Envision your Organisation’s Technology Goals

This vision will be included in your Technology Plan and will provide guidance act as your procedure when moving forward with Technology.

Evaluate your Current Technology

MayTek IT Solutions will develop a complete understanding of the technology requirements to meet your organisation’s technology goals through completion of your technology audit, including all hardware and software currently in use throughout your organisation.

Assess Internal Practices

We will help you assess your organisation’s status in the areas of security, disasters, threats and technology training.

Establish your Technology Plan

We will utilise the information gathered during the assessment and envisioning process to design a technology plan that will guide your organisation through its current operating challenges to the achievement of your technology goals. Your technology plan will address the following areas:

Identify (Immediate) Critical Needs

Your critical technology needs will be addressed by priority. Critical needs are ranked as situations that severely hinder or prevent the execution of activities key to your organisation.

Review Hardware (Servers and Mission-Critical)

By ensuring that all servers and other mission-critical devices are hardware fault-tolerant, we can considerably minimise downtime and remediation costs when a failure occurs. For example, when accurately implemented, server hard disk fault-tolerance can allow the continuity of normal server operation should a hard disk fail.

Review Critical Data Strategy (Backup, Anti-Virus/Anti-Spam, Anti-Spyware, Critical Updates, Power Conditioning)

Several elements can corrupt your critical data. Spyware, viruses and other unforeseen causes such as unstable conditions have all been shown to corrupt systems and data. MayTek IT Solutions will review your current approach and make recommendations to confirm the integrity of your data, as well as the ability to promptly restore and access data in the event of disaster or corruption.

Recommend Cost-Reducing Strategies and Efficiency Improvements

As MayTek IT Solutions work to develop your technology plan, we will be able to recommend cost-saving strategies and, if required, suggest changes to your current infrastructure that will also result in improved efficiency, if required.

Prepare End-Of-Life Equipment Upgrade/Replacement Plan

In MayTek IT Solutions’ experience, replacing aging equipment, can actually help reduce your performance costs. Depending on the function of the equipment, it may be more economical to replace aging devices than to continue to upgrade or maintain them. By taking into consideration actual physical labour costs, along with the cost of replacement parts and limited warranty on the hardware, an informed decision can be made.

Implement a Regular Maintenance Schedule

Regular maintenance schedules should be a part of any organisation’s technology plan. Just like a car, if you want a longer life span, then it requires regular servicing. At a minimum, scheduled maintenance; when performed correctly it will maintain critical updates and service pack upgrades on all equipment, and ensure that data defect tolerance and hardware procedures are being properly maintained. A strategic maintenance program will also include remote network monitoring, providing economical 24x7x365 real-time evaluation of all of your critical devices and services.
