As we approach the New Year, it’s an ideal time for businesses planning an office relocation or expansion to also revitalize their IT strategy. This move represents not just a physical shift, but a prime opportunity for technological renewal and better alignment with your business goals for the upcoming year.
Key Steps for a Successful IT Relocation:
- Early Planning: Initiate your IT relocation strategy well in advance. This provides ample time to thoroughly assess your current technology in relation to both short-term and long-term business objectives, setting a solid foundation for your IT move.
- Discovery and Goal Setting: Involve your IT team in a discovery phase to identify the technological needs and aspirations for your new office. Clearly understanding the roles and responsibilities of each team member is essential for a smooth transition.
- Developing an IT Move Plan: Formulate a comprehensive plan that encompasses timelines and coordination with external contractors. This plan should cover aspects like:
- Data cabling and network configuration
- Electrical and HVAC planning
- Security system installation
- Telecommunications setup (phones, fax machines)
- Collaboration with interior designers and office furnishing firms
- Review and Upgrade: Leverage the office move as an opportunity to evaluate and potentially upgrade your IT infrastructure. Consider important questions such as:
- Are you achieving the desired outcomes with your current technology?
- Is your IT roadmap aligned with your evolving business strategy?
- Do your hardware and software setups require updates?
