If you manage an IT/telecom department, chances are you've been struggling to keep up with all the demands of a new generation of users as well as how to implement new technologies.And yet, ironically, your efforts may be hampered by outdated technologies and processes within your own department. It's a disconnect that may be costing you credibility and money.
Many IT departments continue to operate on a shoestring budget, unaware that there are thousands of dollars ready to be reclaimed due to things like outdated evergreen contracts, billing errors, and paying for services and equipment they have long stopped using. That means that, along with updating your existing technologies should be efforts made to take a deeper look at your billing each month. There are plenty of areas that can be tightened up. You just need to know where to look!If your IT department is sitting behind the curve in the areas above, you may be exposing yourself and your team to a level of management scrutiny that could prove damaging to the future of your department. There are some who even believe that IT departments are becoming obsolete, now that we have access to high quality, integrated cloud-based applications which are automatically updated and accessible 24/7.
