Are you familiar with the concept of dog years?
They say the first year of a puppy’s life is the equivalent of 15 human years. And your dog ages the equivalent of five to nine human years every calendar year.
Just as an older dog needs to be taken to the vets more regularly, so too must older IT systems get specialist attention and have more preventative work done.
Technology is improving at such a speed that older hardware and software can quickly fall behind. It’s not as dramatic as it used to be – when things would just stop working – but there are underlying risks of running an old setup that you must be aware of.
In fact, if your system hasn’t been significantly reviewed in the last three years or longer, then it’s highly likely that your staff ’s productivity is at risk – and so is your data. The older your setup, the greater the data security risks.
We’ve written a new guide explaining this, with five signs that your current IT setup is older than you think. I’ve written it in human, not geek!
