How do you ensure that your IT setup is best suited to your business? The obvious answer is to invest in bespoke infrastructure that caters to all the demands and guards against the vulnerabilities that are specific to what you do. But is it really worth the investment?
Bespoke IT delivers on security
Security has become a top priority in the business world, from the board room to the post room. The degree of security inherent in your system could be the difference between keeping cyber criminals out and becoming the next very public victim of a security breach that leaves your customers wondering whether they should have given you any of their data in the first place. With a bespoke IT setup, the key protections are designed specifically for your business and integrated at the points where they are most needed.
There is no other way to ensure true scalability
Bespoke IT setup gives your business the freedom to grow and change, as well as supporting it through inevitable ups and downs. Without a scalable element to it, an IT set up can have the opposite effect, holding a business back and preventing it from reaching its true potential. With a made-to-measure IT system, features such virtualisation allow for a responsiveness to triggers such as growth – or the need to scale back during leaner times. The result is an IT infrastructure that supports where the business is today, not where it could, should or might be under other conditions.
If you want to win at productivity and cost, bespoke IT could be the solution
It tends to be productivity and efficiency within a business that ultimately dictate how successful it is when it comes to generating results. A bespoke IT setup is tailored to the individual drivers for success within a specific business and, as a result, can have a huge impact on productivity. Bespoke IT is designed for the way staff work and tailored to individual business need, which means that it supports better productivity. This kind of approach tends to generate greater ROI than a generic infrastructure that isn’t suited specifically to business need.
Bespoke IT supports business continuity
Downtime could be the result of an external attack or an internal system failure. Whatever the reason behind it, downtime tends to have a fairly devastating impact on business operations. So, for any organisation, working out the fastest route back from an issue that has interrupted operations is going to be crucial. A bespoke IT setup allows for built-in contingencies that enable better management of a potential crisis situation and a faster route back to positive functionality. As the infrastructure has been crafted specifically for your business it is also designed to provide greater support in areas where it is most required.
