Shadow IT threatens GRC (governance, compliance, risk) and corporate integrity. It increases cost and risk. How can IT best identify and address Shadow IT?

Cloud accelerated in 2020, so did IT challenges with hybrid/multi cloud use, data protection and SaaS management. Cloud-based management services also proliferated, easing IT across on-prem and cloud. Is cloud still the winning bet?
