IT Modernization and Optimization

If you’re still wondering whether an IT modernization strategy makes sense for your business, consider it, instead, as your next step toward ongoing digital transformation for your organization. 

In an environment that values up-to-date hardware, reliable remote access, and more efficient processes, businesses should look at reducing their reliance on on-premises environments and consider cloud modernization projects.

Overcome Technical Debt and End-of-life Hardware Challenges

When your hardware reaches the end of its life, you’ll be forced to make a decision. Will you invest budget and cycles to maintain or shift and refresh your infrastructure? How will you get alignment and move forward to update your aging hardware? How do you convince your organization to refresh hardware when it’s a less flashy initiative?

 

Older, outdated hardware increases costs and technical risk, while also limiting agility. Organizations that hold off on refreshing that hardware are prone to experiencing these downsides.

 

To overcome this, businesses need to assess their systems, understand the lifecycle plan for their equipment, and evaluate modern alternatives, like the cloud. 

 

A secure and modern data center is a requirement for businesses looking for cloud-based infrastructure support. But there’s often no need to take on the building of a facility yourself. Working with a chosen partner is almost like working with a utility. Providers can offer the connectivity and infrastructure to move your cloud journey forward, without having to worry about the day-to-day.

Adapt to the Remote Work Pivot

Propelled by the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses have needed to rapidly adapt to changing work environments. Ushering in more remote workers than ever before. Organizations need to strongly reevaluate all technologies to support this new way of working including laptops, conferencing software, productivity and collaboration suites, and security for personal devices. 

 

Many organizations have embraced cloud-based software for increased collaboration.  Managed Microsoft 365 allows employees to access their work from any device. A virtual private network (VPN) can allow those employees to work securely.

No matter the situation, innovating by hybrid cloud adoption can help improve the longevity of your organization. This ensures that your systems, and your business, will be around for years to come.

Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure Helps Address M&A Challenges 

Develop a Plan to Move Off-premises

Even if your team can handle a move to an off-premises environment, it doesn’t mean that it’s always a good use of their time. You still need to have staff on hand to keep things running. 

 

Identify what your team can and can’t do, and bring in outside help to fill in the gaps. This can come in handy when you’re developing a plan and executing a cloud migration.

 

There are other things to plan in your modernization efforts. For example, you’ll also want to consider ways to modernize legacy systems and applications.
