3. Disaster Recovery
It happens even in the best Corporations, it's just the nature of the universe. Call it Murphy's law, Chaos Theory, whatever you call it, there is always the probability that something might go wrong. When something goes wrong and you don't have an IT management plan, how nice is it to get behind a server and try to make sense of thousands of cables or on the software side, go ahead and try to figure out which of your 134 PC stations has the lock that is creating havoc within your whole network?
No, it's not very nice. It's not even easy for experts to try and fix a mess in those circumstances. So, instead of trying to do a break fix process of who knows what, the difference is that we have wisely implemented our IT management plan that tells us exactly how your whole IT system is configured. It's a map that shows what cable leads to what port on what switch to which patch panel... you get the point. A map that let us know what is where and why, which people have access to what equipment, we have dated data entries, reports of automatic updates, security logs, you name it...
Imagine the cost of fixing all of that without a map. The IT Management Plan is an investment that will pay for itself many times over, with the savings that'll bring to your business in the long run.
So, then we go ahead and take care of the problem in a scientific and efficient manner. And your files? No worries about that, because your unique plan includes an IT management process for system backups, such as your databases.
