During recent years IT governance has become more complex and strategically important because of business technology (BT) — a trend by which technology is changing from an enabler to an integrated, pervasive element of the business, increasingly managed by stakeholders outside IT's direct control.
In many organizations, the BT trend drives business strategies that leverage smart technologies — such as mobile devices, Internet apps, social networks, cloud models, analytics, and business process management (BPM) — for competitive advantage. Because the management of these technologies requires IT capabilities that are different from what many organizations are used to, business executives and CIOs need to revisit their organization's practices of IT governance and adjust them to the new management realities of the BT world.
