Shadow IT - a Threat or a Benefit?

Shadow IT - a threat or a benefit?

Acceptable practice or unacceptable risk?

Shadow IT is the practice of using technology within a business without the knowledge or approval of the IT function.

This includes anything from a single employee using a low-cost app, to an entire department, such as Project Management, adopting a cloud software application to support its Line of Business (LoB).

For some, this is an acceptable practice and a necessity to achieve the business objectives at hand. For others, it is wholly unacceptable and poses a serious threat to the organisation.

There is a strong case to be made to support both views. However, is one more valid than the other?
