Building your IT Systems
Computer Network Technology Requirements
Computer Network Technology moves fast. The importance of ‘keeping up’ is essential, not just to keep things working but to ensure that you are compliant with the latest in security requirements. What would you do if you were hacked, or if some client data was lost or stolen, perhaps a disaster such as fire, flood or theft/malicious damage. Of course we all hope for the best and presumably ensure that everything is insured. Insurance, however, cannot get your data back or get your business running again in the event of a disaster. A compliant computer network is essential in enabling ‘business continuity’, ‘disaster recovery’, data backups (both onsite and offsite) are essential. Your technology requirements are not simply “what server do I need” but the technology that you require considers the industry that you are in, the compliance requirements with regards to your client data and your recovery requirements should you have a technology blackout.
When its time to upgrade
When do you consider upgrading your equipment? Maybe when it fails? Maybe after 5 years?

This will maximise retu on investment and instil confidence in your clients so that they are assured that you can always supply what they need.
