Successful business setup

Information Technology adoption is a vital to help your business in an increasingly competitive world. Most of the businesses recognize their growing dependence on technology to reap the benefits that cloud, mobility, big data, and security offer. Businesses are bombarded with new technologies and IT solutions claiming to be the answer to their business problems. So, are you asking the right questions to determine the best products for your business?

The below four key topics can help you find the right IT products for your business:

 

Increase in productivity

To compete and win, you must deliver more new services faster than ever.  Legacy servers, storage and networking cannot drive the productivity your business needs to compete and win. When considering new products, choose servers, storage and networking that are designed for the speed, scale, reliability and simplicity you need and provide anytime, anywhere access to any device in your business.

 

Growth by acquiring new customers and retaining existing 

You already have most of the data you need to personalize your customers’ experiences in the massive volumes of data you’ve accumulated. Business intelligence solutions can quickly turn massive volumes of data into market insights and allow you to target customer interactions, drive product innovation for an increased share of wallet, and create service offerings that engender loyalty. Look for a business intelligence solution that runs on infrastructure that easily scales, is simple to manage, and has the network bandwidth for both wired and wireless.  The most efficient solutions include servers, storage and networking that are designed to work together.

 

Reduce costs without compromising business

Not only can you maximize IT efficiency by carefully evaluating deployment, management, and maintenance costs, you can also look for flexible solutions are sized just right for your needs today and grow easily as your business demands. Choosing an affordable solution means it’s sized so you buy only what you need today, but is flexible and designed to easily scale and grow with your business. It may also have flexible leasing and purchase options.

 

Keep business running

As your business grows, your data becomes increasingly valuable—both to you and to cyber-criminals. Cloud and mobility—together with rapid growth, time and expertise constraints—translate to increased exposure to security threats. A cyber-attack can mean lost sales and customers, damage to your brand and reputation, investigation and forensics costs in addition to possible fines and penalties, legal costs, settlements and judgments. With the average cost of downtime running at BD 2,500.00 per minute, security becomes a key criteria for your business critical solutions. Choose solutions with built-in, proven reliability and comprehensive backup and recovery for both physical and virtual environments, as well as tools to ensure mobile devices are securely on-boarded, provisioned and quarantined.
