Chat is ubiquitous. It’s everywhere – literally. In their private life’s, people set up their birthday parties on WhatsApp™ and Facebook. When at work, staff use the enterprise chat alternatives provided by their employers.
Millennials’ use of technology and affinity with the digital world clearly sets them apart from the generations before them. They’ve grown up in a world crowded by broadband, smartphones, laptops and social media and they expect instant access to any information they require.
Shadow IT is a term often used to describe information-technology systems and solutions built and used by employees without approval, or even knowledge, from the firm and/or the IT department. Corporate teams use whatever equipment is accessible to them to get the job done – this includes consumer and social apps within the enterprise to exchange critical and often business sensitive information.

Uncertainty brought on by the much discussed Brexit vote hasn’t instilled any calm or confidence either.
