What the CoBIT framework does is establish minimal guidelines for data center operational documentation -as distinct from the actual operation.
The thing that's most striking about the "heavy lifting" carried out by the typical zSeries based data center in 2006? There have been changes in execution, but not in role or overall management methods, since the 1920s - thus what we see today is the same old same old, just done a bit differently.
An introduction to the "human resources" component of the typical data processing center we've been exploring.
This is a purely text based tour of a data processing center - note the acronyms used to distance staff from users and the heavy reliance on secrecy and sharp job boundaries.
The controls that developed around the 360 environment were all predicated on the primary concerns expressed by Finance management: that nothing interrupt processing critical to Finance. Thus virtually all of them derive from, or are subsidiary to, the service level agreement.
"Information engineering." had nothing to do with engineering, but tried to use the PC to draw, store, and link models of complex applications and auto-generate some of the COBOL code needed to implement the models using database products like IMS.
CICS and IMS, IBM's two of IBM's three original software products are still going strong - and so is the culture that adopted them in 1969.
COBOL reflects 1920s data processing methods - and because the IBM 360 implemented COBOL it became the foundation for an entire worldview - a culture founded entirely on a refusal to adapt to external change: in technology, in the mission, in anything.
The nature of data processing is to be long winded, boring, and dominated by acronyms derived from long gone technologies and business practices.
