Centralization of IT systems makes it easier for all businesses, even for a entrepreneur starting a journey to be productive and have less IT failures.
Why? The answer is simple, as you grow your business you would need to make sure everything is working just the way it should including IT systems or else will need look for a IT person when something goes wrong. Reacting to such a situation, you will need extra number of hours out of your day to day routine. Fixing your self means doing just one more task.
The second reason is that even a full time person can not cover what centralization and basic systems can do. Never let your IT systems fail you. With a simple view of your systems on platforms for in-house devices, cloud IT systems or even security. More the centralization less chances of failure and techs to recover without any business impact. If your internal IT does not know when something goes wrong, how would they fix it before you tell them. Being able to monitor helps tech team be more proactive to fix failures and keep you productive.

Few systems you can centralize.
Business cloud: You can have all your IT systems running on cloud, while using computers in office, laptop on the move and smartphone or even iPad as per your convenience. Now simple file sharing, team management, device control and even having your own server from cloud is much simpler and easier to configure. If compared to in-house systems, ROI of 3 years makes sense while considering other business factors.
In-house systems: You will always need computer in-house if not servers, to access information over desktop, laptops or smartphones. While depending how your business functions. Access to information and network defined for your team to be able to work efficiently and in collaboration.
You can add-on any service either on cloud or in-house as per your choice for business IT needs for better collaboration, communication and management of IT assets with team access.
The main difference having systems in-house and cloud is that you need to have your own monitoring and maintenance. Because if you miss those your IT systems will work more sluggish and not be reliable. Monitoring of your systems just makes them run faster, keep you secure and productive.
We have automated basic tasks such as monitoring and maintenance of all devices, however with experience in IT we know systems fail and having an proactive approach helps rather than calling your IT for issues. Most automation can cover basics and keep everything in check, you will need to have a manual maintenance in place to make sure automation is working, as well as run manual upgrades and updates which change system functioning.
Centralization can help keep a good look at your IT functions and have some one fix what breaks proactively. Integration of IT makes continuity much simpler and everyone productive.
