It’s a necessary evil
Whether your business has already adopted cloud, is considering it, or is resisting it altogether, it’s worth keeping on top of.
Cloud can offer many business benefits – we can see if and how it’s right for your organisation
The cloud isn’t going to burst
It’s the day job
Digital transformation, cloud, IT inventory projects – they all take time and resource.
If you need to be focusing on them (and more!), it might be time to consider moving on from the day-to-day stuff…
Bread and butter sometimes needs jam
Do you have your ducks in a row?
It sounds obvious, but it’s crucial to understand what applications you’re running, how long they are supported, and if there any gaps or redundancies.
Improve your planning and potentially reduce costs by avoiding overlapping technologies
Carry out an inventory of your IT
Reliable, low cost archiving
There aren’t many (if any) homes watching movies on VHS anymore. Yet some businesses are still relying on tape to store crucial backups and archiving.
Consider moving to efficient, low-cost storage in the cloud and you’ll have less hassle maintaining tapes, as well as a much simpler recovery process.
Time to move on from those tapes!
Recycling is good – but don’t overlook data destruction
Recycling redundant servers and storage is good, no doubt about it. But while we all pat ourselves on the back that we’re doing our bit for the planet and making it a greener place, don’t forget the crucial step that sits between the useful life of infrastructure and the recycling process; that is - how can you guarantee your sensitive data has been destroyed.
Don’t let good intentions come back to bite you!
Reporting on your results
We all know the importance of internal reporting, but it can also be a pain.
With the right reporting structures in place, you can establish central reporting of key metrics and KPIs
Monitor your IT performance and make data-driven decisions
Knowledge is power!
