Shadow IT? It's Not As Scary As It Sounds
This week’s episode of the Tricerat IT Time podcast features James Quigley, CEO of Canvas and frequent TechCrunch contributor. James recently wrote a piece on the growing utilization of Shadow IT that caught our eye, so we were thrilled to have him join us to dig further into the concept.
Let’s Take a Look Back.
Years ago, when quick advances in technology were a ‘nice-to-have’ and not a necessity; organizations weren’t sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for the next release. James mentions, “there wasn’t somebody who would disrupt your business in six-month’s time if you didn’t deploy the right technology.” Things were released slower. IT departments had more time to evaluate products and software.
The role of the IT admin is changing into a larger role managing data rather than just tools and hardware. The shifts are inevitable, it’s now up to organizations to get on board!
