Many companies may have apps, however many employees are developing their own solutions if they don’t think the apps their enterprise provides is sufficient. In fact, 41% of employees surveyed by email solutions provider Newsweaver don’t think these apps meet their needs.

Employees are implementing their own solutions by “going rogue” and bringing in their own (potentially non-IT approved) apps.
