Budgeting & Planning Your IT Expenditures
Prioritizing and allocating funds to IT spending is no easy task. IT covers a wide range of resources—such as workstations, servers, routers, internet bandwidth, and software costs.
With information gained from an IT Technology Review, your vCIO will create an IT budget/plan that doesn’t allocate too little or too much. Our team works with clients in CT and in NY from Danbury to Stamford, White Plains to Bridgeport.
Understanding What Makes a Good IT Budget or PlanIT is complex. For that reason, it’s easy to acquire too many (or too little) IT resources. A good IT budget/plan reflects an understanding of the needs of the business. By leveraging that understanding, an IT budget can be created that prioritizes urgent IT resources, and delays acquiring non-critical resources when possible. In addition, a good budget will allow room for money to be spent on maintenance, replacing technology, and acquiring software licenses.
