Uncovering Your Specific Needs
Before businesses start receiving Managed IT Services, they receive a technology assessment. Often times, business owners donâ€™t have a clear picture of their business technology and the impact it has on their organization. Marco's technology assessment solves that problem.
A thorough business technology assessment lets us get to know your business technology inside and out. And we use that information to show business owners and key stakeholders exactly how their current business technology is functioning within their organization.
In other words, a technology assessment lays out the details of your business infrastructure in such a way that youâ€™ll walk away understanding what areas are putting your business at risk and what steps you can take to mitigate that risk. Hereâ€™s how it worksâ€¦
In order to get a baseline for understanding your organizationâ€™s technology, we perform an on-site audit. This audit is the most tech-heavy component of the assessment; but in the simplest terms, it involves deploying software and sending an on-site technician to your location.
Most importantly, the technician moves through an IT assessment checklist, which he uses to build out a picture of your current hardware. In terms of technology assessment tools, the software allows us to gather information on how your current technology is functioning.
Assessing 12 Key Technology Areas
The technology assessment checklist focuses on 12 key areas within a businessâ€™ IT infrastructure. Assessment tools are used to identify any knowable risks and determine how those risks are impacting your business. Here are the 12 key areas assessed:Â
Clear Findings and Actionable Steps
After the data is collected and analyzed, we organize it based on the 12 key technology areas listed above. And, we organize it based on the level of risk each area currently poses to the organization. Each area will be ranked either high risk, moderate risk or up to industry best practices. Then, we outline what those risks are, how they impact your organization and what can be done to decrease or eliminate them.Â
The findings are presented in a clear, non-technical presentation that gives business stakeholders a complete understanding of the current state of their business technology. Our technology assessment templateÂ was developed to show business owners their technology landscape in a way that is easy to understand.
