While these benefits may fuel today’s digital transformation, they also attract end users or lines of business to turn to such IT offerings on demand without having the organization’s approval to act (e.g., Györy et al. 2012; Urbach and Ahlemann 2016). This trend boosts shadow IT which is hardware, software, or services built, introduced, and/or used for the job without explicit approval or even knowledge of the organization. Recent studies show that 80% of end users and 90% of functional managers deploy shadow IT and opt, for example, to quickly, although unofficially, upload a file to Dropbox or Google Drive instead of applying for an official remote VPN link (Segal 2016).
