Tip of the Week: This Quick IT Quiz Will Help the Small Business

Tip of the Week: This Quick IT Quiz Will Help the Small Business

When a business uses its technology the right way, it typically has positive effects on the business. That’s not to say that technology is a major priority for EVERY business. There are some business owners that don’t prioritize having the newest, shiniest technology on the market; and, that’s fine, if the business functions efficiently.

For the small business owner whose business is using old technology, it may be difficult to commit financial resources to a full-scale upgrade of your IT systems. At Computerware, we understand that all businesses are different; and, the use of technology can be the key to escaping the month-to-month grind many smaller businesses have come to know. That’s why we’ve outlined this simple eight-question quiz designed to get the small business owner thinking about where their organization’s technology is, and what it really needs out of their organizational information technology.

Question #1 - What technology do we use?

Question #2 - What business problems do we expect technology to fix?

Question #3 - Does the technology that we use support what we do best?

Question #4 - Do we have the expertise to manage this technology?

Question #5 - What are our biggest IT-related costs?

Question #6 - How long have we been using this technology?

Question #7 - Where do we store our data?

Question #8 - Do we have systems in place to protect our data?

These seem like pretty straightforward questions, but by taking some time to think about and honestly answer them, any small business owner will immediately have a better understanding of how effective (or ineffective) their organization’s IT, technology management, and threat mitigation systems are. It will then provide the groundwork for a more detailed conversation about your organization’s IT now and in the future.

If you are thinking of upgrading your organization’s information systems, or if you just want to know how your technology stacks up to your needs, consulting with the IT professionals on staff at Computerware can help you make sense of how to use the answers from the questions above to move your company in the best direction.
