Keep It Simple Stupid, aka KISS, is a proven formula for business success. By keeping operations simple, the cost of doing business is reduced, there’s less room for error, and more people understand what’s going on. Your IT infrastructure is at the heart of your organization, keeping IT simple will help your business kiss many of its problems goodbye!
The problem of IT complexity is that the nature of technology is to become more complicated as it becomes more powerful. While using the latest business technology becomes simpler for the end user, the back end becomes more complex for IT managers. Here are three examples of how business technology has a tendency to complicate things.
Growth Means Increased Demands on IT Infrastructure
A growing business isn’t simple to run. Everybody wants their company to grow, but not everybody is prepared for the complex problems that accompany growth. A growing business puts increased demands on your company’s systems, like more data being processed and new users being consistently added. Ultimately, these are good problems to have because it means your bottom line is growing.
The best way to prevent growth-related IT issues is to plan ahead. Quikteks can help you make these plans with our IT consultation service. We’re more than a break-fix computer repair company, we also know a thing or two about business. We’re able to combine our business knowledge with our technology expertise to help you decide what solutions to put into place. This strategy will allow your system to handle the increased demands you’re sure to experience over the next 1-to-5 years.
Mobile Technology and BYOD Support Complicates IT Security
Mobile devices make getting tasks done around the office much easier, but they also make the job harder for IT managers. The addition of every mobile device to the network means additional access points that need to be secured, as well as increased risks from devices being lost or stolen by identity thieves. IT must also manage all the software on these devices to insure employees aren’t saving sensitive company data to an unsecure and unapproved third-party app.
Keeping mobile technology simple for your business means making extra efforts to manage how employees use their personal devices. This requires a well thought out BYOD policy that takes into account every possible risk. It is just as important to use the right mobile device management software that fits the mobile needs of your business. Quikteks can help guide you through the complexities of running a mobile business.
The Simplest Way to Handle IT Support
The responsibility for taking care of IT issues can be complicated and confusing to the non tech oriented person, and it becomes increasingly complex as technology becomes more intricate and your business grows. Taking care of technology problems on your own can be a frustrating and expensive undertaking, and if you’re not professionally trained in IT, you may not catch all the problems and you’ll miss out on money-saving IT solutions.
