What is Rogue IT?

Tuesday, June 19th, 2007

In another sneak preview from the Blue Prism Rogue IT survey, respondents working in enterprise IT were asked what they considered to be “Rogue IT”.

I thought it would be fun to put it into a league table.  Again there were some results that I found surprising, for example the relatively high number who thought complex Excel spreadsheets were Rogue.  I would have expected more people to consider locally written VB scripts as rogue.  I also might have expected more IT people to put SaaS in the Rogue category but I guess that probably boils down to whether the SaaS is being used with the knowledge and consent of IT.

So here is the Rogue’s Gallery League Table with the percentage of “votes” for each one.
