Doing Your IT (Information Technology) DIY: No You Don’t
When you run any sort of business here in the San Francisco Bay Area, unless you are purely a one-person business, you cannot possibly do everything yourself. Even if you are a one-person business, you no doubt want your business to grow, and that means taking on staff at some point. The more your business grows, the more staff you need, and the more equipment, systems, and services you need.
You may be a fully qualified engineer, for example, and able to design the very latest high-tech ride-on lawnmower, but you don’t have the time to run the machine in the factory which actually produces the blades and all the other bits and pieces, which is why you employ men to do that for you.
For the same reason, that’s why you need to outsource all your information consulting needs to a top-rated information or managed IT consulting firm like Anchor Advisory. Managed IT consulting is what we do, and we don’t design or make any lawnmowers. You simply don’t have the time to manage your IT yourself or, dare we say it, the necessary skills.
We Will Carry Out An IT Audit for your SF Business
Our Managed IT consultants will carry out an audit of your IT needs and business goals. IT isn’t an end in itself, it is a means to an end, and the end is a profitable business. But in order to run a profitable business your systems and processes need to interface with your IT in a manner which makes everything as simple and easy to operate as it can be.
We will take an in-depth look at your Information Technology and identify where there is room for improvement. There is almost always room for improvement because technology is developing so fast that what was the very latest solution at the beginning of 2019 has now been superseded by something much faster, better, and so on, making the tech at the beginning of the year simply out of date. If you want to stay ahead of your competition, you absolutely need to have the latest systems, because if you don’t, they will.
IT is complicated, because as the technology develops so does the need for cybersecurity. As each new technology develops, you can bet your boots the hackers won’t be far behind. This is another reason why managed IT consulting is so vital to your business. A hacker getting into your systems can bring your business to a total standstill and cost you a small fortune to get it sorted out. It is far, far better to keep all your security right up to date so that hackers can’t get in at all. Let one of our consultants take an in-depth look at your systems and advise you of the best way forward.
