Weill and Ross (2004) pointed out that enterprises which are leaders in business performance usually get 40% higher returns on their IT investments than do their competitors. The success of these enterprises lies in the implementation of effective IT governance to support and extend their strategies and goals. Using empirical methods, we verified the existence of significant correlations between IT management and IT governance. We also further discuss the influence of these relationships on the enterprise. Our results reveal that IT management correlates significantly and positively with the maturity level of IT governance on all four dimensions included in the study. Additionally, with a higher level of IT management, an enterprise will obtain a higher level of IT governance, making the enterprise more competitive.
