How IT Staffing Can Save Time & Money

If you’ve ever hired technicians for urgent projects and did not get the seamless results you were expecting, there are other excellent options available. It is important to note, just like in any industry there are IT specialists and IT generalists. There are tasks that can be automated and those that are more complex, such as setting up a large network.

Few small- and medium-sized companies can afford the time or money to staff exactly what is needed to ensure consistent results. Plus, finding qualified IT freelancers can be challenging, particularly if you are not IT savvy and aren’t completely sure what or who you need. For example, there are business owners who think they want to set up a heavy-memory network when they might save time and money using a public cloud environment instead. There is a lot to understand in this ever-changing world of information technology.


Determine Your IT Needs

The best way to get your technology in shape is to take a critical assessment of needs. Good questions to ask your team:

  1. What are your IT business objectives? In other words, how important is IT to meet your business objectives? Can it enhance or disrupt the path to success?
  2. How does IT fit into your company’s workflow? If you haven’t taken a current read on how work flows through your organization, it helps to review each department to see if the workflow can be streamlined in general… and via technology?
  3. Are you considering the Cloud? These days, companies are really starting to understand the advantage of storing information and data within a cloud. Yet, there are companies who are still using antiquated computer systems.
  4. Do you require Big Data storage? If your company is e-commerce or related to storing data, your requirements will be completely different from an enterprise that is locally focused.
  5. What are your current resources? What do you have now in terms of IT talent and equipment? Make a list of what you have vs. what will be needed to be more successful.

If you are not tech-savvy, answering those questions in detail might be difficult. Technology is becoming more simplified, while at the same time it is more complex and advanced. It’s difficult to know exactly what you need when you are not even sure what is available. With the advent of SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, and the cloud, who can keep up?
