Those 3 words are key for any business right now. Especially now in this golden age of technology we are currently living in. Over complicated systems and processes have only one net result – risk. We strongly believe in those 3 words, so much in fact that we have built The IT Guy’s strap line on it ‘We make IT simple’.
Are you a small business? Then it’s great for you guys as you could probably get away with no server and use cloud computing to your advantage. Hosted Exchange for email and Dropbox for your docs is perfect. Combine this with a robust backup solution and you really are keeping IT simple.
Are you a bigger business? Then you may need a server, but that’s ok. You can still use Hosted Exchange for your email reducing the workload that your server is put through. This will also aid your Disaster Recovery plan. Try using web based applications for any software that you may need to use. This means essentially that your server then becomes just a device for file sharing. Congratulations, you are also keeping your IT simple.
Of course there will be instances when you can’t keep IT simple, every business is different and the above are basic examples, but have you asked the question… Can we make our IT simple? It’s worth a shot and if you can simplify the systems you are using, you will benefit hugely.
