Jan 12, 2024

Set Up Some Tech-Fueled New Years Resolutions

Many people worldwide share similar New Year’s resolutions — to eat healthier, engage in more physical activity or explore new destinations. However, have you thought about the resolutions for your business? One good idea is to consider managed IT services for 2024. After all, 66% of companies are gearing up to increase their IT budgets in the new year1 as technologies, IT strategies and cybersecurity measures continue to evolve. To keep up with these changes, embracing managed IT solutions is key.

In this blog, we’ll discuss the five can’t-miss managed IT services to consider implementing in the new year.

 

5 Managed IT Solutions to Elevate Your Business This Year

 

Remote Monitoring – For Real-Time Visibility

The trend for remote work continues to stay in 2024. While remote work poses numerous benefits for businesses, it also comes with challenges. One such challenge is the difficulty in monitoring security vulnerabilities and the overall health and status of systems or equipment.

Fortunately, a managed IT solution like remote monitoring provides your organization with comprehensive, real-time visibility into laptops, desktops or cloud assets from any location. Should unexpected issues pop up, remote monitoring allows for quick and easy remediation, helping you prevent additional operational costs.

 

Backup and Disaster Recovery – For Peace of Mind

You never know when disaster will strike, whether natural or manmade. An unforeseen event like a cyberattack has the potential to jeopardize critical data and disrupt operations, leading to costly downtime. That’s where the value of backup and disaster recovery services comes in — they safeguard and back up your data in case it is lost, stolen or otherwise damaged.

Even more importantly, these services play a pivotal role in ensuring compliance with the safeguarding of sensitive consumer data. Face a data breach, and your business could end up with damaging legal and financial repercussions. Consequently, implementing backup and disaster recovery services is the perfect answer to finding peace of mind and a comprehensive cybersecurity solution.

 

Lifecycle Management – For Improved Productivity

Perhaps your company’s IT infrastructure needs a complete revisit in the new year. Do you know how your hardware and software are holding up? Are there upgrades or updates you’ve been putting off? Are you nervous that you’ll need to carry out some full replacements soon? That’s where lifecycle management comes in.

Lifecycle management includes monitoring, managing and optimizing your technological assets to ensure they get the most value over their lifetime. Outdated assets are safely retired, and ongoing maintenance ensures upgrades and repairs are performed swiftly and without issue. By implementing lifecycle management, your tech will operate at peak performance and allow end users to accomplish their work more productively.

 

IT Help Desk Services — For 24/7/365 Support

Getting support when you need it is imperative to keeping operations up and running and boosting company morale. IT help desk support, like the one that HOCS Consulting offers, provides onsite and remote, 24/7/365, global support. Whether you encounter persistent issues with hardware malfunctions or password mishaps, having reliable tech support is essential for easing the frustration.
