Software governance: CIOs take charge of shadow services

Software governance has meant more than the management of company-commissioned applications for quite some time. As the number of online services grows exponentially -- and individual employees feel more comfortable handing over their credit card numbers in order to access them in the workplace -- CIOs are facing down the challenge of overseeing an ever-expanding universe of shadow services, unsanctioned applications and other software as a service (SaaS) offerings.

In this issue of Modern Infrastructure: CIO Edition, executive editor Linda Tucci speaks with IT executives who are facing the governance of a widening landscape of SaaS services head-on. In our second piece, business strategist Harvey Koeppel enumerates the business benefits of SaaS governance in a particularly Dr. Seuss-ian manner. Finally, contributing writer Christine Parizo looks at GRC requirements for cloud applications.
