Turning Shadow IT Into Collaborative IT: Discuss on Interop Radio

NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Shadow IT, the use of unauthorized applications and services, can make tech pros cringe. But what if shadow IT is an opportunity to be embraced rather than a problem to stamp out?

Rather than shut down an unauthorized app, Comstock's approach is to find ways that IT can help make the application more suitable, such as getting teams on a single instance, negotiating prices, and ensuring that confidential data gets protected. He'll discuss this approach and more during today's show.

In addition to his appearance on Interop Radio, Comstock is slated to speak at the 2014 Interop conference in New York City, which kicks off September 29 and runs through October 3, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

The Interop conference offers a unique opportunity to help you connect with your IT colleagues, help your career take off, and learn how technology is changing the way business is done. You can find more information about Interop New York and the show speakers, as well as the registration page, here.
