Do you value flexibility in your IT infrastructure? A lot of fast-growing companies do. They feel that the added flexibility can attract talent. The challenge is the need to support a wide range of computers, servers, operating systems, and software. So, you end up with more complexity in your IT infrastructure.
The problem with complexity is that it can increase your costs for IT support significantly. That is why we recommend standardizing your IT equipment and software in order to reduce complexity and improve your IT team’s efficiency. However, you also need to find the right balance between flexibility and standardization for your organization. If standards are too strict, it can feel constricting in terms of options. If the standards are too flexible, there is no point in having them.
If you choose to develop standards, here are some of the things you want to focus on:
- Operating systems
- Standard and specialized software
- Networking equipment
Standardizing your IT equipment and software reduces the likelihood of conflicts and incompatibility between different software and equipment and allows your IT team to provide faster and more effective support to users.
