The desire to implement new technology for your business is born from the desire to solve some sort of problem, such as issues with productivity or operational inefficiencies. The end result should be progress and forward momentum that allows you to improve your business, not over-complicate your infrastructure and bog it down with unnecessary technology.
Many businesses struggle with implementing new technology, and no amount of IT support in the world or available resources will change this fact. Essentially, businesses have to ask themselves, “What problem am I aiming to solve with this technology?”’ Understanding the answer to this question is the first step toward finding the correct solution to address your problems. But, as is often the case with technology, the solution is not always clear.
For example, two similar companies are trying to increase accessibility of network resources for remote employees. They can use the cloud to make data accessible from anywhere on any approved devices. While the problem and solution are the same, the specific solution itself will vary depending on certain factors.
In this situation, pre-existing resources will drastically change how the cloud is implemented. If the infrastructure available can accommodate a cloud server, then that is an option, as long as the company has the technical expertise to deploy, manage, and maintain the infrastructure. If this is not the case, however, and the company doesn’t have these resources, then the cloud solution can be outsourced to a managed service provider. This removes the responsibility of hosting, managing, and maintaining the cloud solution from the business.
In both of the above scenarios, the companies are looking at their problems and the potential solutions, then using their current resources to determine how to implement the solution. This is key to making progress toward resolving problems with your IT infrastructure. If you know what you need to do and how you need to do it, you will have a greater chance of actually getting it done.
