The New Normal: Is your business’ IT infrastructure ready?

In 2021 and beyond, investing in strong IT infrastructure is crucial. Is your business ready for the ‘new normal’ of remote work and other changes that impact IT necessities?

Prepare for security-conscious remote work

In the aftermath of the COVID-19 global pandemic, many pundits suggest the 9 to 5, in-office-only work week could change to a ‘3-2-2’ week, where many employees will be given the option to work 3 days in office, 2 days at home (with the standard 2 days off on weekends).

Remote work may work with trusted and reliable teams. Yet it also raises challenges around IT infrastructure, such as ensuring employees have access to data that was traditionally hosted on internal servers only. Does your business have sufficient cloud-based solutions, access controls and other IT infrastructure to meet remote work’s unique IT requirements?

Ensure your infrastructure allows the right work to be done anywhere, any time.

Choose security-savvy IT support

Cyber security and other IT challenges facing businesses are constantly evolving. In 2020, a major cyberattack compromised thousands of organisations and facilities around the world, including the US federal government. The Guardian called it the ‘worst-ever’ cyberattack of its kind.

With serious cybercrime part of the new normal, we believe it’s shrewd business to have professional and agile managed cyber security solutions that allow you to do business and maintain productivity, safely.

Decrease the drag of local legacy systems

The technological landscape is constantly changing. Throw remote work and an increasingly global workforce into the mix and it’s important to have agile, secure, global-business-ready IT systems that avoid the sluggish pace of legacy systems. Adapt faster by investing in scalable, decentralized IT support and systems.

Modernize core IT infrastructure

Investing in infrastructure that is fully modernised offers ongoing benefits. Coordinating IT solutions on-premises and off, in the cloud and on internal systems, will ensure that your technology is capable of meeting new challenges, instead of playing catchup with the latest technological innovations.
