If your business has ever moved premises, decided to share office space with a sister company, or adopted a change in working practices, then you know what a headache managing the IT and communications that accompany such a change can be.
In today’s commercial environment where companies and their staff want to work more flexibly, where businesses are looking to respond quickly and agilely to market developments and where staff automatically expect to have options for flexible working, such transitions will only become more commonplace. From an infrastructure point of view, moving to new premises or changing working practices can present a complex logistical challenge. IT and other systems need to be integrated quickly and cost effectively, without any disruption to services that could negatively impact customers. And all this can be further complicated when two or more organisations come together with different systems and different types of connectivity.
