Up-to-date operating systems, frequent and scheduled patches, and 24/7 monitoring can help mitigate the risks of system failure and increase efficiency.
Technology empowers our businesses to execute client-focused projects, deliver new and differentiated services, and grow revenues. We understand the speed at which a company can operate directly translates to the value it produces. Therefore, one must strive to eliminate disruptions in their workday that can hinder production schedules.
How does one mitigate the risk of system failure and potential work-day hindrances?
The best way to prevent system failures is by ensuring your network remains healthy. This can be accomplished through frequent patches, having the current hardware, a robust help-desk service, and stable and secure cloud services.
Software and Hardware Working Hand in Hand to Promote Efficiency
Software is ever-changing to meet your demands and the updates needed to ensure you’re running at top efficiency can sometimes prove to be obstructive when done in the middle of the workday. If these patches aren’t completed, they could pose a security risk to your network and ultimately, your business. If these patches aren’t scheduled appropriately, they could disrupt your workday and you’ll lose out on valuable time.
Software is only a fraction of the battle – having the latest and most current hardware is critical. Your robust software requires the hardware to keep up with the demands of your business. Out-of-date hardware will decrease your network security and will also decrease your personnel efficiency. Businesses need to ensure they have a steady and reliable hardware fulfillment pipeline.
At Your Service, Day or Night
Remote work has taken the world by storm and what was once a luxury for most employees is now commonplace. This new and agile workforce isn’t constrained to the typical 9 to 5 work schedule we are all used to. Employees and employers alike have found remote work to have increased productivity. Long gone are the days were the “I was stuck in traffic” excuse can be used. Employees now find themselves working from their bedroom, a shared office space, a coffee shop or café, or even their kitchen table. This new and agile workforce presents a new problem though – if your employees are working around the clock, who do they call at 10 P.M. for IT help? If there is a system outage, who fixes it outside of regular business hours?
Organizations are now realizing their employees and staff are working outside of normal business hours or are working remotely while abroad. Some businesses find themselves having employees in multiple time zones around the world and with IT support to cover them all. To remedy this issue, you need a 24×7 Help Desk capable of helping your staff at any given time.
Be Always on the Look-Out
The best way to prevent a problem would be to know it’s going to happen, right? Or others might say, “in hindsight, foresight would’ve been nice.”
Having a dedicated group of engineers to monitor your network, ensure it remains healthy, and avert issues before they arise is a necessity in today’s business world. Oftentimes, issues can be caught early on and solved before they create larger and more difficult to solve problems.
