Unmanaged applications and shadow IT can create significant challenges for your organization:

  • Increased security concerns and not being compliant with regulations.

  • Build business-IT trust by empowering the business to implement their own applications on stable and reliable platforms.
  • Clarify the ownership of your applications and who makes key application decisions.
  • Develop the right framework to fit the characteristics of each application.
