Does your business struggle to keep obsolete IT hardware running? Outdated IT systems can put your organization at a competitive disadvantage. They are also a security risk. However, the global pandemic has disrupted the supply of microchips, which means replacement hardware is harder to obtain and more expensive. That’s why you need to plan ahead, and work with a partner who can provide the IT services and support you need for an affordable monthly subscription.
Struggling to maintain obsolete IT systems?
Does your IT hardware need an update? Typically, outdated hardware is prone to errors and failures. Old IT systems are more vulnerable to cyberattacks and data breaches. Antiquated hardware is expensive and difficult to maintain. Legacy IT equipment is often incompatible with newer systems. And finally, having to rely on outdated computers and dodgy network equipment is frustrating, inconvenient and unproductive.
Why persist with outdated hardware?
Organizations continue to run obsolete IT equipment because of the supposed costs and inconvenience of modernizing. However, the costs and inconvenience of maintaining old hardware increases every year.
What and when to update
The lifespan of office IT equipment differs depending on the type of device and manufacturer. The following is just a rough guide to when old hardware is likely to need an update:
- Multi-function printers: 3-5 years
- Servers: 4-5 years
- Desktop computers: 4 years
- Laptop computers: 3 years
- Smartphones: 2 years
Plan ahead to avoid disappointment
The global pandemic disrupted the supply of computer equipment. Intel’s Chief Executive estimates the worldwide shortage of microchips will continue for another two years. That’s why it is important you start planning now for the new hardware your business will need over the next few years.
