Enterprise solutions, including software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and bring your own device (BYOD), have forever changed the corporate IT environment.
More than five million organizations use Google Apps and Google’s App Engine to power their business IT services. What do they know that others don’t? They know using appropriate technology and Cloud-based services can reduce IT costs, add accountability, increase workforce productivity and help propel their businesses ahead of the competition.
Small to mid-sized business (SMB) technology audits and risk assessments are intended to keep your organization moving forward without breaking the bank on unnecessary IT expenditures.
Conducting an independent technology audit and risk assessment provides a clear and objective view of which technology is helping your business and which is causing inefficiencies that adversely impact your bottom line. The objective of this process is to identify and implement the most appropriate solutions for your organization. The goal is to achieve greater workforce productivity while at the same time, reduce total IT spending.
The audit process starts by interview and by conducting a comprehensive inventory all of your information and communications technology. The purpose of this exercise is to document overall performance, identify strengths and weaknesses and determine opportunities for process improvement.
The SMB audit process helps non-IT decision makers better understand present opportunities and the issues and challenges confronting the organization. A risk assessment analysis of network and computer security also helps identify and define weaknesses, vulnerabilities and threats that put the organization and its customers at risk.
