What is Cloud Sprawl?

Cloud sprawl is a term used to describe a business situation where the corporation has data scattered in multiple ‘Clouds’.

Cloud sprawl is often employee led as through ‘bring your own device’ technology, Public Cloud services and applications are becoming easier to access by individuals.

Employees are taking advantage of being able to share, collaborate and access data remotely through the Cloud.

It is clear that the Cloud is here to stay and organisations need to develop an internal strategy to manage this issue – implementing a universal business Cloud solution is one way of utilising benefits while also managing data leakage.
