What to think of the ISACA acquisition of CMMI?

I'm not sure what to think of ISACA's acquisition of the CMMI Institute. I don't see it addressing their major issue of failure to expand constituency. What are your views?

Copyright issues when using ITIL at the coalface

Axelos are shooting themselves in the foot by constraining consultants' use of ITIL.

ISACA's strategy and missed opportunity

ITIL Intellectual Property under the new Axelos regime

Axelos has published Intellectual Property (copyright and trademark) guidance for ITIL, PRINCE2 and the rest of the "Swirl suite". Unintelligible Property guidance, more like.

Where's the COBIT 5 training?

Here we go again. COBIT 5 is hot: the industry itches to get using it. APMG is signed up to roll out the training programme. The ITIL V3 training courses faced a similar situation a few years back.

Breaking news: APMG to accredit COBIT5 training industry. Fort COBIT?

In a press release today, ISACA announced

Four new COBIT 5 training courses will be launched over the next five months as the result of a new partnership between ISACA and APMG-International.


COBIT5 is a very very important development for the IT industry. It deserves more attention. It may even be The Next Big Thing.
