Is Your IT Team Playing At The Varsity Level?
If the financial analysts are correct, we are heading into a business climate that will be unlike any that we’ve seen in our lifetimes. As a business leader, this can be daunting for you.
To use a sports analogy, you may face the toughest opponent your team has ever faced. As the “coach” in this scenario, it’s up to you to recruit, train, and field the best team to take on this challenge – the Varsity Team. Are you and your staff ready? If you’re not sure your IT team can handle the opponents lined up against them this year, you may need to think about developing your Team.
IT Is More Important Than Ever
The degree to which you integrate technology into your daily processes gives it the potential to seriously affect your productivity, service quality, and bottom line. If you don’t have your IT performing at Varsity Team level, you may encounter a series of insurmountable and costly obstacles. Consider:
- A poorly managed IT infrastructure can result in expensive downtime for your staff – up to $9,600 per minute.
- It’s estimated that the global cybercrime industry will cause up to $6 trillion in damages in just a few years, with the average phishing attack costing $1.6 million, and the average ransomware attack costing $732,520 (and double that, for organizations that pay the ransom).
- Global IT spending totaled 3.7 trillion last year and is expected to grow another 3.7% this year, signaling an ongoing foundational shift in the business world towards recognizing IT’s role and investing appropriately in it.
Failing to have Varsity Team-level performance can cost you money, put your business at risk, and prevent you from keeping up with more forward-thinking competitors.
