Arthur Lozinski, CEO of IT management provider Oomnitza, joins the My TechDecisions Podcast to discuss how the expanding IT estate is creating blind spots.
The company recently released the results of a survey of IT leaders from 100 enterprises of more than 5,000 employees across the U.S. that found that 71% of IT leaders anticipate increased security breaches and operational expenditures despite 76% of them employing multiple IT management systems to find information about different technologies within the organization.
The survey, “Managing Enterprise Technology Blind Spots,” finds that solely relying on disparate systems to manage different technologies — including endpoints, applications, network and cloud infrastructure — isn’t giving IT pros the visibility, control or automation necessary to optimize resources and manage risk. That is leading to shadow IT, the report suggests.
When asked about their top challenges with managing technology, 43% of IT professionals cited security concerns related to lost or unsecured devices, 40% cited unaccounted or incorrect data about assets, 38% said poor visibility into asset status and refreshes, 37% said lack of compliance adherence and 32% said overspending on software and the cloud.
The majority (33%) said their organization uses 25 or fewer SaaS apps, but nearly half (46%) said their organization uses more than 50, including 15% that said they use more than 200, according to the San Francisco, Calif.-based company’s report.
