Our first discussion is about an article by Rahul Sharma, titled Shadow IT is not that scary after all: Here’s six reasons not to be afraid. Shadow IT is something that tech administrators have historically considered to be bad for the enterprise and worked hard to prevent. Rahul reveals that current research suggests a side that really isn’t dark and disruptive. Is new light being shed from behind this shadow and is now the time to leverage this as an opportunity to increase productivity?

Second up is a contribution from Benjamin Roussey, titled How to rescue your team from tech’s biggest time wasters. It is no big secret that we live in the age of instant gratification and constant distraction. This article offers some great insight as to what the greatest time wasters are and provides some timely advice on how to educate ourselves and our employees in an effort to minimize the impact on business.

Our podcast closes with Amy Babinchak’s article about the importance of being a futurist if you are an IT business owner. Titled, Back to the futurist: IT business owners must see ahead or they will fall behind, this article stresses that if we don’t want our businesses to go the way of television repair, we need to make business decisions based on the predictions that fall out of studying current trends. This is a not so subtle reminder that in the ever-changing world of technology if we want continued success we need to stay ahead of the curve.
