If you’re a growing business, it is crucial that you consider how your IT can assist in the delivery of growth. Lack of an IT strategy can leave you purchasing ‘point solutions’ – solutions that are purchased to solve immediate problems – at a rate that can impact on your development.
Furthermore, the support of these point solutions is often acquired on a break/fix basis, meaning support for your new devices can be spread across multiple providers which can reduce your efficiency in troubleshooting issues.
You also need to consider other factors that impact your IT, such as end-of-life and loss of support for older hardware and software, as well as ever-evolving security risks. Your business needs to meet regulatory obligations in relation to data security, licencing and other legislation to remain compliant and avoid expensive legal action and reputational damage.
For a company that is content, or even stagnant, an IT Strategy Review may seem like an unnecessary expense. For a company with ambitions for growth, it can be the key to unlocking the potential of your IT.
