As new UC applications for both desktop and mobile continue to flood the enterprise, Shadow IT has emerged as a top-level challenge for business today. But according to new research conducted by Osterman Research, many CIOs are either unconcerned or simply not aware of how widespread the problem is and how negatively it can impact their organizations. As more employees are left to make their own decisions about the applications they use at work, serious security, compliance, and productivity issues can arise.

This free webinar will discuss the risks non-sanctioned communications tools bring to the enterprise and demonstrate how Skype for Business can help resolve Shadow IT's challenges while transforming the way organizations collaborate across the full Microsoft stack, including IM, presence, enterprise voice, video, application sharing, dial-in conferencing, and VoIP.
