IT cost optimization is the process of ensuring that the state of your current IT infrastructure is as efficient and utilized as possible. This process may include updating legacy technology, switching software providers, or even taking advantage of additional business application features that an organization otherwise did not know existed. Once the IT infrastructure has been made to work and operate as streamlined as possible, it in turn optimizes IT cost, because large chunks of the IT budget will now be channeled towards upkeep and digital transformation rather than damage control.
Gartner estimates “70% of IT support for infrastructure services can be performed at a remote location” and “remote infrastructure management services can reduce labor costs by 10% to 50%, depending on the delivery location, resulting in a 3% to 30% overall net savings, excluding one-time transition charges.”
A good place for an organization to start using remote infrastructure managed services is to outsource Help Desk administration and server event monitoring and management. Typically in IT, inefficiencies grow as complexity grows and over time and an IT infrastructure can evolve into a very complex system. The software and hardware tools needed to manage that complexity are viewed as too expensive to purchase and support in any but the largest enterprises.
Not so for a managed service provider as that is our core business. Synoptek Managed Services has invested over $1 million in software, hardware and trained staff to monitor and manage IT infrastructure. Replacing legacy IT infrastructure can be a complicated process and could significantly impact the ability to service customers 24×7 if not approached correctly. This is a good first step in making your IT Department leaner and more responsive to internal business objectives.
