Are you overworking your IT manager?
Information Technology (IT) is an essential piece that makes up any business. Fulfilling a wide spectrum of IT-related responsibilities, the IT Manager contributes to a more flexible, productive and profitable business by strategically improving systems and the infrastructure. However, a demanding job description that’s often overburdened by daily deadlines, high-level tasks may be inevitably delayed. Your IT Manager may need an extra hand on projects like upgrading, maintaining the security of your IT system and IT strategy to propel the growth of your business.
Your IT Manager is a Pillar of Your Organisation
Technology is improving exponentially and new products hit the market at a rate that outstrips the time it takes for businesses to catch on. It is up to the IT Manager to know what the business and staff need while filtering out ones that don’t fit the criteria. As the link between your IT infrastructure and staff, you’ll expect your IT Manager to identify opportunities for improvements that align with the IT strategy and business priorities.
Your IT Manager is the business’ source for the latest IT trends as well as common security threats. Responding quickly and efficiently to security attacks is critical, however it’s also just as important to implement preventative measures to mitigate the risks. There are many types of attacks: ransomware, phishing, malware and DDoS. And depending on the scope, these prevention projects and tasks may take time – time that your IT Manager may not have given the number of day-to-day responsibilities to meet. However, it shouldn’t be overlooked that your data is your most valuable asset. And in an age of digital transformation, cybercrime is becoming the fastest-growing form of criminal activity that’s set to cost SMEs $5.2 trillion worldwide.
