In business, you take risks. Some may be more calculated than others, but the only way to grow is to take them on. One corporate risk that continues to weigh on the minds of IT management is: What if we train our employees and they leave? Or, what if we don’t and they stay? Both options pose some risk, but that risk can be manageable. It’s nearing the end of the year and many organizations are setting their budgets for 2014. While training continues to have an associated risk, many organizations are quick to eliminate the expense from a budget when times are tough. The financial expense of training is only half the equation, however. The time away from the job also poses an issue. Do you have the available resources to cover while that employee is out training? This can be especially difficult for some IT departments as certifications can be expensive and staff can be out of the office for up to ten days putting a strain on his or her department. So, why then, should an organization consider sending their IT staff to training? There are a multitude of reasons. According to CompTIA and International Data Corporation (IDC), research has shown that over 50% of computer errors or significant downtimes within an organization are caused by human error attributed to a significant lack of training on core systems. A 2009 IDC survey concluded that unscheduled downtime was, on average, 20% lower in organizations with more certified IT […]

It’s been decades since the 1939 debut of L. Frank Baum’s Oz adventure on the silver screen and his perceived satirical view of technology, depicted as a wizard who is flashy, but ultimately powerless. While today’s technology is anything but powerless, there are still some steps you can take to ensure your physical IT environment is running at optimal efficiency. “A Bad Beginning Makes a Bad Ending” – Euripedes Clean cabling in a data center starts with proper planning. Unfortunately, many companies do not plan their wiring projects well enough and they end up with a spaghetti mess of cables in the server room. “Cabling reflects the type of environment you can expect,” says Donald Jacobs, Consulting Engineer for Heartland Business Systems. “Clean server rooms usually mean process and procedure (are in place) as well as good documentation.” By having a design with documentation in place, many tangled issues can be avoided. Color coding your cables for use in network devices is an easy way to know what type of traffic is flowing over the cable and whether the cable leads to your server or a wireless access device. Labeling your patch panel and even the cables themselves will also save you countless headaches down the line. When this type of documentation is lacking, finger tracing your way through the tangles of cable can become similar to Dorothy’s trek down the Yellow Brick Road, encountering unforeseen obstacles along the way, getting lost and having to follow along your way again.
