In IT, as in many fields, it is important for companies and organizations to consult an expert before undertaking a project or a purchase of technology equipment. It is certainly very easy to do an online search to find the equipment and software that will seem to meet all your needs, but it is just as easy to get the wrong products and then end up with a multitude of problems and additional costs.

There is much more to comparison than numbers (Gigabyte, Gigahertz, Terabyte, Megabits, etc.) to properly equip your company with the right technologies. That’s why a computer advisor can certainly better guide you than our friend "Google".

The technological needs for a business differ greatly from those for family use or for simple entertainment. It is important to understand the issues of security, compliance, stability, compatibility and many other factors that will have a great influence on the performance and continuity of a business. Whether at the level of networking, workstations, servers, storage, etc., all elements must be evaluated according to the real needs of the company before the acquisition. For example, a business router designed for the enterprise will certainly be more expensive than a home router but will offer much more personalized management that will significantly increase the stability and security of all business transactions.

It’s the same for workstations; the tool most often used by employees to perform their daily tasks. It is important to choose a workstation based on productivity and be guided to the professional option that will be more stable, more secure and offer a better service as well as a better guarantee. Generally, home products are guaranteed 1 year, and the guaranteed product must be sent for sometimes weeks for repair, while the professional range products generally include 3 to 5 years of on-site warranty the next working day or better according to needs.

Moreover, it is equally important to acquire software that matches the type of use that will be made of it. When integrating new software, you must be well informed not only about the desired features, but also about the types of licenses, as well as the uses allowed by each of them. Manufacturers generally sell different versions of their software for businesses and in most cases, the use of family-based software is not allowed for business use. It is therefore essential to consult the software conditions of use that are purchased to ensure good compliance to them.

Since it is sometimes very difficult to navigate among the thousands of options available, the best way is to call on an expert in the field of computer science and thus acquire optimal hardware and software tailored to the needs of your business. In conclusion, the use of equipment and solutions that meet your real needs will bring a lot of value to the business or organization through better performance, increased security, and improved reliability that will allow it to flourish instead of solving computer problems.
