Organisations need to focus on their core business without having to worry about the infrastructure it sits on
Enterprises across the North West are being challenged to take cost out of their operation by reviewing their existing IT infrastructure.
The campaign, being undertaken by Runcorn based IT software and services company, Polymorph, is targeting organisations ranging from large multinationals through to SMEs throughout the North West region.
According to the annual TechTarget Survey* 50% of IT professionals in the UK said their IT spending would either decrease or remain static in 2012. Nearly 40% of the same sample said their organisations are recovering slowly from the downturn, and 30% said they were still struggling.
Steve Harris, managing director, Polymorph, stated: "It is now clear that the economy is at best stagnating if not actually in recession. It is no longer an option for organisations to sit tight and hope that the economy will bounce back any time soon. Budgets - if not already under pressure - will begin to feel the heat, as the drive to take cost out of all areas of the enterprise will begin anew,"
"Nowhere will that become more apparent than in IT. With the overwhelming majority of budgets already allocated to just standing still, many IT departments have very little cash with which to introduce innovative cost saving initiatives. Now is the time to consider migrating to a managed service, one that will truly deliver OpEx cash savings to the business," he added.
"We are involved with a variety of IT projects from bespoke software development through to infrastructure projects including cloud technologies, consultancy, training and support services so we are well positioned to help drive down the cost of IT, and in so doing taking cost out of the business and driving up operating profit," he continued.
Established in February 2000, Polymorph works with organisations in all sectors from large multinationals through to small and medium sized businesses and has a track record of providing consultancy, solutions and support services to meet a wide range of business needs.
"Our background is around Microsoft, Google, Apple and IBM technologies. We are a Microsoft Certified Gold Partner in Portals and Collaboration and IBM Premier Partner, which ideally positions us to help organisations through a mix of IT support services, including Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint, and network and infrastructure design in the form of local area network systems and cloud technologies.
"There is an increasing realisation taking place in the market that IT departments can't delay spending any more. Some have really cut back too far, and others realise if they make investments now, that would make them more agile when the upturn comes. For many this journey may be daunting, but with the help and professional guidance of an organisation such as Polymorph the transition to an agile enterprise can be done with ease and simplicity," he concluded.
