Abstract: IT governance is critical to the success of Enterprise governance by providing effective, efficient and measurable improvements in business processes by ensuring that information technologies are in line with business objectives. Consequently, this paper provides an intelligent solution to audit Information System Business processes using the IT Governance Framework COBIT. The particularity of this solution is the use of Inter-organization Workflows (IOW), Multi-agent System and semantic web. In fact Inter-Organizational Workflow is used to cooperate autonomous, heterogeneous and distributed organizations processes to reach a common goal. In this paper case the goal is the dynamic alignment of every Business Process with the convenient Information System component and this through a permanent interaction with different stockholders. Multi-agent Systems (MAS) are known as the natural solution for IOW modeling since they provide dynamic modification and execution of adaptive processes. In addition, MAS have the ability to describe distribution and coordination of IOW organizations in micro and macro level, with high level communication protocols. As for the semantic web, the proposed IT Governance IOW based on COBIT, has the principal role to match Enterprise real Business Goals with COBIT Business goals , so the use of the semantic web is a way to share business terminology and avoid semantic conflict for a correct and efficient Audit operation.
