How do you know where to put your money and your manpower?
But how do you or your team know what data to look at, and what is need-to-do, when ‘All That Tech Stuff’ evolves so quickly, and data continues to pile up? Or rather, how can you and your IT team feel confident about what to prioritize in next year’s budgets, if you don’t know what the data is telling you?
To budget and prioritize resources, you have to know more than just which tools you have: You need to know
• how well you use those tools
• if they are performing to the best of their capabilities, and
• if you need different ones, or upgrades to the ones you have.
In the conversations I have with people about how we at CTGlobal can help with data analysis, I hear their concerns about how to deal with all the information that is have available to the organizations.
The questions about how to extract trends arise, once I tell them that it is actually possible to pull data about just about all aspects of your IT infrastructure – compliance, security, hardware costs, software costs, performance, log-in and boot times, and that our software, Insight Analytics, can analyze and visualize it.
You name it, you can pull it, and put it to work.
So the answer to the question in the headline, fortunately, is:
“Yes, it does show you the trends – the trends you need, to keep your infrastructure several steps ahead and stay in control of IT costs.”
