TriYoung Knows IT Services is “Big Business”

     Now that the 21st Century is well anchored in time, “It’s not your Grandpa’s business world” is a reality we all must accept, even those of us who consider ourselves “technological dinosaurs.” And, because by attending to our business we can’t possibly keep up with all of the changes in the world of technology, the idea of seeking an IT Services company has become a necessity and not a luxury!

“To give you some idea of just how big the Computer Services business is,” Julie Young of TriYoung Business Solutions, Inc. in Glendale, Arizona, who specializes in IT Services shared, “you need only consider that in 2013 Global tech spending is forecasted to hit $3.8 billion!”

This represents a 4.1% increase over last year.  A partial breakdown of these numbers show that IT Services spending will increase by 4.5% to some $918 billion; Data Center Systems expenditures will jump to $146 billion, up 3.7% and monies spent on Devices will rise 7.9% to $718 billion.

“With that kind of money being spent, it’s not surprising that IT Services companies are becoming a major player in the world market as well,” Young pointed out.

Young’s comment is supported by the fact that Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a Netherlands-based IT Services firm, has just been named Europe’s top company to work for in 2013.

“We are pleased to have rated the foremost employer across Europe,” D.P. Nambiar of TCS stated.  Nambiar cited the fact that employees are the greatest assets of any company, and TCS has worked diligently to retain their key personnel.

While most of us are not in the market for a firm the size of TCS, we do want to find a firm that meets our needs.  That’s why we need to arm ourselves with as much information and knowledge as we can when we make our choice.
“There are several things you will want to keep in mind during your search,” Young suggested, “including the scope of IT services you are hoping to have provided.”

She was, of course, referring to such issues as IT Consulting; IT Solutions: IT Support; and Business Continuity Planning.  To assist you in your search for an IT Services company, consider the following points:

  • Identify your IT outsourcing goals up front
  • Decide which type of IT Services provider is best suited for your company
  • Don’t let ROI be your only concern
  • Remember that “industry expertise” is not necessarily an advantage
  • Verify “compatibility” between your firm and your IT Services provider

“Unfortunately,” Young said, a pang of regret obvious in her voice, “not everyone in our industry is as scrupulous as one would hope.  So, make sure are choosing a company that has your best interest in mind.”

Young suggested three questions you will want to ask yourself each time an IT Services provider presents a proposal to you:

  • Does the solution suggested actually address a need or issue that I have?
  • How does this technology apply to my business?
  • Will this technology help me generate more business by increasing revenue or productivity?

If you have questions regarding how you can benefit through the efforts of a IT Services provider you may want to contact TriYoung Solutions at 602-424-1700 and Julie and her staff would be happy to assist you in determining the things that you might be lacking with your current IT Solutions program .

Don’t Be a May Fool Either!

The entire IT world celebrated two major holidays on March 31, 2013.  The first, of course, was Easter.  The second, however, might be a tad bit more obscure – – the Third Anniversary of World Backup Day.  Playing on its proximity to April 1st, everyone advised each other, “Don’t be an April Fool – – Backup your files!”

“The key is,” Julie Young of TriYoung Business Solutions, Inc. in Glendale, Arizona, who specializes in IT Consulting AZ, pointed out with a smile in her voice, “while we might celebrate Backup Day annually, you certainly need to backup your materials far more often than that.”

The first question that might come to mind, of course, is, “what should I back up?”  As part of your Business Continuity Planning in Phoenix you will want to backup any and all devices that contain data.  This includes but is not limited to iPods, Computers, Phones and Tablets. On the personal side are your videos, photos, and songs.

“There are many things to consider in this realm,” Young added.  “I think, though, that these four tips will go a long way to get you started on the right track.”

  • Multiplicity – Make more than one copy of your files
  • Make it a Habit – Regularly backup your data
  • Organize – List the types of storage you use and keep the list in a safe place
  • Backup your Backup – It’s not being redundant nor paranoid, it’s being safe

When you are contemplating Data Backup in Phoenix, or Glendale, or anywhere in the state of Arizona for that matter, one of the major decisions you have to make revolves around the “on-premises/ off-premises” issue.  And, there are benefits to each, including but not limited to:

On-Premises

  • You can verify that the equipment used for back-up is working properly
  • You can quickly test to ensure data was preserved
  • You can easily restore in the event a primary server goes down
    • Often better equipment is employed
    • Typically there is better security and climate controls
    • There tends to be an auxiliary power source at off-premises facilities
Off-Premises

“If you find that much of this is above your understanding,” Young advised, “it would, undoubtedly, behoove you to seek IT Services in Phoenix, or Tempe or wherever you might be located.”

If you still have questions regarding “backup” you may want to contact your IT specialist.  Or, you can contact TriYoung Solutions at 602-424-1700 and Julie and her staff would be happy to assist you.

Most business owners do not have the time to invest or the technical background it takes to keep up with the technology trends and the overall innovation of technology itself, let alone, plan a strategy to implement new technology into their business infrastructure. Large companies have the capital to invest in technology resources and are able to manage these processes internally, however, the majority of companies need to outsource IT consulting.
