Are you looking to kick-start 2016 with a fresh approach to IT? Maybe you’re thinking about overhauling that outdated, old setup and starting from the ground up? Or maybe you just need an upgrade in a certain area, such as cloud access or security? The new year is a clean slate, and a good time to reassess budgets, future plans and expansions, but sometimes it can be difficult to be certain if what you envision is the right move for your business.
It can be hard to pinpoint just what sort of solutions or services are right for your business, because when you’re working inside it every day, sometimes the obvious things aren’t apparent from the inside. Asking yourself a few quick questions can help to undercover the real needs of your business, and point you in the right direction.
What Are Your Aims?
Firstly, think of what you’d like to achieve with a more effective, streamlined IT infrastructure, is it better internal cloud access functionality for employees with multiple devices? Maybe you want to give your customers a faster, safer web experience? Or you might need to outsource certain sections of your IT completely as part of a managed service. Outlining your needs and those of your business or organisation is the first step in realising what scale of refurbishment or upheaval you might need.
Look at Your Existing Situation
Take a look what equipment and space is actually around, do you have or need dedicated space for equipment in-house, or is it going to be more beneficial to use our remote data centres to store hardware? How recently have you upgraded your infrastructure? How much did you invest into it? All these questions will provide insights to what solutions will fit in with your current situation.
