IT-CMF is a holistic framework that follows the following four steps in an effort to improve IT performance:
  • Managing IT like a Business: Shifts technology focus to clients and services
  • Managing IT Budget: Invests in solutions for better value
  • Managing IT Capability: Identifies core competencies and manages IT skills throughout the value cycle
  • Managing IT for Business Value: Links IT investments to overall business value
IT-CMF classifies 36 basic procedures within these four strategies, including all IT department roles. An enterprise’s key maturity issues and value-creation potential are revealed via the evaluation of an IT company’s maturity based on these 36 procedures, in addition to industry benchmark and best practice comparisons.
