4 Tips for Your IT Plan and Budget

With the business world going digital, today’s organizations need a strong IT framework and dedicated personnel. However, the fluidity of the IT landscape can present challenges to businesses wanting to make informed decisions that will provide long-term value. Here are 4 strategies that can effectively help you plan your IT strategy and budget.

 

Look for Good Talent

It’s no secret that businesses are struggling to find qualified IT professionals. Competition within the industry is fierce and the training costs can be too high for some companies. The good news is that MicroAge Canada’s IT staffing services can help you find the experts you need to help your business grow and thrive. 

 

Outsource If Necessary

Acquiring a full IT department if you’re starting from scratch can be incredibly difficult. If you don’t have the resources to hire an in-house IT professional or team, outsourcing is a great solution! With a managed IT service, you can outsource your IT department to a team of professional experts and win back your time while reducing costs. You can also have peace of mind knowing that security risks are managed.

 

Don’t Cut Corners

When it comes to planning your IT budget, don’t cut corners. Instead, look for well-integrated solutions that can provide value across multiple areas such as payroll, security, or attendance. Although integrating new technology into your business can be exciting, the majority of your IT budget should be reserved for routine expenses including storage, software licenses, and computers. 

 

Take Time to Review 

Create a plan and goals for your IT department on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly basis. Check your staffing around holidays and vacation-heavy times of year and use IT resourcing solutions if needed. Make sure to review your budget more than just once a year as this can help identify areas where you could be cutting costs or where you need to be investing more.
