The darkside of Shadow IT

Employees creating and using their own IT solutions without the permission - known as Shadow IT - is on the rise and unless managed properly it represents a covert risk to companies.

Shadow IT is IT activity that occurs outside of IT. Shadow IT is growing in many organisations driven by consumerised technology, mobility, the availability of cloud solutions and quite frankly relatively slow cycle times within captive IT organisations.

How do you control or eliminate shadow IT is a frequent question raised by CIOs and IT professionals.

The question and the desired answer say a lot about IT, much of it not good.
