Our #CIOchat yesterday about how CIOs should approach rogue clouds yielded some great insights. We were keying off a post in which I curated a CIO.com interview with CIO Michael Keithley of the Creative Artists Agency where 1,600 rogue clouds were unearthed.

Family photos are a staple in my family. I've taken lots of them on trips and special occasions. 

My conversion from film to digital occurred 15 years ago and I've scanned about 350 GB worth of print photos on my system. I have multiple copies on separate drives and a number of them have been burned on DVDs. But you know, I don’t want to lose the family history. So, I finally decided to keep an extra copy in the cloud. I should have done that a long time ago, but you know how these things go.

CIO Michael Keithley's assertion that he found 1,600 rogue clouds in his company (Creative Artists Agency) should serve as a warning that not only is Shadow IT alive and well. It's growing as an explosive rate.

Skyhigh Networks found that the average number of rogue clouds is 759 per organization.

Wow. "Terrifying" is the way to describe how many rogue clouds Creative Artists CIO Michael Keithley found when he used a tool from Skyhigh Networks (watch the video) that exposes unofficial clouds.

The first step is knowing how bad the problem is. The second step is shutting down the really threatening ones. Indeed, Keithley found some from the Eastern bloc that were trying to steal sensitive information.

From his story:

Here we go again. The wellworn theory that the CIO is being relegated to service broker and/or losing control of IT is rearing its head again. And so consludes this report from Microsoft value-added-reseller Avanade.

Open source has moved into the mainstream, primarily as a way to open up legacy systems to mobile apps, among other things.

That's what CIOs said last week at the Open Business Conference although one would presume CIOs would only be there if they were interested in open source.

Google Glass or facsimile has role when critical info is needed

Google Glass comes in for a lot of derision in tech circles. It's nerdy, distrasting, obnoxious and of questionnable value. Sort of like Twitter in its early days.

But listening to Beth Isreal Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) CIO John Halamka last week shed some light about how Glass can be a life saver. Literally.
