Step into the world of business, with a guide by your side.
Starting a business is not easy. The journey of an entrepreneur is riddled with challenges and stumbling blocks. There are deep-pocketed Goliaths to stand up to, teeming competition to stand out from, and an increasingly demanding group of consumers to please. And for every problem, there’s an ocean of solutions to choose from. Without the right guidance, it is easy to lose focus from what you set out to do. You need someone you can trust, to empower and guide you every step of the way.

Starting a business is never easy, and yet there is no shortage of people willing to go all the way in order to see their entrepreneurial dreams succeed. According to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM), 27 million working-age Americans are starting or running new business. And survival in this swarming sea of startups is now determined by the clever application of technology as an industry-disruptor.
To ensure sustained growth of your business, it is imperative you consider technology, not just as an enabler, but the bedrock on which your business is built. There are three aspects that you need to be mindful of while developing the technology strategy for your business:
- Your must-have technology
- Specialised technology for your profession or industry
- Support and assistance to fuel success
New and emerging businesses need rock-solid IT infrastructure as the foundation of their survival and growth. The requirements for IT may vary, depending on the nature of the business as well as the stage of development your business is in. But there are certain must-haves which no business can operate without.
Whether you are operating from a friend's garage or a downtown business center, there are some IT requirements that are integral to the successful running of your business.
Efficiency is not just an expectation but a demand in today’s perpetually short-staffed Startups. Technology can play a key role in boosting the productivity of employees who constantly juggle multiple responsibilities.
Perhaps the hardest stage of a Startup’s journey is acquiring and retaining a strong customer base. Here too, it’s survival of the technologically fittest.
Starting a business and growing a business are two different things. Without the right technology it's difficult to sustain and grow. Agility and scalability is what your business needs to sustain and grow.
SPECIALISED profession and
There are some basic technology requirements for all and any kind of Startup.
But some businesses have additional unique requirements from their devices.
Is your business one of them?
The knowledge services market is driven by vast amounts of data and a high volume of customer interactions. The sensitive nature of data handled by such firms necessitates the use of professional-class security protocols. Also, end-user compute devices with high processing power, multiple connectivity ports, and superior audio-visual capabilities are essential for knowledge-based Startups to operate effectively.
The IT requirements of tech Startups are difficult to categorise. They can range from the fairly obvious to highly specialised, depending on the nature of their work. High processing power is an umbrella requirement, but high memory capacity, advanced graphics capabilities, and testing environment facility also feature prominently in the list of requirements.
If you are a design Startup, graphic capability and processing power take priority when choosing end-user devices for a significant portion of your workforce. Also, to ensure critical design applications run smoothly and trustworthily, Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) certification is not just preferred but necessary.
