How a business IT audit can provide perspective and save you money

Jul. 23, 2020 IT Support for Business

A comprehensive IT audit helps you gain valuable insight into your business as a whole

Your IT systems are made up of a lot of moving parts. Do you know how well they’re all working together?

An inefficient IT system can, at best, hinder your everyday operations. At worst, it can pose serious security risks that may threaten the integrity of your entire business.

This is where a business IT audit proves to be invaluable. An audit can cover a wide range of IT infrastructure, including:

  • Servers and networks
  • Operating systems
  • Security and Compliance
  • Software applications
  • Databases
  • Telecom infrastructure
  • Wireless infrastructure
  • Helpdesk
  • Project planning and execution.

Join us as we explore the ways a business IT audit can help you.

A business IT audit builds a comprehensive picture

Your company’s technology exists to support your functions, strategies, and operations. 

An IT audit can help you understand whether your systems successfully support your business objectives by looking at all of the different parts of your IT infrastructure and how they work together to identify security risks, costs, and inefficiencies.

As an added bonus, the process of conducting the audit will facilitate more open communication between IT teams and management teams, to build trust and increase accountability.

A business IT audit gives you perspective on what works—and what doesn’t work

An IT audit can provide the assurance of industry-specific regulatory compliance, and if necessary highlight the steps you need to take to remediate compliance issues.

It can also improve the integrity of your infrastructure by identifying inefficiencies in processes, any tools that are not being fully utilized, and so on.

A business IT audit can save you money

First and foremost, an IT audit will help you reduce the risk of data breaches—which, if left unchecked, could lead to significant financial damages and potential loss of clients.

You may also find that the audit helps you identify ways to save money by streamlining operations, removing subscriptions for tools you’re not using, and more. If you hire an experienced IT partner to conduct your audit, they may also be able to negotiate discounts with technology providers on your behalf.
