The effects of Hurricane Sandy are being felt along the East Coast. Some 1.8 million homes and businesses are still without power, according to the US News and many IT Principals are doing what they can to get back to work as quickly as possible. In some cases, this involves using the latest innovations and having the resources available to run them successfully.
Akiva Goldstein, the CEO of a tech consulting firm in Manhattan, was interviewed by the blog Melodika about the steps that businesses should take to ensure they can remain plugged in following a disaster.
"While New York and neighboring states work on cleaning up post-Sandy, businesses are faced with the daunting task of getting back up and running after the super storm's mega interruption," said Goldstein. "Many returning to work can expect to face a messy technology situation."
Much of Goldstein's advice involves companies making sure that their serves and internet are working properly and sustainably. On top of that, remote and cloud access can allow companies to stay open while employees work safely from their homes while riding out the storms with their families.
All the benefits that technology can bring to a company when it comes to productivity and profitability are important, but the ability to keep working despite a power outage can be the biggest one. However, for these policies to be effective, IT Principals need to have reliable resources that can handle the required setup. VARs and MSPs can provide the impactful talent that IT departments need and VAR Staffing has proven to be the go-to provider of game-changing personnel.
