Here are 3 tips from your local friendly Los Angeles IT service provider to help you stay (or get) on track:
1. Don’t slack when it comes to tech.
While it may be true that your business isn’t running the latest, the greatest, or the state-of-the-art IT management systems, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t rely on technology to get the job done.
Computer glitches, software malfunctions, and network problems can cost you time and money, so figure out what needs done and keep your macs, PCs and servers up and running.
2. The cloud is your friend.
The world of using the cloud falls into two camps: those who use the cloud, and those who should be using the cloud. The cloud offers data access, data storage, information workflow management, backup storage, you name it, all of which you could get to quickly and easily and rely on without question.
It gives your small business a point of access across all platforms, is cost-effective, and is encrypted and secure. It surpasses in-house server space on all levels.
3. Backing up data is important.
Cloud backup and disaster recovery, and protecting data is critical to your business. Most mid- to small-sized businesses have some form of guard in place to protect and store their data.
But this doesn’t just mean the most confidential or important information, it’s just as important to store and protect aspects like source code, documents, and even communication like email. Additionally, to safeguard against things like malicious intent, damage to storage medium, and accidental deletion, separate copies of all pertinent data should be made and stored off-site (like in the cloud).
