Does your organization have a wide range of computers, servers, operating systems, and software? This happens in a lot of organizations, particularly fast growing ones. Leaders want to be flexible when attracting talent. However, it also adds complexity to managing your IT infrastructure.

A more complex IT infrastructure can increase your costs for IT support significantly. To reduce the complexity and improve your IT team’s efficiency, we recommend that you standardize your IT equipment and software. The important thing is to find the right balance of flexibility and standardization for your organization. If the standards are too strict, it can feel constricting in terms of options. If the standards are too loose, there is no point in having them.

As you develop standards, here are some things you want to standardize:

  • Computers
  • Operating systems
  • Software
  • Servers
  • Networking equipment

When you standardize your IT equipment and software, you minimize the likelihood of conflicts and incompatibility between different software and equipment. This allows your IT team to provide faster and more effective support to users.
