The article presents author's perspectives concerning the capability of Control Objectives for Information and related Technology (COBIT) to help credit crunch within information technology (IT) sectors. The author believes that COBIT can be used to show current maturity levels and to prepare targets for cost reduction. He argues that it may require some efforts to solve the problem, but the effort will likely be the way to save money and increase business value. Additionally, though COBIT, it may also provide a good start to get IT governance moving in the enterprise.
