IT Nirvana Phase 2: “The Thin Line Between Chaos & Nirvana”

Apr 8, 2022

Patrick Clary, President & Chief Operating Officer at DYOPATH 

You can have skilled, loyal employees and great products, but without a proper vision – and IT roadmap to get you there – end up in chaos instead. In my last blog, I discussed the need in many organizations to take a closer look at their IT strategy to achieve a proper alignment with their goals. The second phase to achieving a robust, forward-looking IT comes after you’ve assessed the different elements of your system and are ready to plan a targeted approach for a better road ahead.  

In my years helping all types of clients get out of the chaos rut, Managed Services have been the most dependable way of allowing them to fix their system and achieve their goals. The good news is that the connection between chaos and order can be solved more readily than most business leaders realize.  

Work with an MSP to Assess, Remediate, and Improve Your IT 

When it comes to solutions, one size doesn’t fit all. A partner can ensure the proper alignment between tools and the business they serve. So how do you align the right technology and services to get you there? The most crucial components that solutions must address are: 

  • Technology 
  • Performance 
  • Security 
  • Policy  
  • Procedures 

Even sophisticated enterprises today may be operating on outdated systems, mixing a combination of new and old technologies. Your provider will let you know which tools can address your most important needs and provider access to them, both in the cloud and within your own infrastructure. Doing so may require a risk mitigation plan that takes a closer look at your specific assets and vulnerabilities.  

Compliance Will Take You from Risk Management to Resiliency  

Mahatma Gandhi once described nirvana as a kind of “living peace.” In the IT world, this might take the form of protected assets and happy, productive end users. Just make sure compliance is a stop on your roadmap, as well. 

More and more, a lack of compliance must be addressed along with other gaps and potential risks. Compliance is now a critical part of security programs for organizations, and there can be penalties for ignoring demands, not to mention risking a costly security breach. Stakeholders expect enterprises to be able to show how they’re addressing a whole range of potential vulnerabilities. Regardless of industry, location or even size, an MSP can show them how to be compliant with the latest regulations.
