Abstract [en]

Today Information Technology (IT) can be found in every modern enterprise. As IT has become one of the most crucial parts of an enterprise, it has made management aware of the impact IT has on the success of the enterprise. This has led to a significant increase on IT investments. IT governance aims at assuring that IT delivers more value from IT investments and enforcing IT‟s role as a business enabler.

AB Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL) is a government owned company that is responsible for the general transportation system in the municipality of Stockholm.

This master thesis aims at assessing the IT organization at SL from an IT governance perspective. The purpose of such assessment is to identify problem areas and suggest measures for improvement. The IT governance framework COBIT (Control Objectives for Information and related Technology) has guided the theory for IT governance throughout this study. A framework for the assessment of the IT governance maturity at SL was developed based on the IT Organization Model Assessment Tool (ITOMAT), a formalized method for assessing the IT governance maturity.

The IT governance maturity of SL obtained the score 2,68 out of 5,00. Considering the fact that SL started with the process of introducing IT governance to the organization as recent as 3 years ago, the result obtained is higher than expected. It indicates that significant progress has been achieved in their IT governance.

Nevertheless, the organization still has great potential for improvement.
