Companies can be successful in every other area but still struggle with their IT. Brands can be marketing geniuses, product design experts and have the best onboarding in their industry, but they struggle to get computer network-related stuff right.
The costs of a dysfunctional IT team are higher than many businesses expect. It’s not just about inefficiency. A poorly-maintained network can also experience extended downtime, putting a company out of operation for hours or days at a time, causing them to lose business.
For that reason, a well-trained IT team is many companies’ secret weapon. When teams have the right education and skills, they can manage challenges and adapt to pressing business needs more rapidly, enabling the company as a whole to move forward.
For instance, IT teams need to be able to implement new software, change networking standards, and embrace new tools, like the cloud. They shouldn’t leave the companies they represent struggling with legacy systems that simply can’t adapt to modern working practices and consumer requirements.
They should also be adept in database management and security. Firms need teams who can adequately store and back up all their data and protect them from malicious attacks, both internal and external.
But that’s enough from us. The purpose of this article is to introduce the following infographic. It explains in detail why companies so desperately need a well-trained IT staff. It’s not just about offering a help desk. In today’s environment, it is a critical part of any firm’s success strategy.
