IT Governance Qualifications

The Importance of IT Governance Qualifications

IT governance is a key component of corporate governance and is at the heart of strategic IT management in all successful organisations. The need for a closer alliance of business objectives with IT resources, a better return on investment and the need for compliance to standards are all significant drivers to ensuring that information technology truly delivers competitive advantage. Senior managers and consultants who advise on IT governance are much in demand in organisations throughout the world.

Founded in 2011, the International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ) was setup to help improve and standardise the range and quality of training for IT governance professionals. The organisation is a not-for profit association incorporated under German law and has been developed by a number of leading IT governance professionals and organisations.
