I checked the CIO list archives for anything pertaining to this issue but was unsuccessful.  So…


We are seeing an increase in departmental use of web-based solutions for productivity tools like chat, meeting scheduling, etc. Our governance group is discussing whether and/or how to address this issue in terms of security, support, click-through licensing, etc.


What, if any, concerns do you have in this area? Have any of you developed policies/procedures/guidelines on the use of these “free” or inexpensive, cloud-based productivity tools?


Please respond either on or off-line as you deem appropriate.
