ICT is an indispensable tool for running any business since it provides a way to connect your talent, clients, suppliers and increases productivity within your organization.
3 Important aspects that you need to take into account when evaluating ICT setups:
  1. If you can move your applicationsto the cloud it would be better since it would save you maintenance, backing up data, paying up front for licenses
  2. Standardize your various hardware devices so that it would become easier for you to manage and maintain
