As we see another year draw to a close often we start to think about 2014 and what we want to achieve. New Year’s resolutions are being drawn up and spring cleans are being planned.
There is something exciting about a fresh start. With it comes a renewed focus and energy.
A good clear-out always feels positive – there is nothing like getting rid of all the junk that we no longer need nor use.
Have you ever considered a business life laundry, a good clean out of your cluttered servers and unused applications that may be bogging you down, clogging the system and costing you money unnecessarily?
You may already have some great applications and there is the old saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.
In the IT realm, there is an exception to this saying.
If you are happily running Windows server 2003 or Windows XP on your workstations (and most businesses are), then as of April 2014 they will be unsupported and you will need to change them if you want to keep things working smoothly. We have a blog on this, click here to read more.
You could combine any of these changes with an IT life laundry for your business – find out if you’re paying for various IT licenses you no longer need and find better and more cost effective ways to run your IT.
Everyone needs a hand on occasion to help sort through things, whether it be personal or business. The 404 team would be very happy to assist you with your IT life laundry.
