As your business grows, so grows the data crucial to your daily operations. Using, organizing, tracking, and updating that data is part of the daily grind. Today's increasingly connected business can find a plethora of computerized tools oriented for these tasks. Communications such as phone/fax, printing, Local area, wide area and usually internet network systems of some variety are needed. With these come the configuration, setup and finally test/verification. Updates to hardware, firmware, software, not only for your work applications, but also the operating system(s) that support them. Scheduled backups, with storage on and off site for that "must not be lost" data. Clearly all/many of these necessary IT functions have nothing to do with the "daily grind", but will chew you up if you ignore it. Options are also clear: do IT internally, attempting to keeping "up to date enough" on internal tooling, or as would be the course of wisdom, get a Managed Service Provider.
