5 Tips To Reduce IT Department Load 

If you are an IoT Development company with IT employees on staff, you’re likely not paying less than $50k per year per employee.

Naturally, an operation with a handful of professionals running internal operations is poised for continual forward scalability.

That said, it’s still absolutely integral that you maximize the investment you’ve made in your employee assets. One way to do that is to strategically lessen the load you put on your internal tech people.

This doesn’t mean reducing data your company produces or that your tech teams manage; it means working smarter, not harder.

5 Tips To Reduce IT Department Load

Following, we’ll explore a few ways to lessen the load on tech people while maximizing their investment and maintaining forward operations.

#1. MSPs And CIOs

Managed Service Providers can outsource IT management totally or incrementally. Sometimes you don’t want total outsourcing because you haven’t maximized internal employee investment.

Sometimes you are at an early enough stage of operation to do this from the outset. Your internal tech people need not worry, though. If you’ve a Chief Information Officer who’s afraid for his job, he needn’t be.

MSP solutions can manage updating software, IOT Software development services, troubleshooting, and security. They can eliminate all the little fires, freeing internal tech people to work on core operational prerogatives.

A vCIO, or virtual Chief Information Officer, can be used to manage even complex security needs.

Your on-site CIO can use this service through an MSP to turn baseline management into a turnkey operation and allow him to focus on what’s more important.

#2. FTP Protocols Reduce Operational Difficulty For Tech Teams

File Transfer Protocol, abbreviated FTP, is like an agreement for file transfer management between a client and a server on a network.

Clients and servers have separate data and control connections; here’s a blog with tips on helping your business find the right FTP clients. Doing so will reduce the data management load of IT teams.

#3. Cloud Computing Considerations

Cloud computing can cut costs extensively and reduce the load on IT teams. You can outsource on-site personnel through the cloud owing to Bring Your Device (BYOD) protocols.

With a cloud network, employees have access from wherever they’ve got a secure internet connection. Additionally, cloud computing allows easier outward scalability and security.

Cloud computing backups can automatically safeguard data when you change something on the network—if that’s something amenable to general operations.

Also, cloud computing has greater “horsepower” than internal network solutions. If you’re hosting your in-house server array, your tech people help you buy the right servers, allocate space for them, install them, and maintain them.

This is a process with a cycle attached to it. It would be best to have new servers every 3 to 5 years, even with the best management, owing to tech realities like Moore’s Law.

That’s quite a bit of work, and it will be more expensive for most businesses than a cloud transition. Additionally, it will require more employees.

You might outsource to vCIO, MSP, and cloud options to maximize existing IT clientele and make it, so your business doesn’t have to hire more people.

#4. Automated Patch Protocols

Whether using external MSP options or on a strictly internal IT team, you need to apply automation where appropriate.

In terms of security, antivirus patches can be key in helping your business avoid the newest viruses. In 2017, the WannaCry virus hit, and a vulnerability became widely known in March of that year.

Those in the know on patch management automatically had a patch to that vulnerability applied as soon as it was available.

This was well before hackers had a chance to engineer a worm. Those without this kind of security were impacted when the May worm came. Altogether, the WannaCry worm backhanded businesses in 150+ countries.

Automated security solutions are key, but they’re not the only ones your internal IT team can use to expedite operations.

Automated testing, logging, notification, and customer management solutions additionally exist. Find which options best match the needs of your business.

#5. Enabled Tech Departments Enhance Operations

Your internal tech people will likely be weighed down putting out digital fires at some point during regular operations.

Your goal should be to give them the tools necessary to succeed. MSPs, vCIOs, cloud computing, automated patch protocols, and FTP clients can all be quite helpful to internal teams.

Consult tech teams to see what would ideally enable them and apply such solutions.
