Think before you build your own IT infrastructure

Due to the sheer complexity and volume of business, setting up on premise IT infrastructure is the first thing that comes to mind. It is costly. Maintaining IT with in-house or third-party support team is unmanageable.

Regular upgrade, update, patches, security fixes, troubleshooting compatibility issues are important for smooth business operation. Troubleshooting a software issue or printer issue or fixing hardware can sometimes take days due to limited in-house knowledge. Depending on third party can be time consuming due to their response time. For business, IT issues can cost dearly. It can lead to missing order deadlines and business can even lose customers.
