Modern organizations are under constant pressure to adopt the latest and greatest technology to remain competitive. However, when faced with challenges like multi-location infrastructure updates or overly complicated bills from too many vendors, keeping up with the rapidly evolving technology landscape can seem like a losing battle for large enterprises.
TailWind is an IT service provider that helps enterprises take the burden of IT management – across your entire organization – off your shoulders. We have served enterprises with 100+ locations and warehouse-sized (500,000+ square feet) facilities for over 15 years with hands-on solutions, including stage and configuration, structured cabling, asset management, and more, so we know what it takes to simplify your large-scale technology systems.
What IT Challenges Do Enterprises Face?
Breaking down the many IT challenges enterprises encounter can help you identify where complications are stagnating your growth – and how your business can benefit from simplifying your IT systems with a trusted partner like TailWind. Several problems are consistent for IT departments in large enterprises across various industries, including:
Downtime During Multi-Location Network Upgrades
Taking advantage of new technology can be difficult for large enterprises with hundreds of locations to upgrade. Enterprise IT teams have to account for hundreds of sites with data servers, routers, cables, racks, wireless access points, and more for multi-location upgrades. Replacing outdated hardware and systems is critical for continued growth, but many enterprises suffer lost revenue from network downtime totaling $300,000 to $400,0001 per hour during upgrades.
Improper or Unoptimized Technology Configuration
IDC expects enterprises to spend $2.8 trillion on digital infrastructure globally by 2025.2 Still, it doesn’t matter how much time and money you put into updating your infrastructure if an expert in enterprise IT doesn’t handle it. From cabling to network settings, incorrectly configured technology – or worse, improperly installed cabling or equipment – can result in significant revenue and productivity losses. Determining where your IT infrastructure is falling short with a free site survey from an enterprise expert like TailWind can mitigate these losses and keep issues from snowballing.
Juggling Too Many Carriers and Services
Each of your business’s locations likely uses a variety of carriers for different services – which vary from the vendors and services your other locations use. Enterprises that manage multiple carriers across multi-location voice, data, and networking systems often struggle with juggling multiple bills and not knowing who to call when there’s a service issue.
How Do TailWind’s Expert Solutions Simplify Enterprise IT?
More than 40,000 locations across North America rely on TailWind for solutions that solve enterprise and multi-location business IT challenges. If you’re tired of facing challenges like:
