance.
