Is it Time for a Technology Reset?
Have you had that moment when you look around at your servers and workstations and realize your hardware is older than your children? Or maybe you were in a meeting asking questions and it took forever and multiple spreadsheets to get the answers to everything you have asked? Rather than trying to go back and reorganize, upgrade your hardware and software and parse through endless files, maybe it’s time to start over. You need a technology reset.
Resetting how you think about technology isn’t going to be all smooth sailing, and there is going to be a lot to learn and experience. So what should a technology reset include?
- Hardware. That’s right, everything else you do won’t be effective if you don’t first start with your hardware. Get rid of anything that is old. Replace any old hardware with brand, new machines that will be equipped to handle everything else new you are adding.
- Cloud tools. Simply put, in place of the software you used to depend on, switch to Cloud and web tools. Most of the applications you need to use are accessible anywhere in a web browser.
Don’t fret: Reset. Remember, the tools aren’t as important as the mindset. Technology is going to continue to change, and by being flexible and open minded, you can use it to your advantage. If you’re waiting for the next new tool or device, you’ll get left behind. Technology is the heart of your business and keeps everything running smoothly.
