Now let's talk about I t related design factors
00:04
in this video, we're going to talk about I T related design factors
00:08
or the role of I t. The sourcing model of I T. And I T implementation methods.
00:16
Another design factor, Corbett mentions, is the role of I t.
00:20
The role of it depends on the business itself, like its culture, the industry, business missions, goals and objectives. It's people etcetera.
00:29
An example of what roles that I t plays within an organization would be something like support or strategic.
00:36
If I t is a support within your business, it means it's not crucial for business processes or innovation or to realize business objectives. And that's important to note when designing your I T governance program.
00:48
On the other hand, if I t plays a strategic role in your enterprise, meaning it's critical for running, innovating and for business processes, services and objectives, that's an important design factor that should be included.
01:02
Another example of the role it plays is a turnaround rolled role, or I t is seen as a driver for innovating business processes and services.
01:11
However, there isn't a critical dependency on I t. For running and continuity of business processes and services,
01:19
so make sure to evaluate the role that it plays in your enterprise.
01:23
This will help designing your I T governance program.
01:26
Kobe is a customizable framework that works with your organization, so this is an important factor when designing your program
01:34
for a more strategic role. Your governance framework will need to be more hands on and extensive as to pose as opposed to a nightie plays more of a supporting role.
01:44
So what role does it play in your organization?
01:51
Another design factors theatrical sourcing model of i T.
01:55
There are different sourcing methods that organizations use when it comes to I t.
01:59
Let's go through some examples of I t. Source models.
02:01
Is your I t outsourced.
02:04
Meaning? Do you have a third party managing, implementing and supporting your I T. Resource is
02:09
Do you have cloud vendors that manage your applications? Data, etcetera.
02:14
Do you have your own I T staff and services? Meaning is it insourced or do you have more of a hybrid model
02:22
depending on your sourcing model of I T.
02:24
Then you will need to design your governance program differently.
02:28
If if you outsource your I t. Then you don't need to have in source objectives and processes, and vice versa.
02:35
You don't wanna have something that's irrelevant if your I T is primarily outsourced.
02:39
This design factor is crucial when designing and creating your governance program.
02:49
Another design factor that you should take into account for your governance program is I t implementation methods.
02:55
There are different types of implementation methods that organizations utilize,
03:00
For example, an organization that requires a fast turnaround to the market and is very customer oriented. You may have an agile implementation method,
03:09
a traditional implementation method or waterfall, maybe a method for an organization that is heavily regulated.
03:16
So it really depends on your organization, industry, work, culture, etcetera.
03:22
So this is important to take into account as a design factor.
03:25
Corbett mentions that this is an important design factor because it will affect how your eat I T re sources are implemented and how they're used.
03:35
Consequently, it will affect your governance program and the overall management of I t Resource is to ensure it aligns with business goals, strategies and culture.
03:47
In this video, we talked about the role of I t. The sourcing model of I T and I T implementation methods as design factors
