About COBIT 2019 certification
ISACA developed COBIT, an IT governance and management framework. COBIT is not a prescriptive approach to IT Management. It provides a process for creating bespoke IT frameworks that optimize IT operations and prioritize strategic goals. These are based on a variety of Governance Objectives and Management Objectives that each company can focus on to suit its specific needs. COBIT can be used to accommodate other frameworks and approaches such as ITIL 4 or DevOps. This makes it an attractive option for any organization that relies upon IT.
