Good Practices Often Yield Good Results

If you are a frequent reader of our blog, you will notice that “best practices” is a term that is used generously. That is because there are certain ways to go about things when you are working with technology. Today, we wanted to go over what the term actually means and why they are important when managing your business. 

Explaining Best Practices

Enterprise research company Gartner defines best practices as:

“…a group of tasks that optimizes the efficiency (cost and risk) or effectiveness (service level) of the business discipline or process to which it contributes. It must be implementable, replicable, transferable and adaptable across industries.”

How We Establish Practices as “Best”

When we talk about “best” practices, we are simply outlining actions that can be taken to result in the best outcome. It’s that simple. If we are discussing IT strategies, security strategies, or actions you should take to improve your success rate with technology, we typically refer to them as best practices.

As IT professionals, we are always actively seeking strategies to help our clients succeed more often. If you would like to have a conversation about a specific issue you are having with your business’ IT, give us a call and our experts can help you establish practices that take your business where you want it to go.
