The year may be almost halfway gone but that does not mean that you should put off the IT plans that you have designated for 2015. The fact is that for your organization to continue to grow, you need to make sure that you implement time-sensitive IT projects that will move the company forward. As technology continues to evolve, companies that want to remain ahead of the competition must keep up. Following are some projects that your IT Director or your outsourced IT personnel should take care of.
During this time when cyber crimes are at an all time high, enhancing security is very important. Technology system malware threats and data breaches have become more prevalent in the last couple of years. It is important to have a good security plan that will cover your entire network. This includes all software applications, servers, and mobile devices. A managed services provider will provide 24×7 security scanning as well as spam filtering, antivirus, data backup and data recovery.
Switching to the Cloud
If you have not already done so, migrating your applications and servers to the Cloud should be at the top of your “to-do” list. Switching to the Cloud has many benefits including increasing efficiency, lowering your IT costs, and enhancing flexibility or giving you the capacity for future growth. Making the transition to the Cloud will require planning and expertise. It is a good idea to team up with experts who can offer you a cost effective Cloud computing strategy.
Transitioning to VoIP
It is time to update your phone system if you want to get efficiency and the best value for your money. By switching over to Voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP), you can help to increase productivity in your organization. At a time when offices are becoming more flexible or mobile, it is important to have an effective communication system. Not only will you help to enhance the way work is done, you also offer a better customer experience. An MSP will provide comprehensive VoIP hosting as well as help desk solutions.
Optimizing your website
If your website still looks the same way it did five years ago, you are stuck in a rut! Your 2015 website should be based on an enhanced foundation that configures network security, optimizes accessibility, and ensures better functionality for your business requirements. You should work with an MSP to update or build your website in order to ensure that you access all the resources that you need for the website project. Working with experts will ensure that you get much needed technical experience.

Determine what your IT department should handle and look for areas where partnering with an MSP will be beneficial.
