When it comes to your business’ technology, a lot can go wrong if you don’t take the time to… well, take care of it. The best way to ensure that your technology remains in proper working order is to keep up with basic maintenance. We realize that this can be a challenge, though, especially for small businesses with limited budgets.
Let’s examine why you shouldn’t wait until your technology breaks down before taking care of it.
The Break-Fix Model
In the past, businesses might have waited just a tad too long to get the assistance they needed with technology. They often adhered to what is called the “break-fix model” in which they would wait until technology broke down before addressing issues. This kind of approach is simply not sustainable for any organization that wants to take its operations seriously, especially considering the immense costs associated with downtime and acquisition of new technology, if it is necessary to do so.
No, the break-fix model is not sustainable long-term, and there is no excuse to not take care of your technology the way it should be treated: like an investment. You change the oil in your car so it can get you from point A to point B without the engine breaking down. You change the brakes before you go hurtling off the cliff and into a chasm below. You change the windshield wipers so you won’t be stuck in the middle of a storm without the ability to see. This is all preventative maintenance and a protection of your investment, and you should treat your technology no differently.
