Technology Advisory Group: Managed IT Services In Newport, RI
IT is a powerful tool that can take your company soaring to new heights, but failed IT systems can cost your company billions of dollars. Studies have shown that downtime in the IT department can cost companies hundreds of thousands of dollars per hour. And as the average business experiences nearly 30 hours of downtime every month, the calculations are astounding.
There are many reasons an IT system can fail, but the following are some of the most common:
- Software malfunctions
- Hardware failure
- Human error
- Network failure
- Web hosting issues
It is essential to your business success to address these potential issues.
Strengthening Your IT System
Though it can be challenging to put a stop to every issue, there are steps you can take to reduce downtime and minimize loss as a result, such as:
- Ensuring that your systems are appropriately configured for your business needs
- Having sufficient security measures in place to prevent hacking, phishing, malicious attacks, and more
- Vigilantly monitoring your system’s performance for any potential issues and addressing them immediately
- Keeping your system and software up-to-date at all times
- Having effective recovery plans in place should a disaster strike
- Training your staff on cybersecurity measures
- Assessing your network, data centers, website hosts, and any other tools you use to ensure they fulfill your needs
Unfortunately, unless you own or manage an IT business, these steps are most likely not something you have extra time for or have the tools you need to do so. When this is true, the wisest step you can take is to obtain managed IT services for your company.
What Is Managed IT Services?
Managed IT services is the process of delegating the responsibility of your IT system to an external partner. That partner is a team of IT experts who helps keep your systems up, running, and functioning at their very best.
