Year End Budget Spending: Don’t Loose Those Funds
Do you have a bit of IT budget money you may lose as the calendar year ends? The end of the year is the busiest time for many businesses, but it can be especially busy for IT professionals in those businesses who must protect their networks and explain the value of the money they plan to spend.
Focusing on the IT products that you know you will need is a smart way to use the remainder of your budget. Or, you may know a project is coming up and you want to get a jump on the solutions to get it done. Lastly, there may be things that you want to buy just to keep things running smoothly.
If you’re charged with end-of-the-year IT budget spending, here are some questions to ask yourself:
Is your organization invested in IT security? With the proliferation of internet hacking attacks, spend that extra money on making sure your network is as secure as possible with email security, backup and disaster recovery solutions.
Does your organization have new IT projects approved for the new year? If so, get a jump on buying the equipment and/or services that will get that project off the ground.
Does your organization have the networking equipment it needs to manage your business critical data? This includes laptops, mobile devices, servers, routers and internet security applications. Spend leftover money on making your systems up-to-date with the latest equipment and services.
Has your organization invested in IT consulting services to ensure that all of your IT needs are being met while doing it within budget? If not, use the extra funds to hire an IT professional who can work alongside your IT team to get the best bang for your IT bucks.
