Today’s organizations face an unprecedented number of threats ranging from weather-related events to cyberattacks to catastrophic hardware failures. The fact that they are dependent on increasingly complex networks and supply chains doesn’t make it any easier to prepare for a worst-case scenario.
If you haven’t been regularly monitoring your IT, then you might be overlooking critical issues that could result in a variety of problems such as cyberattacks, hardware and software failures, and network misuse. It may be challenging for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with limited resources, but proactively monitoring your IT helps prevent these and other issues.
Moving to a new office could mean your business is finally taking flight. You might be relocating to reduce costs, consolidate offices, or because your lease has expired. As you plan your move and take into account important factors like location, rent, and space, make sure you’re not neglecting your IT.
Most business owners believe that when moving office locations, establishing IT infrastructure should be easy.
In today’s digital age, many small- and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) are moving to the cloud, using biometrics for added security, or employing managed IT services for efficiency, economy and increased production. And while “the bigger the business, the bigger the headache” is true, SMBs also develop a migraine when faced with technical issues they can’t handle.
Modern technology is no longer a commodity. It’s a business imperative, a crucial asset that can add value throughout the organization. As enterprise technology continues to evolve, the need to develop long-term strategies that align with business goals has become essential.
As the old adage goes, failing to plan is planning to fail. When it comes to technology, there’s a great deal at stake. Get disaster recovery wrong, and there’s a high chance of your business closing its doors for good in the event of a catastrophe.
By now, you’ve probably heard a great deal about the cloud, but all the hype means nothing if you’re still not up to date with the jargon. That’s why we’ve compiled a glossary of common cloud computing terms that are worth familiarizing yourself with.
Baffling error messages, endless invoices, and inadequate workarounds are just some of the issues you can expect to face if you’re trying to manage your own IT infrastructure. Unfortunately, if you’re running a small business, establishing a dedicated IT department is neither affordable nor even desirable.
Most business leaders appreciate the need to innovate, but it’s easier for modern technology to become a costly burden than a valuable asset that drives growth. With limited resources, both in terms of budget and expertise, there’s a constant need to carefully evaluate IT solutions to align technology and business priorities.
Digital security used to be relatively simple. Companies would rely on conventional measures like firewalls and antivirus software. Today, these are just two small components of a robust cybersecurity infrastructure, and they’re not nearly enough by themselves.
