Technology has transformed how business is conducted, and IT departments have shifted from organizational support roles into business drivers that empower innovation and support long-term organizational goals. However, with every new technology comes new security vulnerabilities. Data breaches, ransomware attacks, and other cyber crimes are escalating in frequency, intensity, and cost, and hackers are more educated, skilled, and well-funded than ever before.
When implemented correctly, mobile technology can transform your business by shortening the sales cycle, allowing you to build deeper relationships with your existing customers and prospects, and making it possible for your employees to work anytime, from any place in the world. However, full mobile enablement will impact your entire IT infrastructure, and there is no “one size fits all” solution. Proper planning and implementation are crucial.
Cloud services allow businesses to significantly expand their digital storage space and take advantage of cutting-edge technologies without having to make capital investments on IT infrastructure and hire additional staff to maintain it. Self-service provisioning, scalability and agility, and a pay-per-use price structure are among the many benefits of cloud computing.
Keeping track of the pricing, procurement, provisioning, and service management of your organization’s network, data, and telecom services consumes an enormous amount of monetary and human resources. Further complicating the issue is that your vendors’ reference data and invoicing are often not aligned with your company’s own data, making it extremely difficult or even impossible for you to determine if your organization is overspending or if the services you are buying are meeting your short-term needs and supporting your long-term goals.
