Things change and business grow and evolve over time. It’s imperative that you make sure your IT infrastructure supports those changes.

A network assessment should provide a full inventory list, as well as a comprehensive map of your network. This should outline things like applications, connected devices and policies among your network. Having network assessments completed by third parties can help your IT network stay up to date and secure.


Here are 3 reasons your business can benefit from an in depth network assessment

  1. Find Cost Savings. A network assessment should look at equipment on your network and their ages. It should look at all of the applications and softwares being used or paid for. Often times when you take inventory, you’ll find softwares or applications that are no longer being used. You may find old accounts that aren’t being used, like email addresses. By eliminating those things not in use, you can have significant cost savings in some instanced. There is also always a potential to find new cost saving technologies to implement, like cloud solutions.


  1. Develop a strategic road map for your IT infrastructure. Having insight into your network is valuable. This can help you and your IT team create strategies to move your business forward. By knowing what you have you, you’ll be able to determine what you need in the future. Whether that’s transitioning to different technologies, consolidating or creating automation.
