The Myth of the One-Time Purchase
More than ever, technology is essential for business. Despite its importance, however, few businesses experience all the benefits it has to offer. Instead, they treat it as a necessary evil, investing just enough to avoid slipping behind their competitors. When they do purchase a new piece of hardware or software, many companies simply plug it in and walk away, assuming that their investment will somehow work out for the best with no further maintenance. With today’s systems reaching greater heights of sophistication and complexity every year, this is an increasingly bad practice. When it comes to technology, there’s really no such thing as a one-time purchase. On the contrary, a technology purchase is only the beginning of a long relationship. It’s like hiring a new employee; if you invest in that employee’s well-being, you will nurture a key asset which will benefit your organization for years to come. Technology has ongoing needs, too. Patches, updates, maintenance and compatibility issues are only the beginning. Once you factor in security threats like viruses and social engineering attacks, you begin to wonder if all this technology is really worth it.
