With the Spooky Season upon us, I thought I would run you through the 5 biggest occult related fears IT support staff have, and a few of our recommended solutions.
2016 has heralded in a new phase for the ‘cloud’, it has quickly become one of the decade's most defining technology within the industry, developing from a trivial IT buzz-word, into a point of unavoidable prominence.
A good few months ago I composed a blog post entitled ‘3 Myths of Moving to the Cloud’, which detailed some common misconceptions many individuals hold surrounding the cloud and stated with a clear viewpoint that perhaps the cloud was not the right decision for every business. Before making any definite decisions on moving services to the cloud it’s imperative to make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into. So with that in mind, I highly recommend that you give the post a read before continuing on. It can be found, here.
Okay, so you’re still with me! You’ve been swept away with the zeitgeist and you’ve confirmed that it is indeed the right decision for you and your business. Great! Now only one impending question rem ...
Everyone knows about Office 365 hosting your business data, but it's more than just a great place to host your email, calendar and contacts. Here are 5 things Office 365 can help with your business that you may not know about.
Without a shadow of a doubt the current buzz word for SMEs when discussing Business IT is the "Cloud".
The cloud does carry some positive connotation. It's meant to be cheap, your data is accessible from anywhere in the world and everything is managed for you. Sounds fantastic right?
The fact of the matter is, when it sounds too good to be true it generally is. Don't get me wrong, the cloud has some great solutions (see our post about great cloud based email hosting here), we use it heavily at Intuitive, but overall, the cloud is very immature for most SMEs to jump straight in.
In this post I'm going to discuss a case study for one of our clients that wanted to embrace the cloud but discovered they were not ready for the change.
Company X, like most SMEs wanted to find efficiencies in their IT costs. Their Microsoft SBS Server had served them well but was ageing and it was time for replacement. They used the mail service, file sharing and remote access service to th ...
It’s time. You've been thinking about it for a while now as you've seen other people search and find emails from their phone that date back decades while you can’t receive the email from your client that was sent this morning.
It’s your email hosting and you know it. It’s old and clunky and doesn't give you all the features you need.
Well there is a very simply solution for you and your business. It’s time to upgrade.
A business without its computers and phones up and running is losing money, so the project needs to be well managed to reduce the amount of downtime.
- Ensure you tell your suppliers at the earliest possible time the move is occurring. Get the account managers to scope out the new premises and ensure your services can be transferred to the new location.
- Make sure your disaster recovery plan is up to date. You don’t want to be caught by surprise if something goes wrong.
- Make sure you have warranties for your hardware and make sure it covers the time of your move. A business day warranty won’t help you if you need help on the weekend.
- Ensure you know where devices will be placed in the new premises. Printers, faxes, computers, etc. should all be drawn out on the office floor plan. Coordinate your efforts with the Office Manager.
- Use removalists that have a specialised team for moving hardware. Ensure you are aware of their practices when handling your precious cargo. ...
