OVERVIEW

With the constant change in technology solutions and services, it is a good business practice to periodically perform a business IT assessment. An IT network assessment will provide helpful information to ensure compliance, best practices and gauge the level of service and technology performance, productivity and profits (ROI).

A review of your technology on a regular basis, or during a change in business direction, will allow you to identify the changes needed to keep your technology current and help you determine whether your technology is helping you reach your business goals.

Computer Security / Threat Protection.

Cyber criminals are hard at work, devising new ways to bypass security layers so they can steal your corporate data or otherwise interfere with your business. Too often they succeed. Is your company exposed to unnecessary risk?

Information Backup / Disaster Recovery.

Protecting your client information and other sensitive data is priority number one. A single data loss or breach can result in heavy financial penalties, a damaged reputation and the loss of your client’s trust.

Data Management.

The administrative requirements to acquire, validate, store, protect and process data and by which its accessibility, reliability and timeliness are ensured to satisfy the needs of the business.

Detailed Documentation.

Knowing the limitations of your technology is highly dependent on the level of detailed documentation that exists of the network. Drawings, Logs, Configuration, Inventory, Schedules, Rules, Licensing and Vendor information all play a role in management.

Network Infrastructure.

As your networks converge and grow, it is essential that they remain robust, flexible and secure. Is your network ready for new voice, data and video applications? Do you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your current infrastructure?

New Technology Adoption.

While adoption of new technology varies from business to business, it is important to make sure your vision is not restrained by the lack of new technology solutions.

Industry Compliance.

Highly-regulated industries are often legally required to meet specific regulations regarding the operation of their businesses. Primarily the storage, retention, security and data management practices for critical data.

Business Communications.

Review information technology solutions that together provide you with the ability to advance the way that your business communicates with your customers, vendors and partners.
