Information Technology Governance (ITG) in Nigeria A Case Study at University of Nigeria, Nsukka
Keywords:Information Technology Governance, Performance Index, Statistical Simulation, Weighted, Control Objectives for Information Technology (Cobit), Framework, Balanced Scorecard, metrics
This work studied the performance of Information Technology Governance (ITG) at University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), by comparing the state of its Information Technology(IT) Infrastructure, Available Human resources and Management Structure to that of University of Queensland, Australia (USQ), which is taken to be operating at International standard. By means of data collection and statistical simulation, these three fundamental aspects of Information Technology were measured and the results obtained were weighted alongside with those of University of Queensland. The results show that at UNN; IT Infrastructure, Management Structure and available Human resources rated 23.03%, 50.31% and 25.9% respectively as against University of Queensland. Using these values, the performance of IT governance at UNN was cumulatively found to be 24.61% of the International standard. This rating based on international performance rating scale showed that the performance of ITG at UNN is yet at a poor state.
