A Robust IT Ecosystem – Key to Success
In the last couple of decades, ways of doing business have changed significantly. Most of the manual processes have been moved to automated processes. Also, some of the tasks are either being completely automated or being eliminated from standard processes across various industries. This has helped many organizations to remain ahead of the curve of their competitors. Few organizations were having great visionary leaders who could understand the true value of the technology and automation for their organization so they reaped the maximum benefit of the technology for their organization.
But many times, it became an overburden for the leaders as they were unable to balance out their time between core and technology advancement activities. The overdependence on leaders for every such decision has either slowed down the entire decision or the implementation processor had an impact on the other critical dependencies or core business. Since these organizations could not bear the cost of the expensive in-house IT resources and IT recruitment, many of the organizations continued to suffer or could grow only up to a certain extent.
The cost of IT resources remained higher in the industry so keeping an experienced IT internal team along with the rest of the core demand became next to impossible for many small enterprises resulting in Technology advancement was left far behind.
In the last few years, the focus has changed to redefine the success by using the digital transformation in Industry 4.0 or Service 4.0 Era. Though the resource cost still remains higher other costs like CRM software, hardware, internet, and high-end devices have come down drastically. So it provides a great opportunity for any Small Enterprises to reassess their vision and redraw their IT roadmap and achieve the business goal by utilizing the technology fullest.
To beat the costly IT consulting effort, Small Enterprises can now take a Virtual CIO service and HR shared services. This service helps them to draw the IT roadmap keeping the organization’s vision in mind. It also helps in shortlisting the right product for the organization. Most of the time, any new technology implementation becomes challenging or takes more time from the key stakeholders resulting in a tough balancing act by the founders or decision-makers. It helps them to offload some of the technical decision-makings, selection of the right product, implementation of the applications within time, budget, reaping the benefit in a time-bound manner, and getting an early return on the investment.
