TYSONS CORNER, VA August 25, 2015 — Scott Gaydos, chief technologist for the U.S. public sector business at Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ), has urged information technology officers in government to examine how shadow IT could be turned into something beneficial for their organization, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.
He indicated in a guest piece on Fedscoop that a change in perspective would help agencies work toward conquering, and not spending resources on, the proliferation of such unapproved IT systems.
“Shadow IT brings innovation and flexibility, along with expanded capabilities, access and performance to help end users — and their agencies — meet mission requirements, ” Gaydos wrote.
“By combining the service-delivery benefits of shadow IT with a governance approach to centralizing service management, IT leaders can achieve greater cost efficiencies.”
