Your organisation will undoubtedly have clear aims and visions about what it wants to achieve in the next 3 or 5 years. However, many SMB’s don’t have an IT strategy.
Many companies will make ad-hoc additions to their IT infrasture, such as one-off purchases of Desktops and Laptops. Even this can cause issues with un-tracked warranties, different pre-installed software or “special offers” that are just not upto the job. Different Antivirus software on your machines may not sound like a problem, but the quality differs greatly, there is no central management to confirm updates are being applied or manage policies, renewals at different times of the year will throw off budgets and be more expensive then a single solution; this will all increase administration costs and IT support calls.
Your IT statergy needs to give your business the edge over your competitors, whether that be Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software that allows instant access to customer information or secure Wi-Fi access for customers visiting your office or shop.
