7 Elements of an IT Strategy for Startup Companies

7 Reasons your Startup needs IT Consulting, and more …

In your early stage organization, you will have a long list of critical tasks and important decisions.  Why make IT harder than it has to be?  IT outsourcing is essential at the initial stages of your company for the following reasons:


  1. Human Capital.  You need vision and staff concentrating on your products and delivery, not IT infrastructure.
  2. Technical Focus.  You will need talented IT engineers with a broad range of IT skills and experience.  By outsourcing IT, you get the depth and breadth of IT experience you need but can’t yet afford.
  3. Create a foundation for growth.  An agile IT environment permits you to expand IT infrastructure quickly and as you capture business opportunities.
  4. Avoid Wasted Expenses.  As your storage and end-user demands grow, it makes sense to “turn-up” capacity rather than use your valuable capital to purchase it. For everything IT just pay for what you use rather than invest in software and hardware, you will need to maintain, upgrade and replace.
  5. Time.  Don’t waste your time doing patching, upgrades, and maintenance on your IT infrastructure.  Get experts to do network connectivity, security, backup, disaster recovery, database administration, manage software applications, e-commerce, and more.
  6. Lower Overall IT Spending.  Manage business cycles effectively by adjusting your IT infrastructure accordingly.  Outsourcing IT will reduce your capital costs and operating budgets.
  7. Creating Value.  Increase the valuation of your business for future investors by focusing resources on products, innovation, and marketing, not IT infrastructure.

Review this list to determine if IT as a Service (ITaaS) is a good fit for your Startup Organization:CEO-CFO-COO

  1. Growth of your data is increasing, and your IT infrastructure cannot keep up
  2. Legacy systems exist and are quickly becoming obsolete and harder to support
  3. The number of sites, devices, systems and users is increasing
  4. As everything is growing so is your ability to manage risk, security, and compliance
  5. Finance wants to move from a capital to an operating expense model
