Rolling out large enterprise software across any organization requires a smart infrastructure plan and an eye towards future scalability if the deployment is going to be a success. With IBM BigFix Software, there are some specific challenges that need to be met when designing a deployment from a performance perspective. Here is how one team within IBM faced a performance challenge and solved it using a smart infrastructure plan.

Shadow IT refers to the information technology solutions used inside an organization without the explicit approval of the organization. In recent years, the advent of cloud computing has made it easier for employees to circumvent IT department and use a variety of cloud applications without the knowledge or approval of the organization. Despite the high visibility of recent data breaches, most employees still choose to use cloud services to be able to do their job more efficiently. In a study conducted by IBM Security, it was found that 1 in every 3 Fortune 1000 employees regularly saves and shares company data to third- party cloud-based platforms that are not explicitly approved by their organization . This figure is expected to increase as the workplace demographic starts to change and millennials who are greater users of cloud applications  make up more and more of the workforce.
