Can you name a business that isn’t technology-dependent in today’s digital age?
Considering that the majority of organisations now have websites, communication systems, automated processes and software running all across their operations, it’s hard to imagine business today without the power of technology!
As your own business strives to grow, you must also ensure that your technology consistently evolves to support this. To expand successfully, your technological capabilities must be set up correctly to accommodate the growing needs of your business and customers.
What are your business’ goals today? How about in the next 3, 5 and 10 years?
Is your technology on par with where your business is heading? Let’s find out!
Is your current technology keeping up with your business?
This is something management should always be thinking about if they’re serious about growth.
Let’s start by asking you a few questions:
- Do you notice that your technology is starting to fragment as you expand?
- Do you feel like you are not utilising your tech in the best way?
- Are you being limited to the technology you’ve been traditionally using?
- Do you not have the in-house capacity to build robust technology systems?
- Is it difficult for you to execute plans and align the right technology?
If you answered “yes” to most of these questions, then your business may be a little hamstrung. It’s a common challenge today, as when people think about growth, they often think: more people, more customers, more revenue.
But technology is the “glue” behind all of this.
- better website technology can ensure higher volumes of customers can purchase or book online
- improved Cloud storage can help your team work remotely
- comprehensive telephony systems can support inter-department collaboration
- access to software platforms can make your growing workforce far more efficient.
- more robust backup systems can protect you against rising cybersecurity attacks, and so on.
Upgrading and adapting your approach to technology will enable you to realise your goals – both in the short and long run. More importantly, it will help your business deliver impeccable service to customers and other stakeholders.
But you need to plan ahead for tomorrow.
How does a business prepare?
With today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, it’s necessary for a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) or Chief Information Officer (CIO) to plan ahead using a technology roadmap that accommodates your expanding business needs.
Unfortunately, not all organisations have the capacity, knowledge or team members to do this.
This is where Centrix can help with our Technology Roadmap service.
