TechEd 2014: Seamless hybrid identity necessary to deter shadow IT's spread

Sathya Mithra Ashok | Sept. 12, 2014
Companies have to learn how to manage how they manage BYOD (bring-your-own-device) elements across their employees if they don't want the growing spectre of shadow IT taking over.

"In NZ, some companies have done it really well, others have done it horribly. We have worked for the latter and they have asked us to come in and help, and sometimes it is too late. To do this we have to reset and start again.

"Others have done it by the textbooks and the whitepapers and have done an amazing job. It is rather 50-50 now between firms that have done it well and those that haven't. It is a fine line, but that is just my experience," he added.

The hybrid entity should be backed by mobile device and application management, access and information protection and desktop virtualisation to fully enable an enterprise strategy for better BYOD.

This year's Microsoft TechEd conference, which will run for four days in Auckland, brings together IT developers, tinkerers, vendors and partners to discuss the latest developments in Microsoft and its technologies. More than 2000 people are expected to attend the event through the days.
