reduce-costs-not-performance-in-your-data-centerYour company is facing a tough challenge. In today’s digitized economy, virtually every business process, from email to billing, runs through a data center. So your company needs access to high-quality IT services in order to operate and grow.

Resources, however, are tight in your organization these days. And as a result, it’s getting harder to keep your data center running at a high level. You continuously have to do more, with less money, and something has to give.

Fortunately, you’re not alone. According to Gartner, IT spend is forecast to decline 0.5 percent during 2016. Economic uncertainties are causing organizations to clamp down on spending, and IT departments are being significantly impacted by this.

The trick to overcoming resource shortages in the data center, Gartner explains, is to optimize your IT infrastructure and cut costs wherever possible. But this is not always easy to accomplish. In fact, it could be downright risky. Making the wrong move to save money — like investing in a cost-effective but low quality switch — could actually wind up costing you more money in the long run.

There are multiple points to consider when purchasing, deploying and managing IT equipment, and it’s important to take each and every one into consideration. For this reason, many businesses are now turning to private IT consulting firms that can safely reduce expenses and improve efficiencies.

One such company is Hidalgo Communications, a technology and telecommunications consulting firm that architects, delivers and supports purpose-built IT services and solutions.

Hidalgo Communications, it should be noted, is getting noticed for its efforts. The company was just named to CIOReview’s annual 20 Most Promising IT Infrastructure Solutions Providers 2016 list.
