Ring the Changes

Should you change for the sake of change?

While visiting the Gadget Show Live last week, it occurred to me that there are so many things to choose from, so many innovations, so much ‘stuff’ that its becoming harder and harder to make the right decisions about how to get the best from your IT.

The pace of change is increasing all the time and grabbing the next new thing in order not to be left behind may not always be the best course of action. Our business is all about change and its our job to keep up to date with the latest version of everything so that we can advise you about the things you need to know and the things you can ignore.

For example, we’ve been hearing quite a few grumbles about things not working properly when people make the switch to Windows 8. From a business perspective,   my advice would always be to let any new operating system settle down and get its bugs fixed before adopting it. You don’t have to jump right in and become part of the testing process! This just wastes your valuable time.  (We can still supply Windows 7 computers for your business and help you make the switch if you need to when 8 has stabilized.)

With so many new things on offer you can’t keep up to date with everything and still spend time running your business so let me do that for you – that’s *my* business!

In 2013 we’ll be flagging up things that you can do every week to make your IT work better and help you to make more profit. You can hear me every week on my IT slot on local radio and ask questions and take part in discussions on our LinkedIn Group, or, when in doubt just Tweet me @Ask_Ken or pick up the phone (01480 469019) and ask me!
