OverSight is a start-up operation in South Africa focusing exclusively on assisting Boards of Directors and Executive Management IDENTIFY and DELIVER VALUE from Information Technology.
We have listened to Directors and Executive Management, who have told us that they:
- Don’t understand information Technology;
- Don’t know how to Maximise the Value from IT;
- Don’t cope with constantly changing IT; and
- Don’t feel comfortable governing IT,
and yet All Board Members have fiduciary duties to protect the interests of all their Stakeholders.
We address this ‘Directors Dilemma’ by providing a comprehensive framework (incorporating Value, Risk, Compliance, Security, Sustainability, Organisation, Strategy, Operations, Control, Maturity Assessment, and Performance Measurement & Reporting); a robust and complete library of processes; an extensive catalogue of products & services; and a group of very competent subject matter experts.
Our goal is designed to support Directors and Executive management AND Chief Information Officers and IT Management (and their primary advisors, both internal and external) both to understand what are the key IT Value Drivers and to demonstrate how value can be achieved.
We do this through our two companies; OverSight Solutions (Pty) Ltd and OverSight Services (Pty) Ltd.
