Shadow IT: how to use it to your company's advantage

Late in the evening, you are entering the office. Dripping wet, you hurry toward the elevators as the squeaking of your black boots fill the hall. The elevator doors open . . .ding. . . you hear nothing but the sound of your breathing. Airing a dark over-sized coat just sticks out their hands right before the doors shut close. As the lift moves up, from time to time you catch a glimpse of the person’s face through the elevator’s mirrored walls. A dark coughing mask with a black rose design covers their mouth: Deep black eyes stare back at you. A few seconds passed, yellow lights start flickering, as the lift begins to slow down -- your heartbeat rises. Then you realize where and what in the business world am I reading? For pumpkin’s sake, it’s Halloween!

Can TEM Help Me Manage Skype for Business?

    Typically, businesses have equipped their offices with PBX phone systems, as well as other similar tools, such as IP Telephony systems, for employees, managers, and chief executives to make work-related phone calls. This comes with a much needed ability to keep track of usage across a company’s phone lines. These PBX phone systems allow for logging of records in order to provide reporting, typically with the help of add-on software. This way, businesses get the cost allocation and cost visibility that’s needed. This way they can keep track of who is using which phone lines, who they are calling, and what kind of telecom expenses are associated with it. Phone calls are rated and the data is easily retrievable. All of this allows managers and employees to verify calls that have been made, and finance teams to access the required data to chargeback departments the costs associated with their extensions.

Chief Financial Officers want to make investment decisions with the cost and the return at the top of mind. The Chief Information Officer wants to invest based on software and technologies with the greatest potential for business transformation. In order to make effective decisions, the process must be business-focused, and more importantly, must incorporate the perspective of both of these C-Levels in order to maximize the benefits.
