      The Internet Continues to Change Business

      High-Speed Data
      The Internet was around a while before broadband was rolled out, but today data delivery systems necessitate that users have a fast Internet connection. With all the options that the average business has to choose from, many of them are only feasible if a company has the necessary bandwidth available to run the technology they depend on.

      The strength of the Internet for today’s business is largely based on the availability of high-speed Internet. If your business lacks the bandwidth it needs to utilize cloud-hosted platforms, communications solutions, and other important business applications, it can not only create substantial data bottlenecks, it can hinder collaboration and productivity.

      Mobile Data
      The development of the Internet has coincided with the development and innovation of the smartphone. Today, 77 percent of all Americans have a smartphone. The main benefit of a smartphone is the development of applications (apps) that provide shortcuts to web-based platforms, and plenty of additional functionality.

      The numbers suggest that more content is viewed on mobile devices than on desktop or laptop PCs today, making it extremely important that cellular and wireless Internet is readily available and fast enough to facilitate all the demand. Most of us pay twice for Internet (home and cellular), but the figures show that there are more people than ever today eliminating the cost and paying for one or the other. This has led to nearly 20 percent of smartphone owners forgoing at-home broadband service and utilizing their cellular data plans. As this number rises, it will have an effect on every device market, as well as the sustainability of affordable high-speed Internet.

      Communication
      Another strength of the modern Internet is the numerous ways it can facilitate successful and secure communications. Platforms such as telephone, instant messaging, email, as well as newer applications that prioritize collaboration fuel what are major changes in the way people communicate.

      Today’s Internet-based communications are a major profit center for a business. While it would seem that these solutions would come without a lot of return, without them, many businesses would see their profitability fall off to a point where growth simply isn’t possible. The Internet also provides options for conferencing, webinars, and other group meetings that provide organizations the kind of end-to-end communication they need to keep business rolling.

      Supply Chain
      One of the biggest challenges for business is to keep a successful supply chain running. Changes in technology have provided the ability for businesses to acquire the things they need affordably improve dramatically. Internet-connected software, communications solutions, and other platforms are changing the way manufacturers and retailers handle their supply chains.

      Tackling the logistical problems that typically come with a supply chain system can be one of the biggest headaches for any business. Access to resources that can be connected to the Internet, such as e-commerce, enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management; not to mention the significant real-time communications options provided on the Internet, allow people to manage their procurement and distribution better, while routinely providing direct access to vendor representatives that can keep business moving faster and more effectively.

      Marketing and Sales
      One of the most obvious ways the Internet has helped business is by making a company’s products or services available to larger markets. Since marketing - and, specifically Internet marketing - has become a major investment for many organizations, companies have to have a dedicated plan in place that turns traditional advertising on its head.

      Many organizations have invested heavily in this aspect of their business, but for those that cannot, the use of social media is another great option. With low overhead and the ability to touch hundreds and thousands of people in a short span of time, many organizations that do invest heavily in marketing also utilize their social media accounts for their benefit.

      The Internet continues to be used by many organizations to conduct business. How does your business utilize the Internet? Has it been beneficial for your company, or has it been a struggle? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below, and make sure to return to our blog for more great technology information and commentary.

      Tip of the Week: You Better Test Your Backup

      We’ll discuss some of the most important parts of a data backup solution and how you can keep track of whether or not it will work to keep your business safe in the long run.

      The Key Parts of Data Backup
      The best kinds of backup solutions have three major aspects to them. They are all important to making sure that the solution can benefit your organization. Here they are:

      • Snapshot-based backups: Your backups should be taken periodically throughout the workday so that you can keep data loss to a minimum on the off-chance that you ever encounter a disaster. Snapshot-based backups can be taken as often as every fifteen minutes to minimize data loss.
      • Quick data recovery: You need to have a solution in place that can plan for rapid data recovery. Minimizing costs associated with downtime is critical to the success of any business continuity plan.
      • Testing to ensure proper backups: How do you know your data backups work if you never test them? You should be testing your backups to make sure that they will work as intended when you need them most.

      Why Testing Your Backups Is Important
      Imagine that you’re in a situation where your business is having an ordinary workday, only to experience a sudden disaster scenario. It doesn’t really matter which scenario it is, whether it’s a power surge, tropical storm, or hacking incident--the point is that it’s a situation where you won’t last long without data backup of some sort. You try to deploy your data backup, but the files are corrupted or you don’t have an infrastructure to back up to. Now what? You’re stuck in a situation where your organization needs to recover, but it can’t.

      If you fail to test your backups regularly, your business--and, by extension, the futures of both yourself and your employees--is at risk. Therefore, testing is something that you absolutely cannot ignore.

      What You Should Do
      If working with your business’ technology isn’t what you would call your strongest skill, working with a managed service provider can help you make the right calls concerning your organization’s future.

      Human Error is a Major Problem for Businesses

      Here are three tips for reducing human error in the workplace.

      Provide Proper Training
      Surprisingly enough, if you train your employees properly, you won’t have to worry about them making mistakes; at least, not as much as you would under untrained circumstances. You should take care to properly outline all of your processes in a way that’s easy to understand, including both intensive and routine tasks, as well as having an established workflow for reporting issues or identifying security problems with spam or phishing emails.

      Limit User Permissions
      Not all users will need the same permissions on their devices. For example, an IT administrator might need admin permissions, but the average user won’t. The same can be said for access to specific data on your network. You should partition off certain information to only those departments that might need it so you can avoid an access issue with other employees. Basically, the fewer permissions a user has on their device or network, the less harm can come of it in the event a hacker manages to sneak their way in.

      Use Your Collective Workforce to “Crowdsource” for Quality
      We’re sure you’ve heard the phrase “two heads are better than one,” and you’ll be interested to hear that the same phrase can be applied to the workplace. If you have a large project that could use an extra pair of eyes, why not ask your coworkers for a quick glance? It might help putting out a project with glaring errors that you might not notice because you’ve been staring at it for a few weeks straight. You can think of this process as beta testing in a way, as you can determine potential problems with a product before it is actually released to the public. This can prevent a loss of profit from a product or service that’s not ready to be released can bring if it’s thrown out into the world too soon.

      If your business wants to cut out the dangers of human error in the workplace, LSeven Solutions can help. To learn more, reach out to us at (877) 4-LSeven.
