Tip of the Week: Build Up Your IT Like an Enterprise

The primary difference between an enterprise and a small or medium-sized business is simply how big it is. Due to this size, many of the tools used by enterprises are so powerful and dynamic that they can easily be used by businesses much smaller. Let’s take a look at what some of these technologies and processes are.

Cloud Solutions

Considering the scope of enterprise solutions, the cloud is a clear contender for one of the best solutions out there. The cloud allows your business to scale its services in accordance with its specific needs, accounting for your budget and allowing room for growth should the need arise down the line.

 

The cloud offers countless opportunities to fulfill the various needs of your business. Whether you need something as simple as data storage or you need a platform to deliver and host applications, the cloud makes it easy to budget and, perhaps most importantly, accessible.

Wireless Upgrades

Wireless connectivity is super important for modern businesses, and this is apparent through many organizations investing significant capital and time into providing high-quality connections throughout the workspace. With a solid strategy in place, businesses can understand where to place points of connection and how that connection is delivered. There are various types of connections to be implemented, all for specific purposes, so be sure to do your research and make adjustments accordingly.

Network Security

Security has become a top priority for businesses no matter how large or small they are. One somewhat recent innovation is that the modern enterprise now deploys security tools through the cloud, a process that helps them integrate these tools into their processes. The cloud solutions we mentioned earlier have proven to be quite scalable for small businesses, and security is no exception to this rule.

 

You might think that the tools used by large businesses and enterprises are out of reach for a small business, but this is just not true anymore. These enterprise-grade tools are quite accessible to SMBs, and you might be surprised by just how affordable they are when you work with the right provider!
