NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Shadow IT, the use of unauthorized applications and services, can make tech pros cringe. But what if shadow IT is an opportunity to be embraced rather than a problem to stamp out?
Join Stephen Comstock, Vice President of Site and IT Infrastructure for CBS Interactive, and Interop Radio host Curt Franklin as they discuss how IT leaders can use shadow IT to their advantage. This special edition of Interop Radio happens today, August 14, at 2:00 p.m. EDT (11:00 a.m. PDT). After their discussion, Comstock and Franklin will take your questions in a live chat on InformationWeek.

Rather than shut down an unauthorized app, Comstock's approach is to find ways that IT can help make the application more suitable, such as getting teams on a single instance, negotiating prices, and ensuring that confidential data gets protected. He'll discuss this approach and more during today's show.
In addition to his appearance on Interop Radio, Comstock is slated to speak at the 2014 Interop conference in New York City, which kicks off September 29 and runs through October 3, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
The Interop conference offers a unique opportunity to help you connect with your IT colleagues, help your career take off, and learn how technology is changing the way business is done. You can find more information about Interop New York and the show speakers, as well as the registration page, here.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.

This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity.
