Why are your business IT costs so high? Here are some of the main culprits:
Maintaining your own IT systems is costly:
- Purchase costs
- Running costs
- Maintenance costs
- Licensing costs
- Staffing costs
Reducing onsite hardware helps to cut costs.
Old/outdated software can be a major drain on budgets:
More than 2 out of 5 survey respondents estimated that unwanted applications drain more than 10% of their IT budgets.
For 1 in 10, the estimated cost is more than 20%.
And the expense of maintaining these systems is growing as they continue to age.
You need people to run IT systems. The more systems you have, the more people you need to keep them running.
31% expect their workforce to stay the same.
17% expect to reduce headcount.
If your workforce isn’t shrinking, nor is your wage bill.
