The Balancing Act of Shadow IT: Enabling Automation and Citizen Development Within a Secure IT Environment
CIOs and the technology department are constantly in a difficult position. Business operators within the organization have increased need to optimize and automate their work, but there are far too many initiatives for IT to support alone. In that space comes shadow initiatives, where IT has no oversight and often any knowledge. Trying to maintain an efficient, secure network with these blind spots has the potential to become a compliance, privacy, and security nightmare.
Being a good partner within the business means balancing these concerns. We want to talk with industry leaders about this topic, including questions like:
• Right now, how concerned is your department about the level of shadow IT?
• How do you balance open innovation against security and control?
• What can make a more successful citizen development initiative?
• How can IT leaders get ahead of automation initiatives and become the proactive hero?
