IT sector challenges
Checkmark IT works with a range of clients across many different sectors, and we are well-placed to help you address the unique challenges found with running IT departments.
In the 21st century, the IT sector faces challenges and threats that are more sophisticated and complex than ever. A significant part of this can be attributed to digital transformation, a process that is rapidly changing our society, and importantly, the way IT functions.
As a result of digital transformation, new IT solutions are constantly proliferating the market, adding complexity and difficult decisions to be made about the way your IT infrastructure functions. It can be tricky for IT professionals to identify, source and implement solutions because of the sheer number of features IT products have these days.
Using storage as an example, it can either be dumb or smart. Dumb storage is simply an dumping ground for our data. We don’t know who is using what storage, and which applications are consuming excessive storage space. Smart storage solutions such as Nimble, Simplivity and 3Par fix that problem. They contain analytics to monitor storage, so you can identify problems before they even occur. Some of these solutions also include data security and protection at the storage level - creating an additional layer of security for your data.
A wider choice of IT solutions, and in particular, cloud-based solutions, have contributed to an increase of shadow IT, which in turn, can increase the security threats an organisation faces, if bespoke IT systems are not vetted, installed and operated properly. Shadow IT can cause teams to splinter, silo and operate independently outside of approved business practices. These issues ultimately harm productivity and efficiency of the business as a whole.
Budgetary issues can pose serious challenges for organisations we work with. IT is considered an integral part of the underlying infrastructure of an organisation, but more often than not, management are reluctant to commit the necessary finances and resources to acquire innovative technologies such as hybrid IT, composable infrastructure or cloud technology. As such, IT departments lack the tools they need to be as productive and efficient as they could be.
Checkmark IT has an intimate understanding of the challenges facing IT professionals At the heart of everything is the unwavering dedication to finding solutions to your specific problems. We’ll act as your partner to ensure your IT infrastructure can continue to be fit-for-purpose, perform effectively and meet your ever-changing requirements.
