Over the past few years, the implementation of IT governance concept has increasingly gained the attention of the Romanian companies’ senior management. IT governance is a comprehensive term that encompasses IT processes, IT resources, information, business and legal issues, and all concerns stakeholders, senior management, process owners, users, auditors and suppliers. Furthermore, the implementation of IT governance, driven by best practices, ensures that the IT function adds value to the company while balancing risks versus return. The purpose of the research is to analyze the degree of perception, acceptance, implementation and maturity level of IT governance at the level of Romanian companies. Moreover, it offers a comparative analysis between the Romanian results and the worldwide level data published by the IT Governance Institute. This institute is interested in all issues related to IT Governance and has developed a database of opinions, facts and statistics on the aforementioned subject. The research is focused on determining the perception on the importance of IT to the business, the IT governance accountability, the outcome of IT, the most used frameworks for implementing IT governance, and a self-assessment of the IT governance maturity level for the Romanian companies.
