Djilpmh Pi has been observing and making note of how Shadow IT has proliferated in many areas, and some of the most egregious examples are presented in his book "Shadow IT". While he does support the idea that "there are no stupid questions" he draws the line at "you can do that now?". Well yeah! Instead the question should be framed: is it bad or dangerous to me, how can I stop it, and what needs to be done to head off these situations in the future? Each type of Shadow IT is briefly described, suggestions on how to block it, and some observations to provide context and further background. Hint: company leadership needs to actively guide the vision and direction of how technology will be used, instead of forcing workers and developers creating and using new and innovative products and services to fight with traditional IT and security groups. If that wasted energy were put to collaborative effort everyone could benefit.
