Strategy Is Our Focus Technology Is Our Trade
Where Can You Go Without Strategy?
Your technology strategy may have been pretty simple in the beginning. You needed a place to store some documents, some simple software packages, and email to communicate with clients and vendors.
As your business grows you're faced with:
- The need to limit employee access to certain files and folders.
- Remote workers needing to connect to your internal network.
- Compliance regulations.
- IT budget planning.
- More data and greater threats to data security.
You want your business to grow over the next few years, and you've defined a strategy for how you'll get there. But does your strategy include IT considerations? It should.
An IT strategy identifies how you'll handle the issues above based on your business needs. It's a road map of the technologies you'll need to reach the business growth objectives you've defined.
Do I have to attend the strategy meetings?
You should. Although we can't force you to participate in strategy meetings, the best person to attend is the person setting the long-term road map for the business. These conversations focus on where you are today, where you're going, and how you'll get there. We'll talk about adding or eliminating staff, expanding into new markets, developing new lines of business, or acquiring new companies.
I'm a HIPAA covered entity, but I have compliance covered, do I need compliance consulting?
Yes. Our compliance specialist is involved with your organization as much or as little as you need. As your IT company, we've taken on some of the risks associated with the technical components of compliance. It's essential for our own compliance that we verify your physical and administrative security, and you must have documentation from us of your technical compliance.
I just want someone to fix my computers. Can I skip the strategy service?
No. Strategy isn't an added service; it's how we deliver all of our services. If you're looking for a break/fix IT repair vendor, Innovative is not the best fit for you.
A short 15-minute phone call is the best way to find out if we're a fit. We'll talk about your primary business goals and current approach to technology and see if there's an opportunity to improve your current strategy.
