Six per cent of all IT procurement in the UK is made on a completely ad hoc basis, in a trend known as ‘shadow IT’, reports Computing.co.uk. This is where business owners and technology departments are unaware of the tools, systems and services being bought. When survey respondents were asked ‘who decides where an application will be deployed’ (e.g. in public cloud, private cloud, on premises etc), respondents said that for financial systems, 51 per cent of decisions were made by IT, 47 per cent by the line of business department, with 2 per cent stating that it was down to one individual to decide. When respondents were polled for its experiences, 59 per cent said purchasing decisions are made on a case by case basis, with 39 per cent following organisational strategy, and six per cent being ad hoc, or shadow IT.
