Build a stable IT infrastructure to harness emerging technologies
Research has indicated that companies who embrace new technologies and integrate them into their strategic plans have greater success than those who fail to do so.
However, this is no small task. Cloud computing, intelligent software, big data and mobile computing are affecting all industries. On top of those, you may be expected to harness 3-D printing, autonomous vehicles, fuel cells or robotic prosthetics in order to help your business to stay competitive in your specific industry.
If that weren't enough, cyber-security threats are increasing every year. Smaller enterprises will be searching for CTO candidates who have a firm grasp on cyber-security and can weave best practices into the organisation’s overall technology strategy.
Feeling overwhelmed? We can help.
When you invite a managed IT partner to become a trusted part of your team, they take on the ongoing hosting and monitoring for your IT infrastructure.
Whether you require managed IT support, remote network monitoring or resilient disaster recovery, an MSP will allow you to focus more on new technologies externally, and how to creatively integrate them.
Cloud and managed hosting go hand-in-hand with development. We understand that budgets are tight, and it’s not always feasible to build a fast, powerful production environment to test and develop new apps or services. Slower, older production environments won’t be able to indicate live performance, which hinders your development and efficiency.
Cloud services allow you to:
Because cyber-security threats are evolving so quickly, MSPs are on the frontlines of new firewalls, anti-virus technology and email security.
An outside perspective can help you to identify weak spots in your infrastructure where you could be vulnerable to cyber-attacks, malware or phishing. MSPs offer valuable resources like pen testing, security awareness training and streamlined multi-factor authentication.
As a CTO you know that you can't be an expert in everything. That's why managed IT is so valuable!
Instead of spending more resources to train your internal team, managed services give you access to experts in PCI-DSS, cyber security and cloud hosting. This depth of experience helps you to make strategic decisions with confidence. The more niche your industry is, the less likely you are to be on the cutting edge of new cloud computing technologies. Managed IT takes the everyday burden of system maintenance and frees you to become an expert in your field.
