IT Support & Data Backup Made Easy on Video by 365iT Services
March 12, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsWhile advancements in digital technology allow businesses to leverage their processes, services and customer engagement better than ever before, it also gives rise to a range of sophisticated IT needs that can be difficult to fully grasp.
To address the confusion about which IT strategies are best for the individual needs of each company, 365iT Services is creating a growing list of video guides explaining in easy terms what various IT infrastructure, support and data backup options entail.
First launched on YouTube in December 2011, the 365iTV dedicated video channel now offers six guides describing the potential business benefits of crucial IT technologies - in a way that assumes people are intelligent but not necessarily tech savvy. Users can also find the videos on the 365iT Services website.
Thus far, the tutorials cover key IT services that have been proven to help company's of all sizes maximise their potential and minimise their operating costs. They are listed under the titles Virtualisation, Backup, Collaboration, Mobility, Storage and Telepresence.
Effectively, virtualisation is an IT Infrastructure service which streamlines an organisation's computing facilities – desktops, servers, networks and storage – into a single, efficient operation.
Backup relates to offsite data replication and recovery solutions so that a business can feel confident in knowing that their vital information is never lost.
The term collaboration in IT describes the synchronisation of all communication methods - phone, email, text, conferencing and video – so that company employees can work better together and make the most of their time. Mobility falls under this banner and is becoming an increasingly vital tool so that workers can keep in contact and access important company information when on the move.
The 365iTV video guide on telepresence takes communication options further by discussing how visual participation amongst employees within a business enables innovation and productivity resulting from enhanced team performance.
When it comes to storage of company information, it is getting increasingly difficult to ensure all digital company activity from a multitude of sites or mobile devices is recorded, and gaps in this can greatly reduce business responsiveness. Since storage costs are growing faster than server costs these days, 365iT services advises that choosing effective yet affordable storage area network solutions are essential.
365iT director Peter Howells commented on their objectives in launching the video guides: "We launched the 365iTV video channel because we want to help businesses readily understand how they can take advantage of IT technologies to help grow and enhance their operations. We also want to show companies that an impressively robust IT solution need not be as complicated as it may seem, nor does it need to cost an arm and a leg – especially SMEs who might not have the budget, particularly in these economic times, to employ a full-time IT department, it's important to know that effective, reliable IT solutions are within reach."
