Deploying multiple ad-hoc communication solutions in the work place creates unnecessary uncertainty, in terms of both usability and security. End users are unsure which communication tool to use when, and admins are unsure of how many tools are actually being used and of the security implications of widespread shadow IT.
When departments independently deploy ad-hoc solutions, they are signing up for more than they initially think. Contracts are signed, unknown apps are downloaded and the funds you thought you had to spend on team communication and collaboration end up sunk into multiple license and support contracts for solutions that don’t talk to one another. Before long you’re left with an ineffective collaboration solution caused by the chaos of too many collaboration apps.
In a recent survey we conducted with Spiceworks, we found out that not only is the average IT pro juggling four solutions but also that 56% of those IT pros surveyed don’t even know what their organizations are spending on subscriptions/licenses for collaboration.
In this webinar, we talk about what you can do to navigate your organization away from the inefficiencies of deploying way too many collaboration tools and some important things to consider before selecting and onboarding a new solution.
