Businesses of all sizes have to manage an increasing diversity of remote users and devices. The task ranges from simply keeping systems running to ensuring security, compliance and the achievement of environmental goals. Under this sort of pressure, IT managers and managed service providers, to which the task is often outsourced, must have flexible access to powerful tools and an ability to share the data those tools rely on.

Even when facing challenging economic times, businesses still need to communicate and rely on technology to connect with customers, partners, suppliers and their own employees. Cutting back on communications spending will have a negative effect in a long downturn.  It will leave any business that does so with fewer options when conditions improve and at a disadvantage compared to competitors that continue to invest.  However, there are 10 steps that can be taken to grow the value and use of communications, while controlling costs.

The internet has grown rapidly from a random collection of mainly academic networks and military control and routing protocols into a global, integrated and sophisticated commercial utility. No longer simply an 'Information Superhighway', it has extended to embrace voice telephony, video and mobile communications as part of a converged network. Connection options and services have expanded, with opportunities for internet service providers (ISPs) to add value beyond simply forwarding bit and bytes.

Outsourcing is a strategy increasingly being used by organizations to reduce costs and increase value. Outsourcing, however, has its risks. As organizations look to push out more of their custom software application development needs to outsourcing partners, careful planning is required in terms of building stringent software security requirements into contracts and creating a process and metrics to ensure that those requirements are met. This report examines outsourcing practices from 200 of the largest organizations in the UK and the US and provides pointers as to how the most experienced outsourcers are putting in place effective processes to drive the risk out of outsourcing.

Unsurprisingly, research shows that the majority of organizations see their future predicated on how well they can innovate. However, just throwing IT technology at issues in the hope that innovation will happen is not viable. Ideas are ephemeral and are easily crushed within the wrong environment. Creating a suitable culture, allied with a well implemented ideas management approach combined with strong leadership, is required.

The need to share information has never been greater as cross-organizational business processes become deeper and more complex. The movement of digital information, both within a business and across its increasingly porous boundaries to external individuals and organizations, carries more and more risk as regulations are tightened around data protection and personal privacy.

The internet offers any business the opportunity to present a commercial image independent of the organization's size and location. Small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) across the UK have exploited the internet as it has evolved from an interesting medium for the technology-aware to an essential commercial platform. With this increasing importance, and the internet’s ability to extend the reach of a business, it is valuable to realize precisely what different internet service providers (ISPs) offer before buying. This includes evaluating service level and support capabilities and understanding how these vary throughout the UK.

Given today’s economic climate, businesses are, more than ever, looking to create additional value through the reduction of risk and by saving costs. For many, the economic downturn is seen as the best time to optimise the infrastructure that they already have in place, to look at ways to trim unnecessary expenditure and to use existing resources more effectively. As organisations are increasingly reliant on data networks that encompass an ever-growing range and number of internet protocol (IP) enabled devices and applications, they need to more effectively administer and manage these assets—they can no longer take the management of their IP networks for granted.

Network Centric Operations (NCO) recognises the demand for pervasive decision-making in the modern battlespace. NCO provides the ability to leverage information networks to generate a more dynamic and agile decision-making space. An important dimension of this approach is the technological flexibility to quickly move the decision-making authority hierarchically or geographically as the situation demands. A fundamental enabler to this approach is the concept of a services orientated architecture (SOA). The use of industry-standard IT architectures provides the means of ensuring that systems can be provisioned rapidly, can be shared as appropriate, and can give the flexibility and response times required within such challenging environments.

Networked printers and multifunction peripherals often require a high level of support and manual intervention. Secure remote monitoring platforms reduce device downtime through automating service alerts, providing proactive toner replenishment and automatic meter reading. End users benefit through improved device uptime, and manufacturers and their service partners can build proactive service relationships which can drive greater customer loyalty.

For many years, server-based computing has been seen as a means of, at best, providing those within highly task-based environments with a controlled desktop environment. However, changes in software, hardware, security and management systems are leading towards server-based computing being suitable for a far larger proportion of an organization's user base.

With data breaches widespread, no organisation can afford to be complacent, but most data losses are avoidable. Many of the breaches making headline news are caused by the loss or theft of laptops and other portable devices. To protect themselves from financial and reputational damage, encryption technologies can reduce risks by ensuring the information on such devices is secure when users are on the move. They can also add value by allowing the secure sharing of information among authorised users and by enabling more secure remote working.

Across the mid-market, inefficiencies are compounded by the lack of visibility into pertinent data, of processes being adequately and flexibly automated, and for the performance of the business to be monitored on a constant basis. Without such capabilities, businesses will find it difficult to survive the current financial conditions – yet creating an environment where information can be easily aggregated and viewed has never been easier. Also, business performance can be easily monitored with small proactive, and even reactive, actions ensuring effective responses to market forces and enabling organisations to compete with local and more global business threats.

Managed print services (MPS) offer organisations the opportunity to control costs, reduce the complexity of managing a heterogeneous infrastructure and improve business processes. With many organisations striving to do more with less, MPS can cut both capital and operational expenses. Now is the time to tackle the huge cost and productivity drain represented by an unmanaged print environment. MPS passes control of this complex infrastructure to the experts leaving an organisation to focus on its core business competencies.
