Why An IT Health Check Is Important For Business?

IT Health Check

Is your IT infrastructure letting your organisation down? Perhaps your organisation is experiencing a notable change, such as expansion, office move or the implementation of new cloud technologies. Whatever the scenario, inefficiencies can be costly to a business.  As a result, an IT Health Check can provide clarity by allowing you to identify and mitigate risks and ensure your business technology road map is on track.

What is an IT Health Check?

An IT Health Check (ITHC) is a comprehensive assessment of your business IT infrastructure. As mentioned above, the purpose is to identify any vulnerabilities that exist. This includes security breaches or technology issues that can cause costly disruptions. Overall, it will allow organisations to obtain a clear understanding of the health of their systems including their network infrastructure. Most importantly, as part of the assessment, recommendations are provided when issues are identified within the IT infrastructure. As a result, organisations can take swift action to mitigate any potential threats.

How often should you perform an IT Health Check and what does it involve?

It is recommended that organisations perform a health check every two years.  In fact, there are many advantages of conducting frequent health checks.

These include:

  • Mitigating the risk of security threats
  • Identify IT issues that can affect the function and stability of an IT environment.
  • Assist with financial planning and budgets
  • Assist with providing clarity and direction for signficant infrastructure changes such as business restructure, office moves or technology upgrades, to name a few.

When conducting an IT Health Check, IT professionals will attend your organisation’s premises. A thorough assessment of your hardware and software technology infrastructure will be conducted to ensure best practices are being followed.  After all, the aim of a health check is to eliminate issues to ensure your IT infrastructure runs at optimal performance. Additionally, various technology failure scenarios will also be conducted to identify cyber security vulnerabilities.

Following the assessment, a comprehensive report will be prepared, outlining issues detected. Expert recommendations by our IT professionals will be provided for each of the issues identified.  As a result, organisations can comfortably implement measures with clarity to either rectify, eliminate vulnerabilities or simply ensure your taking the right approach to an exciting new direction.
