Technology systems don’t last forever. No matter how good a computer or a server is, it will need to be fixed or replaced at some point down the road. In fact, it is typical that the IT cycle is about 3 years if that. Unfortunately that’s lead to some business owners treating their information technology like disposable razors: whoops, this one’s dull – better go buy a new one. If you treat your IT like that, you’ll never get back the investment you put into it.
The best way to make the most of your IT investment is to care for it, like you would a car. If you give your computer systems and IT networks a little TLC and proactive maintenance from a team of skilled IT support experts, you can get a good and productive lifespan out of your systems without sudden failures that can set you back.
In our years of providing information technology support and solutions here in New England, we have become pretty good at figuring out when a computer is getting ready to bite the big one. Computers will give out warning signs letting you and us know when something is going wrong, so you need to know what to look out for and ultimately what to listen for.
Here are five warning signs your computer will more than happily share with you:
Computers fail. It’s not IF they fail; it is WHEN they fail. Your business must have a trained team of IT professionals who can ensure that your IT systems remain fine-tuned and in perfect working order, so you’ll be prepared for a smooth and easy transition to new systems when the time is right.
Here is our last tip: Make sure you have a full backup & business continuity plan for your system at all times. Your computer can be replaced, but your data cannot. Make sure you have a fully tested backup solution that protects your hard work and also allows for a quick and comprehensive recovery of files in order to remain productive.
