How investing in IT is the ultimate strategy to increase productivity?
Outdated technology and in particular IT systems i.e. Servers, workstations, printers, network devices and backup systems costs small and midsize companies time and money. For any SMB business to be successful in today’s competitive marketplace there is a need for systems that can provide a reliable foundation that can empower its workforce to be innovative and consequently exceed its customers’ expectations. Building these systems, however, requires IT capacity and capability.

It seems as a core challenge for small or midsize companies with few IT resources in-house to plan for transforming their IT and to adopt emerging technologies. Existing IT resources are already dealing with too many help-desk requests related to problems with an aging system that are just too urgent to be queued for the business continuity aspect of the whole organization. However, time and energy availability for IT resources are essential for strategic planning of the IT transformation. This may involve researching, pricing, qualification and implementation of a new network, hardware and software. Another obstacle for the whole process is the affordability of the solutions. However, with many leasing options available from many hardware vendors companies can now afford enterprise-level solutions that are affordable for a small and midsize business.
