Understanding your IT system’s health is critical to improving workflows, mitigating errors and preventing disruptions and cyberattacks. Organizations that implement regular assessments are far less likely to experience interruptions to operations, because they can forecast problems and institute the corrections needed to keep business moving forward.
However, too many companies put off assessing their IT systems – either due to budgetary restraints, mismanagement or confusion. It is easy to let this happen when so many other tasks require attention, but it is better to consider conducting an assessment as a routine checkup, just like you would with your personal health.
The goal of an IT assessment is to optimize and create efficient IT systems to manage costs, reduce risks and improve governance and security. Put simply, an assessment tells you what is working well, which areas need improvement and where focus must be applied. When enterprises conduct assessments, they gain insight and confidence and can run their business knowing an unforeseen problem will not undermine their objectives.
As it evolves and improves, the nature of technology requires even the most technologically adept companies to evaluate their IT solutions vigilantly. As a starting point, IT systems should always work in concert toward meeting stated business goals. Any piece of the system that does not meet these goals must be analyzed and either removed or improved. An assessment can answer many questions including:
- What is our cybersecurity maturity level?
- Do our current IT solutions follow industry best practices?
- How much more or less do we spend on IT compared to our competitors?
- Do we have a disaster relief plan, and how does it integrate with our IT system?
- Where can we improve?
- Where can we reduce costs?
- Does our IT support our stated business objectives?
- What action steps do we need to take next?

A thorough IT assessment should help you see where you may be vulnerable to a cybersecurity breach. This is done by reviewing your entire infrastructure and determining its overall security health. InfoSystems assesses your risk, benchmarks areas in need of improvement and gives you a plan to patch any holes proactively. A cybersecurity assessment is critical to ensuring that your business always remains operational.
When you partner with InfoSystems for an IT assessment, your organization receives a best-in-class service designed to help you lead with confidence, make sure your technology performance is optimized and pave the way for stability and growth.
Remember, it’s easy to put off assessing your IT system, just like it’s easy to put off going to the doctor. But it’s in your organization’s best interest to maintain the health and longevity of the technology your business depends on to run. An IT assessment gauges your computer systems’ overall health and performance and provides a comprehensive report detailing security gaps, necessary upgrades, capability limitations and more.
How your company manages its servers and storage has a significant impact on your ability to scale. Servers, storage systems and SAN are necessary components of growth and day-to-day operations. InfoSystems can guide you to make the right decisions without having to sacrifice capability and performance for price.
