Over the past decade, changes have been bubbling up within the Information Technology industry at a rate faster than perhaps ever before. Not since the spread of the personal computer and the beginnings of the Internet have so many things been happening in such a short time. But things aren’t just changing because of the introduction of a single dramatic new technology. There are a number of significant technological and social shifts that are opening up incalculable new opportunities, while requiring a profound rethink of how business should be done.
Although a number of these developments remain largely underground, where they’ve fermented, known primarily to those in IT, some have already burst their shell and are now propagating in popular culture. Among the newest to make the break are the fields of Big Data and Cloud Computing, fast becoming the hottest topics at both tech and business conventions. And each of these topics has a dozen off-shoots that may or may not be pertinent to a particular business enterprise.
The fact is that many companies, including major corporations, aren’t sure where all of this is going. Even the top IT gurus have different ideas about what it all means, and how to best prepare, leaving much of the business world in a quandary about what to invest in and how fast to do it. All they know is that it’s no longer business-as-usual.
Beacon Enterprise Solutions Group, a global provider of IT solutions, doesn’t pretend it can foretell the future. Rather the company focuses on ensuring that its many large clients around the world have IT environments that are not only integrated, comprehensive, and reliable, but are also flexibly designed to take on a future that is not always predictable. It requires exactly the opposite of the patchwork project-oriented approach so common in the world of IT outsourcing and servicing.
Beacon becomes a partner with its clients, giving it the opportunity for an in-depth understanding of each company’s unique goals and requirements, both short term and long term. By approaching design and implementation with an eye for the whole organization and for how the newest technologies may change the landscape in years to come, Beacon offers a form of IT stability that is increasingly hard to find. It’s one of the reasons the company has weathered the global recession so much better than its competitors.
