Submitted by

flatfilsoc writes "The current issue of CIO Magazine has a nice article about the emergence of the growing expertise of users calling this the, THE SHADOW IT DEPARTMENT, or the tale of users who know too much (and the IT leaders who fear them). The article argues that the boundary between a users' workplace and home have broken down making the formal IT jobs harder as they bring or download more "gadgets" to work for increasing their own work productivity. The article also argues that the tendency for the formal IT department to fight is self-defeating and outlines strategies for peaceful co-existence.
