Real SMB IT: The Growing Business

April 24, 2009

Despite the current recession, growth in our businesses is still key. And if you have reached the stage where you are growing from a small business into a mid-market or medium business, allow me to say congratulations!

As you hit this stage, be aware of one thing in regards to your IT infrastructure and services.

They will be similar, but very different!

You need to ensure that you are managing your IT for growth, you must ensure that your IT can scale on all levels, from infrastructure to people.

You must make sure that you know what is happening with your IT. In other words, if you have been abdicating  responsibility, now is the time to fix that!

You need to ensure that your strategy and internal processes are mature enough to carry you through this transition without failing at critical times.

Sure, there will be some learning, but ensuring that your business technology investments are scalable and aligned with your growth strategy are critical.
