What We Do
A comprehensive toolkit for organizations wishing to reference, adopt and align with COBIT 5 IT governance best practices
Benefit from a predefined COBIT 5 meta-model that is structured according to the five principles of COBIT, ensuring familiarity, ease of navigation and traceability of governance content in your repository. The central repository makes it easy to align with COBIT compliance requirements and leverages a single framework for managing risk.
Central Governance Repository
All governance-related information can be centrally managed and referenced from iServer’s central governance repository, providing data consistency and a single source of truth for all COBIT 5 governance-related information.
COBIT 5 Governance Principles
The iServer governance repository is structured according to the COBIT 5 Framework Principles. The COBIT 5 Base Framework is centered on five main governance and management principles. The iServer repository is arranged along a clear folder structure to mirror these, with each principle broken down into more detailed guidance and best practices.
COBIT 5 Meta-Model
iServer structures COBIT 5 according to a predefined meta-model. This enables users to understand the structure for all governance content and is flexible to allow customizations and further extensions. The meta-model reuses aligned concepts from TOGAF 9.1 business architecture meta-model and the TOGAF 9.1 governance extension. It can also be adapted to align with the ArchiMate notation. This meta-model is preconfigured in the repository, including all object types and relationships defined in the COBIT 5 specification.
Bespoke COBIT 5 Notation
COBIT 5 does not provide a modeling notation as part of its specification. As such, Orbus Software has developed iServer to offer a bespoke COBIT 5 modeling notation to describe the meta-model.
COBIT 5 Specification Content Analysis
iServer facilitates the quick and easy generation of Views to further day to day governance practice. This includes hierarchy views of the COBIT 5 Goals Cascade to easily analyze interrelationships between key components in the COBIT specification, as well as catalogs of components such as enterprise and IT-related goals.
