Neglecting Your Organization's IT System Can Be Its Downfall

(Edmonton, AB) - What's your organization's most valuable asset in today's global environment? You might think it's cash reserves, reputation or hard assets. But in reality, information is the most valuable commodity. Despite this, the majority of organizations spend very little time assessing their information technology (IT) systems, and only a small percentage allocate a specific budget to IT. If success is your goal, the time has come for this to change.

"Most organizations are too busy putting out fires to think about fireproofing their IT systems," states David Papp, international IT consultant and author of "IT Survival Guide: Conquering Information Technology in Your Organization." "They jump from one emergency to the next. In fact, most business executives see information technology as a financial burden rather than a way to achieve their organization's goals."

With over twenty years' experience as an expert analyst in the IT field, David Papp sees successful organizations of tomorrow changing the way they approach information technology. From server technology to archiving procedures to attracting the right personnel, smart corporations will be proactive in ensuring IT operations are on the cutting edge. If not, they will be left behind.

"A great deal of the problem rests on the shoulders of both executives and IT managers," Papp notes. "Managers often lack the soft skills to communicate properly the IT needs of a company while executives fail to take an active interest in this aspect of their organization. As a result, resources are not allocated and the company risks loss of precious data and operational efficiency."

David Papp serves as an expert IT consultant to many prestigious international firms and is a regular keynote speaker on information technology topics. With a computer engineering background, he understands both the theoretical and practical aspects of IT and how it relates to today's businesses. In his book, he explains in easy-to-understand language the importance of investing in the right technologies, tools and people when it comes to information management. Business owners and IT managers alike can benefit from his knowledge and experience. Topics covered include:

  • Disaster recovery and business continuity during IT catastrophes
  • The benefits of an IT assessment or audit for an organization
  • High-priority fixes that result in immediate results
  • Long-term solutions in server technologies and operational IT tools
  • How to improve communications between the C-suite and IT department
  • The importance of IT maintenance and prevention

"IT system investments are not simply expenses on an accounting sheet," Papp explains. "Your IT system is a means by which an organization can meet its goals. By aligning IT and business strategies, the benefits are exponential. And the savings in cost and efficiency alone can significantly change your bottom line."

David Papp, in addition to owning the IT firm Microtek Corporation, holds numerous industry certifications including Microsoft, Cisco, VMware, auditing, security and more. He is also registered with the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers and enjoys sharing his expertise with audiences throughout the US and Canada.
