Today, apps are hosted everywhere – in public and private clouds and in enterprise data centres. Employees often sign up for numerous apps, without any official IT department sanction or involvement, behaving like a shadow IT department, sprawling corporate data all over the cloud. Keeping a grip on which apps are holding business critical data is challenging, as is data governance and ensuring those apps deliver consistent business benefits.
The statistics speak for themselves: -
Seven in ten workers in the UK are using cloud technologies that are not managed or supervised by their company.
Nearly three in four organisations have no idea which “unofficial” apps are running on their IT infrastructure.
