MANILA –A trend among businesses right now is “Going digital” since it boosts overall productivity in the workplace and in the market.

It means maximizing new and available technologies and models in the areas of Social Media, Mobility, Data Analytics, Cloud, and Security in order to make work and processes more efficient and effective.

TJ Rosal, Assistant Vice President for Sales and Marketing of CuroTeknika, stressed the importance of IT and said, “In light of the global digital shift, IT is in a position where it can make significant business impact. It is time for IT to take on a more strategic role within the organization by developing technology-driven tools, systems, and processes that add value to the business. This is an opportune moment for IT to make a shift from being a company’s mere maintenance hub to a major growth driver.”

IT infrastructure become more complex as their companies grow, placing IT in a dilemma of keeping their current infrastructure up and running rather than focus on strategic initiatives.

A study by the Computing Technology Industry Association, which surveyed 350 executives, revealed that companies outsource IT in order to improve efficiency and to free their IT staff to work on strategic projects.

“Businesses today need to be dynamic and agile. The IT of the future will be the enablers in enhancing value creation for businesses, paving the way to compete not only locally but globally. This is the time to explore new technologies and while they are at it, CuroTeknika can support the day-to-day upkeep of their IT infrastructure,” said Rosal.

With the help of a managed IT service provider like CuroTeknika, companies can stay on track or better yet ahead with strategies and projects that add more value to the business.
