Active management of your network, as opposed to waiting for it to breakdown, increases its reliability and your productivity. Maintaining the network on a regular basis is no different than maintaining a car -regular, systematic checks can make all the difference between a smooth running network and costly, unproductive downtime.
Just as you plan market growth for your products and services, your technology needs a strategy.
If your business expansion outgrows your supporting technology, IT issues can drag down the best of business plans. Companies and their employees often live with disconnected or obsolete systems, wasting valuable time and making every business effort feel like a challenge.
Strategic IT Planning should consider growth predictions, identify potential bottlenecks, consider new and alternative computing systems, and costs involved. Hardware, software, infrastructure, human capital and customer expectations should all be included. Other items include:
- Business priorities
- Budgetary constraints
- Cost of ownership
- Maintenance and upgrades
- Employee core competencies
- New technologies
- Data protection, storage and data access requirements
