What would be the impact of an IT system failure in your business?
With technology and IT ever changing, that means there are a number of potential
problems small businesses can face. From setting up IT infrastructure, supporting it to
making sure it’s used appropriately.
Most businesses can often benefit from professional support and other resources to help
them make the right decisions.
What is the best IT infrastructure for your business?
The IT infrastructure of your business is absolutely vital. If it’s not setup correctly in the
beginning, there can be significant problems sooner rather than later down the road.
Do you need inhouse servers or cloudbased storage? Are desktop computers, laptop
computers or tablets the best choice for you and your business? Should you set up an
Ethernet network or rely on wireless technology?
So what is the best way to make sure you get the correct IT infrastructure for your
business? Bring in a qualified professional team who can best understand your needs.
Getting IT Support
Once your network is setup: how do you get the best support you need for your IT
Without good expert support, your IT systems could be down more than they’re running, and
that could mean lost revenue for your business.
So what’s the best option for IT support? How will you perform updates to software
applications and ensure critical patches are applied? Who will upgrade components of
your system when needed and diagnose hardware problems? What will you do if your
network goes down and you lose connectivity?
Because there are so many questions that centre on IT support, you need to have a good
solution in place. If your business budget allows and the size of your business is sufficient
to support hiring an IT professional, having a person available onsite all the time may be
your best option.
How will you ensure your IT is being used efficiently?
How will you ensure your IT resources are being used effectively? How will you keep costly
bandwidth from being wasted? How will you protect your network from malicious viruses
that can be hidden in emails or on websites?
The best way to avoid many of these problems is to ensure your system has safeguards
such as firewalls and other controls in place. The IT support solution you choose will assist
in making sure that you have the most appropriate measures in place to protect you and
support your business.
