Enterprise GenAI Governance Framework Offers Deep, Robust Expertise for Responsible GenAI Implementation

Boomi, the intelligent integration and automation leader, and Connor Group, a leading specialized professional services firm, are unveiling the Enterprise GenAI Governance Framework, a detailed guide and methodology for educating enterprises of all sizes on GenAI readiness, risk, and ethics. A product of the expertise of over 1,000 business leaders, academics, and industry bodies, the Enterprise GenAI Governance Framework aims to provide a structural, responsible approach for implementing AI as its popularity continues to grow.

The Enterprise GenAI Governance Framework is a customizable, robust guide for aligning GenAI adoption with an organization’s unique objectives and needs. The framework helps enterprises:

  • Evaluate their AI-readiness
  • Identify and manage enterprise risks associated with GenAI
  • Adopt GenAI responsibly
  • Pinpoint vulnerability and implement controls

“Effective AI adoption will be a massive competitive advantage, but many don’t know where to start and how to apply it,” said Jeff Pickett, chair and founder at Connor Group. “A few AI tools exist now, with many on the way, and they are coming fast. Having a smart AI adoption strategy with underlying controls, data, and processes that are ready for AI takes time. The most competitive companies are doing these things now.”

The Enterprise GenAI Governance Framework offers specific value for teams tasked with risk management and governance—including processes such as Internal Audit, IT/CISO, Legal, and Audit Committees—with the ability to proactively surface, evaluate, and respond to high-priority issues.

"At Boomi, we understand the power of clarity and action. The Enterprise GenAI Governance Framework, which I had the privilege to help shape, epitomizes that by providing a one-page summary ideal for boardroom discussions, alongside a detailed breakdown of controls for practical implementation,” said Waseem Samaan, chief audit and risk officer at Boomi. “It’s designed not only to be adopted but also to be adapted, allowing companies to assess their compliance and maturity, identifying areas of strength and opportunities for improvement. We’re proud to be among the first to implement and champion a tool that so effectively bridges the gap between strategic oversight and operational excellence."

The strengths of the Enterprise GenAI Governance Framework can be further enhanced with the GenAI Governance Framework Maturity Model, a maturity model developed to enable businesses to evaluate their existing governance practices and plan for future improvements.

“Overall, the GenAI Governance Framework and accompanying Maturity Model serve as essential resources for organizations seeking to navigate the evolving landscape of AI,” said David A. Wood, professor at Brigham Young University Marriott School and one of the collaborators of the framework. “By adopting these tools, organizations can enhance their preparedness, resilience, and capability to harness the benefits of AI while effectively managing its risks.”

The Enterprise GenAI Governance Framework is available as a free resource by Connor Group.
