dc.description.abstract ERP applications have evolved into enterprise-wide applications, which are generally acknowledged today as a critical component in an organisation’s information strategy. When implementing an ERP application, the control and governance of all IT processes are critical to ensure that value is delivered, risks are managed and that the investment in IT (ERP) delivers a reasonable return. It should, therefore, be important to focus on mitigating IT process risks that have an impact on the ERP environment, so that the level of residual risk is acceptable and aligned with the business objectives. This assignment focuses on using the generally accepted IT framework, COBIT (Control Objectives for Information and related Technology), as governance and control model. The criticality of each COBIT control objective (IT process) is evaluated by applying the COBIT control objectives in an ERP environment. Specific reference is also made to Qmuzik as an ERP application. By applying COBIT in an ERP environment, the most critical IT processes applicable to ERP are identified, in order to ensure that the minimum process controls for these IT processes are designed and implemented. en_ZA
