The only constant in life is change, especially when it comes to the technology we use to help run our businesses. The pace of that change is continuing to move at a quicker pace, whether as a result of major innovations like cloud computing or the impact of economic events in your region.
Don’t look at technology as a burden, it should be an asset—one that helps you to respond quickly to change. Technology should make your life easier providing the flexibility to adapt quickly to changing business needs – whether expanding the infrastructure that powers your business applications, or adding the new PCs, devices and applications that help your employees become ever more productive.
A lot of small and midsize businesses are looking to cloud technologies to provide flexibility and help adapt more quickly to change. However, many aren’t going with an “all or nothing” strategy. These businesses are choosing “hybrid” approaches, keeping some systems on-site and moving others to the cloud where it makes the most sense for their businesses.
HWT have provided a number of hybrid solutions to customers. These range from hosted desktops with Microsoft Office 365 providing email functions through to local Window’s servers with cloud accounting solutions. No single solution fits all businesses, many factors can influence what solution a business chooses. You may decide to move certain services to cloud solutions due to an increase in staff, new offices joining or simply to remove services from the local office for backup and disaster recovery purposes.
What is important is having an IT partner who understands what solutions are available and giving you the choices not just because it is what they are comfortable selling.
