tonyArticleA few days ago I wrote about how Shadow IT is the next big issue for CIOs to tackle. We’re all realizing it’s a problem — but how do we fix it?

A client of mine – a software company based in Denver, has recently launched an elegant SaaS solution for Shadow IT. Their solution helps organizations make better and faster technology buying decisions while enabling a more effective governance model to deal with decentralized technology spend and Shadow IT. The company is SelectHub.

SelectHub saves IT and Business users months of work during the requirements compilation, vendor research and RFI/RFP process. You can also leverage the community within SelectHub to help you evaluate technology vendors based on their previous experience with them.

Here are a few statements from CIOs of prominent companies on their website:

“SelectHub is huge! It takes the unstructured process of ad-hoc decision making that companies use in expensive technology selections and turns it into a fine tuned methodology.” —Rajeev Ankireddypalli, CIO, Advanced Energy

“SelectHub is the only product of its kind in the market that has a real time system of record, optimizes spend, and improves the time to market for the business around the enterprise IT vendor selection process.” —Jeff Kuckenbaker – CIO, Stanley Black & Decker , Inc.

“SelectHub fills a real void around Shadow IT Projects and IT Procurement best practices. It provides real time insight and visibility.” —Keith Sherwell, CIO, Sears Holdings Corp.

“SelectHub provides the speed of real-time collaboration on technology procurement in a world where the old pace of doing things won’t get the job done. SelectHub accelerates IT unlike any other tool.” —Rob Meilen, CIO, Hunter Douglas

Would your organization be interested in seeing a demo of SelectHub? If so, please let me know and I would be happy to provide an introduction.


Finding top talent for your team is key to meeting your business objectives. Let me know if want to discuss your challenges in that area.
