Part 1 – 5 Ways You’re Wasting Your IT Budget
IT budget cuts. Number crunching. Downsizing.
Businesses are constantly looking for ways to cut spending. To reduce overhead, some companies try managing their IT environment without dedicated technical resources. Depending on the size of your company and the complexity of your infrastructure, it might be a great business decision. But what if it isn’t?
We’ve talked before about reasons to engage a local technology partner. Now let’s talk about why partnering with a VAR is a good investment.
|IF YOU’RE WASTING MONEY…
||A VAR CAN PROVIDE…
|1||Assessing your IT environment without expert IT resources||IT assessments and customized IT solutions based on your operational requirements|
|2||Incorrectly prioritizing Access, Security, Storage, and Backup & Recovery||Prioritized list of recommendations for infrastructure alignment|
|3||Researching equipment and services||Wide range of product and service knowledge to find the best solution|
|4||Researching environment structure: On-premise? Off-premise? Cloud Services? Hybrid Environment?||Assistance with creating your IT Budget; Virtualization & Disaster Recovery Planning|
|5||Misinterpreting essential/non-essential product features||Good/Better/Best product and service options|
Establishing and maintaining a stable IT environment can be time consuming and expensive. It is also one of the most critical aspects of your business. Don’t waste time and money that could be saved by partnering with a VAR to outsource your IT needs.
