Val IT

Val IT is a governance framework including generally accepted guiding principles and supporting processes related to the evaluation and selection of IT-enabled business investments, and benefit realization and delivery of value from those investments.

The Val IT framework is based on the COBIT framework. To obtain a return on investment, the Val IT principles are applied to management processes including value governance, portfolio management, and investment management. The Val IT framework will be supported by publications and operational tools and provides guidance to:

  • Define the relationship between IT and the business and those functions in the organization with governance responsibilities;
  • Manage an organization's portfolio of IT-enabled business investments; and
  • Maximize the quality of business cases for IT-enabled business investments with particular emphasis on the definition of key financial indicators, the quantification of "soft" benefits and the comprehensive appraisal of the downside risk

Val IT addresses assumptions, costs, risks and outcomes related to a balanced portfolio of IT-enabled business investments. It also provides benchmarking capability and allows enterprises to exchange experiences on best practices for value management.
