Shadow IT happens because it solves problems and people can quickly get what they need by paying on a credit card. (Large monthly bill becomes the new problem)
Users demand access to data when-ever and where-ever they want. Company managers can do all sorts at home and now expect these feactures in the office.

Talk about 'Shadow IT'

* Traditional storage solutions are running out of ideas to keep growing. A new way of managing data is required. Moving on from one storage company to create a new storage company. Results in a simular solution.

Joke about “Bezzel Tax” as most storage is a super micro box.
