Are You Making 2018 IT Resolutions?
It’s that time of year! Businesses throughout the country are sketching out plans for the year ahead, making updated financial projections and determining how they are going to make 2018 their best year yet. What resolutions is your business making when it comes to IT?
The IT Resolutions You Make Year After Year
If you aren’t quite sure what IT infrastructure you need or how to get there, your resolutions might look pretty vague and something like these.
- Securing network and updating software
- Use the cloud
- Proactive approach to security and safeguarding of valuable data and information
The Right Way to Achieve Your Resolutions
Before you can set realistic goals for your business’s hardware, software and IT department for 2018, you need to know where you currently are. Your goal-setting should start with an in-depth infrastructure assessment to evaluate the current state of your equipment. Have your computer monitors been in your office since Friends was on TV? You’re long overdue for an upgrade. Did you just upgrade your word processing software last year? You’re probably doing just fine in that department.
Next, you should evaluate your overall business goals. Do you want to make more sales and get more done with the same amount of employees and contractors? Faster tech equipment and system upgrades will help you to boost productivity and efficiency levels. Are you looking to move locations over the course of the next year? It might be more appropriate to save up for your upgrades and wait to invest until you make the move.
