It’s the Circle of Life for your Tech Hardware
What is involved in a Technology Refresh?
Businesses refresh their systems to update their existing IT hardware and applications. It can also be the beginning point for a start-up company that needs a foundation to run their business. Whatever the case may be, implementing a complete network takes a proven strategy. There are five steps to follow when undertaking a technology refresh project:
- Evaluation & Planning
- Network Design
- Installation & Testing
- User Training
- Final Debrief
- Ongoing Support
When should I start planning a Technology Refresh?
Plan to refresh your servers, network switches, and firewall devices on the fifth year. After five years, hardware is generally no longer supported by the manufacturer. Hence the replacement parts are hard to find. This causes more disruptions and even downtime for your business. When it comes to PC’s the refresh cycle is shorter, about three years. As technology advances, new applications are requiring more and more resources. The older computers can’t handle the demands and as a result, performance drops. Make sure you plan ahead for your next refresh.
I do not need a full refresh. Do you support smaller projects?
Yes. Do you only need to improve your network security? Do you need to install a new business application? Or do you need to set up wireless access in your office?
