Eliminate your IT villains with Dynamic Business Technologies and Microsoft 365
Like most businesses, managing your IT is a hassle that you don’t have time for. You want to focus on what you do best, not fixing servers that have gone down and planning when there’s a gap in your team’s schedule to plan a software update.
Modernising systems to stay efficient is the logical step to growth for most businesses in 2019.
The great news is that modern cloud platforms make it easier than ever to give your team access to all the tools they need, whenever and wherever they need them. But this doesn’t come without any risk or legal obligations.
You’re probably already familiar with Office 365, the cloud services platform that gives your business all the Microsoft tools you’ve used for years like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneDrive either online or on-premises via a subscription plan. The cloud-based subscription model means that your software is always the latest version and thanks to cloud-based storage, your team can access the documents they need from any authorised device.
But you might not know about Microsoft 365. It’s an all-in-one bundle that includes the Office 365 suite, Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise Mobility+Security for a complete, interconnected experience. As an integrated solution, it’s the logical step for businesses that want to create a more modern workplace that is secure, adaptable and competitive.
At Dynamic Business Technologies, we know the 5 most common IT villains your business is facing – and we know how to help you defeat them.
Villain 1: Security breaches
One of the biggest challenges many businesses face right now is meeting increased data protection compliance. Following the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by the EU, the Australian government is increasing its focus with National Data Breach legislation.
What this means is that businesses need to ensure they are systematic in how they are managing and protection personally identifiable information (PII) and personal health information (PHI). Any business that employs staff from the EU or customers from the EU (for example, anyone with dual European citizenship) can be held account to the rigorous EU GDPR laws.
With integrated security controls, Microsoft 365 can help you to meet your data protection requirements.
Villain 2: Mobility
One of the benefits of cloud platforms and digitisation that many employees love is the ability to work from any device. But from a business management point of view, this can be a nightmare for security with the increased risk of malware and viruses, not to mention more people being able to access protected data if devices are lost.
Microsoft 365 helps to alleviate some of these security risks with Enterprise Mobility+Security. Devices can be remotely managed and authorised with pre-set access, and if a device is lost or stolen, access can be revoked.
Villain 3: Collaboration
In an ever speeding up business environment, the ability for staff and customers to work together – from wherever they are – is more important than ever. Microsoft 365 is a brilliant solution to address this issue with the ability to work together on the same document thanks to SharePoint and communicate better with Microsoft Teams.
We can help you to define what you need and ensure you are only paying for the features that you will use.
Villain 4: Spiralling costs
Managing on-site servers can be a costly exercise. There’s the initial cost of the hardware and then ongoing costs to maintain them. By moving to Microsoft 365, Dynamic Business Technologies can help you to get rid of your email server, SharePoint server and more. It’s the logical step for businesses that are already using Office 365, integrating your IT systems into one easy-to-manage platform.
Then there’s also the costs of digitising your workplace, like licensing and training. It can easily become an endless hole if not managed properly. At Dynamic Business Technologies, we can help you to squash the villain that is spiralling IT costs by starting with a comprehensive assessment of what you need, ensuring you aren’t paying for extras you won’t use, and providing access to affordable on-going training and support.
Villain 5: Standardisation
How many hours are you wasting by manually updating your software? And how is that having an impact on your team’s productivity? What about issues with team members having different versions of software that’s causing compatibility issues?
Microsoft 365 allows you to automate the updates for all your services, saving time and money. Dynamic Business Technologies can make sure that your services are consistent across your workforce, as well as help you to program updates to take place outside of business hours reducing disruption to your team.
