We welcome back fellow Northeast Ohio blogger, Brett Harney, of Corporate Technologies Group, to share their whitepaper with our IT Support blog subscribers on ten and a half secrets you can use to reduce your technology costs when it comes to your network bandwidth and connections:
Forrester Consulting conducted a survey regarding cutting IT budgets and how companies are operating with reduced IT spending, while still trying to maximize their network performance. A few items they found:
- 76% of companies are either concerned or very concerned about the rising pressure to reduce IT costs.
- 72% of companies say they are either concerned or very concerned with reducing IT operational costs so they can invest more in products and services.
- 40% of IT budgets nowadays are consumed by investments in infrastructure, making it difficult to find ways to save cash.
- Despite pressure to keep costs low, 37% of IT decision-makers expect their budgets to remain the same during the next twelve months, while 43% say that their spending will rise from between 5% to more than 10% in the next year.
With stagnant budgets and rising costs, the dilemma for companies is obviously focused on how to reduce IT spending so they can invest in new products and services, bringing more revenue at a greater profit margin. And of course, nobody wants to impact quality of service their IT network delivers. So how can this be accomplished?
