In our last blog, we talked about the benefits of investing in an ICT Environment for your business. Today we want to explore the strategies to unlock the full potential of your ICT Environment and make sure it’s assisting your business to thrive.
According to a study done by McKinsey & Company, businesses that leverage advanced automation technologies can boost productivity by 20%. Through automating tasks such as data entry and processing, customer support, inventory tracking, stock control, payment processing, or expense management, you boost efficiency, time management and productivity within your office.
Data Storage & Management:
Utilising your ICT Environment to create centralised storage for your databases, file servers or cloud storage platforms can be a massive time saver. It’ll keep your data safe and secure while allowing you to store and organise large files. You can use your ICT Environment to classify and organise your files efficiently, and provide mechanisms for regular and automated backup schedules, redundant storage systems, and disaster recovery solutions. With an ICT Environment, you can scale your business without worrying about your storage capacity – it’ll allow you to scale your storage infrastructure or add new cloud resources as required.
Privacy & Security:
You can customise your ICT Environment to best suit your business – including ensuring all its privacy functions are hard at work protecting your business data. By implementing access controls such as two-factor authentication, biometrics or access management tools through your ICT environment, you can ensure only authorised personal access to sensitive data and resources. Apply technologies such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems and intrusion prevention systems and VPNs (Virtual private networks) to establish secure connections for remote access and protect against the rise of cyber attacks.
