As we came out of the pandemic, there were additional IT Issues that cropped up in the IT World. Issues ranged from information security….especially for remote workers, cyber-attacks, and business continuity. Businesses owners agree that “now is the time to implement an IT strategy as part of your overall business goals.”
Some of the issues facing the industry in 2022 and beyond include:
Data Protection and Privacy
The rapid escalation of online purchasing and contactless buying has increased significantly and will only enhance the need for businesses to strengthen their policies on data protection. The pandemic took its toll on many consumers and most consumers are eager to find businesses they can trust. In fact, 81% said that “trust” was something they needed before buying.
By implementing data protection and information security policies and procedures to ensure that customer data remains private, you can gain and retain the trust of consumers.
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
The events of the last two years — supply chain uncertainty, market shifts, destructive weather and public health crises, have brought new IT needs into clearer focus. Many businesses were not prepared to take their employees and operations remote. Businesses across the world scrambled to procure the necessary technologies or additional licensing they needed to resume operations. In 2021, businesses were prioritizing their technology to prevent similar delays from occurring in the future. This year, businesses are making it a priority to ensure that operations can continue in the face of these obstacles.
Creating an Agile Workplace
As the digital transformation continues, it is important for IT leaders to choose new technology wisely to ensure that all of their IT services and systems play well with one another.
In 2022, businesses need to make decisions based on IT strategy while planning for the future. Although no one can predict where technologies will ultimately land, planning an agile infrastructure is certainly a top priority.
