At ITP we focus on delivering our services in a manner that rises above our competition. Which got me thinking…the best IT firms do certain things well. Among the most common are:
- They have skilled, experienced engineers
- They explain things clearly to you
- They are efficient and reliable
- They help you drive efficiency through your technology
- They are an asset to your business
I’ve seen many IT firms to some of these things well, but few do all of them well. What are the most important things your IT firm does for you?
There’s no doubt that virtualization is becoming more and more prevalent for small businesses of all sizes. There are lots of reasons for this including:
- Reduced downtime
- Increased performance
- Strong disaster recovery
- Excellent business flexibility
But I find it curious that many companies I meet with are initially confused by the concept. So…here’s my attempt to simplify virtualization.
At its most basic level, virtualization for small businesses generally involves running multiple server operating systems on one physical server. That’s it. Oh sure, more than one physical server can be deployed to create better redundancy, less downtime, etc. But just knowing that simple concept – multiple server systems running on a single piece of hardware (server) – puts you way ahead of many small businesses.

The Rise in Mobile Devices
The rise of mobile devices has been exponential over the past 5 years. There are many reasons for this, but the most prevalent is that they allow people to communicate faster and more effectively than ever before. The ability to have access to e-mail, contacts, calendar, and other data has made them an extremely valuable tool for today’s legal professional. Hence the rise of the mobile device as today’s “always-on” business tool. Yet, there are downsides to all technologies and mobile devices are not without their share. Beginning with the multitude of devices available today to the changing landscape services, features, and functions available on each device, finding a the right device can be a challenge. Additionally, matching a device to your personal needs, technical requirements of your network, and your practice management tool can be next to impossible without assistance from an IT professional. Often finding the right device is a matter of breaking down the different features it provides.
