What is the Value of a Business IT Assessment

Jun 02 2016

IT_assessment_value_for_your_business.jpgHave you ever had an IT or Managed IT Services provider give you a full business IT assessment of your company's technology? If so, you may have learned quite a lot about how your systems work for your business. Many organizations lose the opportunity to learn about their own IT environments because they either do not know about IT assessments or the power that an assessment can give them. If you have not taken advantage of a full network assessment, you should consider doing so now, and here are a few reasons why.

1. You will learn what is working for you.

When you invest in having a Managed Services provider perform a full assessment of your technology, you will gain some insight into what you’re currently doing that is working well for your company. When you know which systems are working for your business, you can make important budgeting and staffing decisions, taking into account the goals of your organization and how your current technology is helping you reach them.

2. You will learn what is NOT working for you.

On the flip side, you can figure out which systems are causing your business undetected pain points. For example, perhaps your backup method has been failing intermittently and the issue has flown under the radar. In this case, a business IT assessment will help you discover this issue and choose a better option for the future.

3. You will learn about levels of performance for all of your systems.

Maybe your network performance has been good, but could be even better and allow your business to reach more goals if you take advantage of new options. You might even learn that you’ve placed too much effort into a system that is not giving you adequate return on your investment. System performance is important, and an assessment can help you identify those areas that need a little more attention.

4. You will gain some powerful recommendations for your company’s unique goals.

You may do your best to stay ahead of all of the technological options available to your organization, but many resources will make suggestions from a generic standpoint. The best thing about a business IT assessment of your technology and network is that the observations and recommendations are tailored to your business’s specific needs. This will help you make important decisions, allowing your organization to reach new heights through better technology.

With a business IT assessment, you will receive a written evaluation of your company’s IT environment as well as recommendations for upgrades, new products and services, and ways to make your technology work better for you. It is truly invaluable and if you have not yet taken advantage of this powerful tool, now would be a great time to do so.
