Your company's IT resources are a constant bottleneck to your success and your IT just not working for you? This is a standard scenario for most of the SMBs. The IT of an organization needs "tune-ups". Your company’s IT infrastructure needs to be checked and evaluated periodically. During our Strategic Technology Audit, a team of certified engineers will assess and benchmark your current IT infrastructure against best practices and develop a customized technology solution that fits your business needs perfectly. The specific technology audit will show you exactly where standards are met and exceeded, where your liabilities and potential threats are and which are most critical.
Your extensive Strategic Technology Audit report will give you a clear picture of where you are today along with recommendations for next steps and long-term solutions to optimize your IT for increased efficiency and lower costs.
Who needs a Technology Audit?For companies and organizations that believe and feel that their IT resources have become costly or unstable and if they have problems with downtime or if the overall cost of doing business is increasing. If this is he case, then contact IBSCY Ltd at firstname.lastname@example.org and these problems will be solved after completing the technology audit.
But beyond the major warning signs that serious IT problems are imminent, EVERY business that is serious about the long-term health and security of their technology should have a Technology Audit.

A full list is provided with the specifications of all devices such as processor, RAM, hard disk, operating system, MS office, etc. Also, the procedures that all employees are following during their day-to-day operations using these devices. The outcome of these procedures will be work flows, internal/external processes, data flow, etc.
All the network devices are inspected and a full diagram is provided with their location, IP address, etc. Using this diagram, you will be able to see your current network with possible flaws.
