Me and My Shadow: IT Gone Rogue
June 14, 2012
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
As if cloud computing weren’t disruptive enough, there’s a force lurking outside traditional IT: ‘Shadow IT’ or, worse, “Rogue IT”. The experts have a lot to say: THINKstrategies’ Jeff Kaplan: “Most CXOs don’t know how many SaaS/Cloud apps are being used in their organizations.” SAP’s Greg Chase: “What is new is consumerization of IT, or really, IT-ization of the consumer – basically we’re all digital natives now. Individuals are making their own IT choices to get their work done.” SuccessFactors’ Paul Stuker: “The cost of Rogue IT is tiny compared to the hidden cost of non-secure, non-available mission-critical applications.” Consultant Steve Romero: “Business users have been ‘going around’ corporate IT for years. IT needs to accept and embrace shadow IT – and leverage it to foster a collaborative relationship with the business.” Join us for more insights on Me and My Shadow: IT Gone Rogue. p.s.
