Abstract [en]

IT governance is the strategic alignment of IT with the business such that maximum business value is achieved through the development and maintenance of effective IT control and accountability, performance management and risk management. The aim with IT governance is to reach maximum benefit of IT investments. Three main strategies could be defined: centralized, decentralized or federal IT governance, where the latter could be seen as a centralized organization with some decentralized decision capabilities. What kind of IT governance strategies are used for the maintenance IT support? This paper reports on IT governance strategies used in Swedish industry based on cluster analysis of variables connected to systems ownership, IT investment decision, and participation in the procurement process. Three strategies were found: a decentralized where maintenance drives the investment decision, participates in the procurement and owns the system, a centralized where the decision is made by upper management, where maintenance is not participating in the procurement, but where maintenance owns the system, and a third where production makes the investment decision, the IT owns the system and maintenance is participating in the procurement. The last strategy could be seen as a kind of federal governance strategy. In further nonparametric tests three variables indicated significant differences between these strategies: use of CMMS, apprehended alignment of IT to business needs, and future user involvement in the purchasing. The decentralized strategy differed from the centralized with respect to apprehended alignment of IT to business needs and the federal differed from the decentralized in all the three variables. No significant differences were found between the federal and the central strategy.
