In today’s world every company has to use IT on a daily basis if they want to keep up with the competition. For example using cloud storage has become mainstream. The advantages are clear: employees have access to data on the road and can more efficiently collaborate with colleagues.
The IT infrastructure we require to utilize these new possibilities has changed drastically over the years and this has a direct effect on the time it takes to manage it. Is your IT infrastructure up to the task or better yet does it provide added value to your business instead of merely causing headaches?
The main goal of a proper IT infrastructure is to get the right data to the right person at the right time to display in the correct manner regardless of the device they are using.
In the past the latter was relatively easy as most people used a PC with similar capabilities, but those days are long over. Devices like smartphones, tablets and ultrabooks are commonplace now and there are various operating systems from Windows, Android to Mac and iOS. Making sure your internal system works perfectly on all these devices and various screen sizes can become a full-time job even for a small business.
Making everything work is just one aspect of your IT infrastructure though, another important part is IT security. Is your network secure? Are all devices equipped with updated antivirus and antispyware software? Are your employees informed about potential security risks and is proper support provided to them when they need help?
The amount of work needed to manage your IT infrastructure is why many companies decide to outsource their IT management. Outsourcing IT also offers better protection of your data if you choose for a trustworthy partner that specializes in IT security.
