Budgeting, IT planning
Technology advances rapidly and is usually highly publicized. This means users, managers at all levels, and even competitors pressure IT staff to implement new technology, simply because it is new. The question really is whether any given new technology is a good fit for the organization.
Any organization that has accumulated computer and network assets over the years must face the budgetary realities associated with needed upgrades of hardware and software. Unfortunately, most companies have no quick way of tracking their IT inventory (both hardware and software licenses), making the chore of building annual budgets a tedious guessing game.
Since every organization is different, the IT value of each new technology will vary with the organization's strategic goals. Efrat Networks has the experience and the tools tailor annual IT planning, based on the priorities and strategic goals of the organization. In most cases, Efrat Networks can create a detailed summary of a company's current IT inventory, including hardware and licenses, in a matter of minutes. This means that we are capable of building 1-, 3-, and 5-year budgets that are accurate and implementable. To make the most of any new technology, an IT manager needs a solid understanding of the organization and the challenges its users and markets face.
