The Rise of Shadow IT

the rise of shadow it special research report Photo by
The rate of change in the IT industry has increased dramatically in recent years, just as overall technological change has moved ahead even faster. Such is the pace that it's been imposing a disruptive forward drag on enterprises for several years now. This has become a critical driving factor in particular with the emerging discipline of social computing. In my recent post on social business and the challenges currently facing modern CIOs, I explored the macro conditions that are altering the competitive landscape amid major changes in expectations by internal and external stakeholders. While the role of CIOs itself has ...
theory x theory y – the management battleground
I’ve been wondering recently just why is it that, whenever one talks about the shift in business and society as a result of the Web, two camps quickly develop in the room. Whatever the specific topic of the conversation, about half the folks in the room believe the change to be foundational and that new management approaches are needed urgently, and about half don’t. The camps often become more entrenched not less as the discussion progresses. Often there’s more than a little heat in the exchanges. Is it the usual battle between proponents of status quo and change, or something else? For me, it's something ... market research, surveys and trends
The reality of the 'China Fantasy' - By Will Inboden | Shadow ...
of that title identified the "China Fantasy" as the dogmatic belief of many Western political and commercial elites that China's economic liberalization and growth would lead inevitably to democracy at home and responsible conduct abroad. The operative word was "inevitably" -- the assumption being that China's remarkable economic success would automatically produce a middle class that demanded greater political rights, and that China's growing integration with the global economy would produce benign and responsible international behavior. Based on this assumption, the corollary policy prescription for the West was ... market research, surveys and trends

The Chinese Shadow | The New York Review of Books
The “rise” of China has suddenly become the all-absorbing topic for those professionally concerned with the future of the planet. Will the twenty-first century be the Chinese century, and, if so, in what sense? Will China’s rise be peaceful or violent? And how will this affect the United States, the current “hyperpower”? In fact, China has been “rising” for some time (after several hundred years of “fall”), but for many years its claim to notice was obscured by more exciting events. Attention in the 1990s concentrated on the fall of Soviet communism, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Enterprise risk management lessons from the BP Deepwater Horizon catastrophe
The BP Deepwater Horizon catastrophe casts a shadow reflecting on all oil company CEO’s and senior executives, not just BP’s Tony Hayward.

U.S. economy is doing penance for past sins
NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- More manufactured goods, fewer homes. It's a positive combination as the U.S. economy is still doing penance for past sins. The recovery has proceeded at a disappointingly slow pace in large part because the U.S. needs to work down the excesses that grew in some sectors over the past decade. The uneven pace of the recovery was evident in data published Wednesday. Housing starts in May were down 10% -- far weaker than expected -- while industrial production increased 1.2% last month -- more than forecast. Although diversification remains a sound idea, market cap-based indexes have the perverse ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What is the rain shadow effect? - Yahoo! Answers
I have my text book with me and I really don't understand what the rain shadow effect is. Please summarize is in simpler terms for me. XD Thanks! Member since: September 05, 2006 Total points: 22610 (Level 6) Badge Image: Contributing In: Weather I try to put explain this as simple as I can. When air flows over a mountain range, sometimes the only way it can move pass it is by going over the top. When air rises (goes up in elevation), it will start to cool. If the air has a lot of moisture in it when it cool, some of these moisture in the air will start to condense (water molecules change from a gas vapor to liquid ...
What are the causes of seeing 'shadow people'? - Yahoo! Answers
I've read that people taking crystal meth see them, what other conditions or circumstances cause the illusion of seeing shadow people? So do you still feel fear when you see them even though you know that they are an illusion? Can the fear be a physical symptom, like maybe the vision is accompanied by adrenelin or some other hormone that operates separate to a conscious fear? 2 years ago There are actually several things that can cause shadow men. Quick moving shadows out of the corner of the eye are caused by a misinterpretation of movement of shadow and light in the peripheral vision. Although these are fairly common, ...
