Shadow IT .. the frenemy ?

We hear a lot about ‘shadow IT’ like it’s some sort of sinister underground movement but for many business people it makes perfect sense .  I can find a cloud-based tool for most of the functions I need to do my job. Designed for mobile/cloud usage, user-friendly, designed around service prinicples, low or free pricing, self-administered, nil support requirements.

For many IT people it’s a genie that needs to go back in the bottle.  Leave apart the human factor around lack of control there are legitimate concerns about corporate data security, fragmentation etc


Whatever your personal stance I thought this article summed it up nicely  Shadow IT is here to stay – Deal With It
