Corporate IT failing to meet employee needs
"IT departments need to reassess the technology they deliver, given that users are circumventing corporate IT and using their own applications in preference to those supported by their employer.
A TNS survey of 2,016 people by Trustmarque found that 40% of cloud users admitted to using applications that have not been sanctioned or provided by their organisation.
Significantly, many of the unsanctioned applications used by employees, such as Evernote and Dropbox, are designed to increase productivity and improve collaboration.
While such software generally infringes IT security compliance, users prefer the ease with which documents can be shared.
In fact, the survey found that a significant number of cloud users – some 27% – are turning to these applications because corporate IT is failing to meet their needs.”
