Big Data, The CIA Triad, Crowdstrike, Mircosoft Teams, and Cisco Meraki. At some point over the last few years, you have heard these names during numerous discussions about your business’ IT structure. They represent the latest technologies to make access and delivery of data faster and less expensive. And, as you continue to hear about them, the more they appeal to you.
How to Implement
However, you don’t know how to implement them. You’ve asked members of your IT team about them. They know how it well it works together; however, they handle level 1 and 2 issues. They don’t deal in project planning and upgrades. So, you’re stuck in the same place as when you first heard the names.
Or, perhaps not. There is a way to design, test, and implement a new hardware/software/security infrastructure without hiring full-time staff.
IT Consulting Firms
Companies like KnightsBridge Resources help businesses of any size put a plan of action together to change the way they handle technology. Normally, these companies are staffed with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in a number of IT areas. Thus, they can address all your needs at once.
The first step to working with an IT consulting firm is having them evaluate your existing infrastructure. Then, they sit down with your and your IT staff to determine what equipment, applications, and policies are needed to stay even with or ahead of your competition. IT Consulting firms work within your existing budget to find solutions. While their goal is to sell their services, they also know they won’t be hired if suggested prices are out of reach.
Once an agreement is made, firm’s team members become a temporary part of your IT staff. They help to design the infrastructure and develop new policies and procedures. In addition, they train the existing staff on the new environment so they’re prepared to take over at some point in time.
Start your journey toward a new IT world. Contact a consulting firm in your area to determine if they offer a free price estimate. From there, you can move forward.
