5 Ways to Reduce or Keep IT Infrastructure Costs Under Control

Many methods of IT Maintenance have emerged in the past decade. According to CGX, in 2021 alone, 40% of Companies in the US shelled out 21-40% of their Budget on Maintenance Equipment. About 90% of facilities outsourced 23% of their Maintenance Operations. About 44% of Plants spend approximately 40 hours a week on Maintenance. However, the most eye-opening statistic about the current IT Infrastructure scenario is that an overwhelming 93% of Businesses consider their Maintenance process inefficient.

This Data shows that the challenges faced by IT Infrastructure Maintenance are significant. With little insights regarding IT Maintenance, Enterprises spend a considerable amount only to find out that the cost of the Maintenance far outweighs the Value that the Assets bring in. On the other hand, some Companies shy away from making significant Investments to discover that their Competitors are doing a much better job and leaving them behind. Understanding the thin line between wasteful and meaningful IT Infrastructure Management is crucial.

Ways to Control IT Infrastructure Costs

The Technology Domain in recent years has gone through astonishing developments to deliver High-operational Efficiencies, which lead to Cost Reduction and improved overall Customer Satisfaction Rates. Along with Analytical Tools and Techniques and the Power of the Internet, Data Center Management has taken a turn for the better. Here are five steps to efficiently use IT Infrastructure Budget.

1. Expedite Cloud Migration

The Pandemic saw more and more Companies moving towards Digital alternatives. Assets, Resources, Databases and Applications are being shifted to either partially or entirely Cloud Storage. For many Enterprises, it makes sense to switch at least partly to the Cloud as Hardware and Software Management may seem like an unnecessary expenditure.

Cloud Migration enables migrating Assets from one Cloud to another. This process requires analysis of current IT Infrastructure and proper execution to ensure that Cloud Migration is in sync with your business requirements. With Cloud Migration, you get

- Cost Reduction in IT Maintenance

- Greater Scope for managing Customer Relations efficiently

- Higher Flexibility

- Efficient Scalability Options

2. Minimize Cloud Storage Cost

The current Pandemic has normalized Remote Working via Secure Cloud Storage. Accessing Multiple Servers containing vital information can be achieved with greater efficiency. Cloud Storage also made communications among Team members streamlined. An Enterprise needs to understand how Cloud spending works by consulting a global Third-party Maintenance Company like Thomastech. The following process can achieve this :

  • Reviewing your current and projected needs
  • Assessing your current spending on cloud resources, storage, and other services
  • Recommending specific adjustments to reduce or avoid unnecessary costs
  • Creating a plan that recognizes cost benefits and longer-term commitments only for essential applications
  • Implementing a Dashboard Monitoring System that allows stakeholders to identify inefficiencies

3. Pay Only for What You Need... Period.

For smaller or middle-sized operations, utilizing a third-party IT maintenance company is the most economical choice. Rather than employing a bullpen full of full-time specialists, reduce your costs by using technical support only when needed for repairs, upgrades, implementation, user training, security enhancements, and ongoing monitoring.

4. Make Your IT Assets, Infrastructure and Equipment Last Longer

Manufacturers' representatives have one goal: to sell you more equipment. Their maintenance contracts and warranties only extend for a few years, after which they will advise that you start replacing. A competent third-party maintenance company will strive to keep your equipment up-to-date longer, perform regular services, and install upgrades only as needed.

5. Partner With a Professional Third-Party IT Maintenance Company That Will Save You Time and Money

Focus on your real organizational mission. Operating computer systems effectively is a support function and not your company's primary purpose. Wasting capital on maintaining an extensive in-house IT staff and equipment can be counterproductive.

A third-party IT maintenance company like thomastech will keep your business focused on issues that matter while holding the cost of storing and managing essential data at the lowest possible level.
