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
