As your business grows and as technology changes, it becomes imperative to gain a competitive edge from business IT solutions.
It then follows that selecting the priority area in your business becomes challenging because of various reasons, including cost, applicability, and ROI.
The decision to deploy technology should, however, fall under these two premises; functionality, and flexibility.
Interoperability and Functionality
Your business units have different functions but operate towards meeting the overall business goal and objective. Therefore, any technology that you procure for your business should work alongside the legacy technologies and fit into the functional business processes. The integration of the technologies and the business processes will only achieve seamless functionality if they are compatible.
Consequently, for business decision makers, selecting this piece of technology is a lengthy process that requires in-depth research on suitability and the alternatives. Overindulgence in this procurement process could make you lose focus on the progress of the business. Ensure that both the hardware and software components of the new technology are compatible with the legacy systems.
Get it right the first time. Failure is very costly.
Scalable, Flexible Solutions
Business technology solutions increase efficiency in business operations and should not be a hindrance to efficiency. When shopping for a solution, you should confirm its capacity vis-à-vis your current and future needs. A rigid solution for a growing business gives little room for flexibility and hence becomes a hindrance to your growth. Flexible solutions are cost effective because they can scale. Scalability ensures that the performance of the system is not limited. This flexibility guarantees minimum business interruption when the capacity expands beyond the regular scope. Your business also avoids incurring the cost of purchasing a bigger system and the risk of losing out on the opportunity for growth.
With cloud computing technology, businesses can now use technology as a service. Software, infrastructure, or platform “as a service” provides scalable and flexible IT solutions that can be customized to meet unique business needs. Cloud computing is also cost efficient because the services are charged according to usage.
Some of the business IT solutions that are both flexible and scalable for businesses include:
- Cloud services
- VoIP telephony
- Hosted email
- Virtual helpdesk and support
- Productivity suites and software as a service
