Looking to cut down on your IT spending? Join the club. Here are a few tips that could save you some cash right now:
Audit your WAN You know, all those T1s, DS3s and phone lines. Let an experienced network engineer conduct an end-to-end review and assess all your costs. Odds are pretty good that better technology, faster speeds and lower prices are out there waiting ... for someone who knows where to look.
Think about power Yes, your servers have to run all the time -- but your PCs don't. Properly adjusting the power settings on your desktop machines could significantly cut your power bill.
Upgrade your servers If your servers are more than four years old, odds are they're using as much as 200% more power than newer models. Add in the cost of support for aging machines and an upgrade could be a smart and cost-effective choice.
Use application service providers Say goodbye to expensive software licenses and say hello to reliable and cost-effective ASPs that provide all the functionality you need. Choosing the right ASPs is crucial, of course, but it's a choice that makes particular sense in companies with large staff turnover or seasonal business cycles.
Let an outsider take a look. As technology changes and your business grows, a technology spot-check makes good business sense. It's not uncommon for the cost of a reliable consulting firm to be made up many times over through the resulting annual cost savings. There's no reason to do things exactly the same way you've done them just because that's all you know.
