Webinar Kick-off: How to professionalize Shadow IT in your business?

“Many CIO’s consider Shadow IT in their organization an unknown and unpredictable risk. Fact is, Shadow IT exists in every organization, if you think yours doesn’t, you probably haven't looked hard enough”, WEM CEO Rob Schilperoort explains. “The only solution to this problem is to improve the ongoing collaboration and communication between IT and the business so that the possibility of a surprise is minimized”, Donna Fitzgerald, Research Vice President at Gartner argues.

Shadow IT – devices, software, services – not sanctioned by or in control of your centralized IT department is a common trend within enterprises. In fact, Gartner predicts that through 2017, 38% of technology purchases will be managed, defined and controlled by business leaders.

“Most organizations underestimate the number of shadow IT applications in use”, WEM Expert Vincent Martini explained in our previous blog on Shadow IT. In case these services are unauthorized or ignored in your business, risks of data breaches and financial liabilities are increased.

This first webinar will deep dive into the pro's of enabling and guiding Shadow IT versus attempting to prohibit it. Pick one of the following time slots to join this session – Free of charge:
