The assessment of COBIT process maturity levels for each COBIT process is fraught with many problems regarding the objectivity of the end result. This paper attempts to align the generic aspects of the COBIT 4.1 process maturity scale with the concepts of the Process Attributes of the ISO/IEC 15504-2 measurement scale. The goal behind this alignment attempt is to be able to automatically convert ISO/IEC 15504 assessment profile data captured for processes into their equivalent COBIT process maturity rating, to identify where there is no equivalent process assessment data and to propose how these gaps might be overcome. The end result of this computation of COBIT process maturity levels is to be able to assert that the assessed level is traceable to objective underlying assessment profile data gathered and rated according to the normative requirements of ISO/IEC 15504-2.
