Computer Sciences Corporation CTO financial services EMEA, Tom Rogerson, talks to Computer Weekly's Warwick Ashford about the consumerisation of IT - the introduction of consumer technology and consumer IT-usage habits into the workplace.
Rogerson discusses how businesses are responding to the trend, to mitigate threats and exploit the opportunities it presents.
Topics include: security, instant messaging, shadow IT, grid and cloud computing, de-perimiterisation, spam filtering, Yahoo!, Amazon, corporate IT, consumer IT, lockdown, the risks of dependency on consumerised applications for strategic assets, and how IT professionals need to become "yes, and..." rather than "no, but..." in order to manage the risks.
