5 myths of Information Technology

 
Information Technology is the essential support function for any business.  It is the only department in a company which is constantly evolving and changing, all thanks to the global technological advancements.
The innovation in this field is massive and high paced, which is directly proportional to the number of confused customers or potential buyers, because of the number of option, technologies along with the large number of buzz words and acronym invented on daily basis.
The advancement of technology and the feasibility to use a system or solution for your organization are two different things. This lead us to the five biggest myths of Information Technology.




Cloud is the future: Cloud has been around for quite some time now, however the way solution integrators pitch it is not always true. Whoever the service provider, they will never able to transform your Infrastructure to cloud.

Managed Services are hassle free:  Procuring these services will save IT budget and eliminate the cumbersome approval process. Obviously at initial stage the companies enjoy the no “one time cost” formula but for the long run the “monthly recurring charges” will become very painful.

One Heterogeneous Monitoring system: It is self explanatory lie as no vendor or manufacturer wants this to become reality. So whenever a sales rep claims so be aware it is too good to be true.

We are the market leaders: It is the oldest trick in the book of technology sales staffs. They never bother to intelligence or expertise of their potential customers and told you this lie as much as they want.


Agent-less integration: There is no true agent less integration available for any IT solution. All the backup or monitoring tools claiming that is not correct. Whenever you observe or experience such technology, you must closely verify the backend agent and system communication. With a little digging you will definitely find the hidden agent running or install/uninstalling in the background. And if there is not agent than get ready for “basic features” only crap.
