The Value of IT Upgrade Services

In today’s world, your business relies on far more than a phone system, some network cables, and a ten key. Your business operations depend on an integrated web of complex IT infrastructure and tools.

Things have changed dramatically in the last two decades. The internet has grown from a glorified telegram into a complex and ever-evolving tool that has the power to connect people and services from every corner of the planet. Business models have been completely reinvented for the digital age, and new tools have come to the forefront to serve as compasses in an industry that is continuously evolving. This makes reliable and up to date IT systems critical.

If your business’s IT system is out of date, your business is out of date. It’s time to upgrade your IT system. When it comes to IT, you can’t afford to fall behind.

Why It’s Important to Upgrade Your IT Setup

We’ve seen more technological evolution in the last 18 months than we have in the last 18 years combined.

That’s saying something.

More than ever, we are dependent on connectivity and operations through technology, making a great IT system a make-or-break element for business success.

The consequences for falling behind on upgrading an IT system can be catastrophic. With a single successful cyberattack, someone who’s never once set foot in your office can hold your entire business for ransom. An outdated IT system can result in software compatibility issues that make it impossible to access key processes. Unpatchable vulnerabilities can hang your sensitive data out on a line for anyone to see, and the constant threat of a devastating system crash will always loom on the horizon.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

An IT system upgrade is the simplest and most effective prevention method for these all-too-common scenarios. In most cases, upgrading your IT system prevents these issues entirely and equips your company to act swiftly in the unlikely event that something does happen. With an up-to-date IT system, security breaches can be detected quickly, patches arrive more frequently, and data backups are more reliable. An IT upgrade is, simply put, one of the most strategic investments your company will ever make.

Recent history presents ample case studies. When COVID-19 imposed sudden lockdowns, many companies ground to a halt for weeks as they scrambled to navigate the complexities of managing remote and hybrid workforces while maintaining productivity and profitability.

With that, they lost time, revenues, and trust from their clients.

In contrast, businesses with recent IT system upgrades, like Seattle real estate company Blanton Turner, were equipped with a well-established infrastructure that allowed them to pivot in a single day. Their up-to-date IT infrastructure gave them remote access solutions, cloud-based file sharing, top-of-the-line data security, and approved mobile workstations, which allowed them to spend minimal time on IT transitions and more time serving clients.

Types of IT Upgrades Dynamic Computing Offers

As Seattle’s premier managed IT services provider, Dynamic Computing offers strategic guidance and expert execution of IT system upgrades.

Our experienced team maps a process that addresses your distinct business needs and sets you up for long-term success, giving you the tools to pivot, evolve, and scale for the future.

Here’s how Dynamic Computing tackles your IT upgrade:

  • IT transformations. Much like a home remodeling project, we work with you to analyze your current IT systems, discuss your objectives, and identify specific problem areas. We then develop a detailed roadmap for the new infrastructure, setting you up for success as we help you implement the upgraded IT system. Finally, we will personally arrive on site to replace your aging and outdated IT systems with state-of-the-art technologies tailored to give your company a highly secure cloud-based IT system that targets your needs.
  • Cloud migrations. Cloud computing is here to stay. If your business isn’t in the cloud, it’s time to do something about it. Our team of experts will help you migrate your current server network to the cloud, thereby increasing your IT system’s accessibility and security and making sure your business is able to compete in the modern world.
  • Cyber security upgrades. Your IT system is only as good as its ability to withstand attacks. Our industry-leading processes can identify over 150 potential problem areas in every system, allowing us to determine exactly where you’re most vulnerable. An IT security upgrade applies that information strategically, tackling trouble spots and reinforcing defenses to ensure that your sensitive data is secure from prying eyes.
  • Remote infrastructure. Remote and hybrid workforces have become the new normal, and that trend will only continue to grow. An IT upgrade optimizes remote connectivity, collaboration capabilities, and security protocols, so your teams can work without interruption. We work with your strategic goals in mind to create a scalable network system capable of handling more employees with increased reliability, more efficient communication, and faster development overall.

When To Upgrade Your Tech

Your IT upgrade can’t wait. Here are three factors that impact your need for an IT system upgrade:

  • Routine replacement. You should proactively upgrade your IT system every 3 to 5 years to maintain the highest levels of efficiency. Any longer than that risks serious vulnerabilities and system failures that can lead to far more costly “rip and replace” upgrades down the line. Your IT system is a workhorse that keeps your business moving forward. Routine replacement ensures you’re keeping it healthy and up to the task.
  • Software end of support. Software “end of life” refers to the point at which a software ceases to be updated and maintained by the manufacturer. This generally occurs 5 to 10 years after its release. (Hint, if anyone on your team is still using Internet Explorer, you’re well past the end of life point.) Any issues that crop up at that point will be unsolvable by the manufacturer, which puts your entire platform at risk.
  • Major business changes. Growth and evolution are part of business and worthy of celebration. But with major business changes comes the need to reevaluate your IT solutions. If you acquire another company, establish a new location, begin growing exponentially, or transition to a remote platform due to a global pandemic, it’s time to take a fresh look at your IT systems and critically analyze their current effectiveness.

Carefully consider your company’s positioning and make sure you have a plan to stay on top of IT needs.

Implications of Not Upgrading

The repercussions of an out-of-date IT system can’t be trivialized. At best, your systems will be inefficient. Your business will take longer to do the same amount of work, leading to less progress and development toward your objectives.

At worst, your system will be plagued by crashes, extended downtime, and crippling security breaches that could dismantle your company overnight. If you want to maintain your company’s reputation in a competitive market, your IT systems must be a key factor in your strategy.
