Why Your Business Should Prioritize Technology Gaps?

Why Your Business Should Prioritize Technology Gaps?

To make sure you better understand gaps in different parts of your business, a technology audit can help you determine the best way to refresh IT components. Prioritizing and addressing gaps in your infrastructure will make sure your goals and vision are not affected.

You first want to map your IT infrastructure to see your dependencies, peak usage times, and failover opportunities. When taking systems offline to refresh them, you want to make sure work is not entirely halted. Refreshing each system at low-use times will make sure work can still flow.

Next you want to address your highest risks and vulnerabilities. Since most organizations can’t work on all problems simultaneously, you want to give your attention to the most crucial issues first. You can identify your high-priority gaps from solutions that provide reports after an audit. Once you addressed the highest priority gaps, you can start looking at anything you think could grow into a severe problem in the future. After dealing with your most critical gaps, if your budget allows it, you may also want to deal with what is recommended.

Making sure you take care of gaps in your business should always be a high priority of yours. If you are unsure and would like to identify any gaps you may have in your business, please contact us for a free consultation at (630)940-1718.
