    75% of tech pros admit that shadow IT and cloud sprawl exists within their organizations, regardless of how tech teams feel about this.
 

Momentum for public cloud deployment is expected to rapidly increase over the next year—at the risk of organizations losing control over critical parts of their IT infrastructure, according to a recent survey from ScienceLogic. The company's latest annual "Trends in Global Cloud Adoption" report reveals that most businesses are using at least some form of the public cloud, and these adoptions will expand significantly in the immediate future. Yet a notable share of tech professionals concede that they aren't proactively monitoring workloads in the public cloud, and a majority admit that they cannot ensure the optimal performance, health and availability of these workloads due to this lack of visibility. Employees and users are adding to the sense of oversight abandonment, with most tech staffers indicating that shadow IT and cloud sprawl thrive within their organization—whether they like it or not. The findings also shed insight upon the frequency and associated costs of network outages, and we've included that here. More than 1,600 global IT pros took part in the research.
