Are you an ostrich or a magpie?

To achieve sustainable business growth your IT must be able to keep pace and be in concert with your business goals. If not, you are putting your efficiency, effectiveness and most importantly profitability at risk.

If your business growth goals are ambitious then you need to have IT that is agile enough to cope with all the challenges that rapid growth brings such as ecommerce, recurring billing, customer relationship management, purchasing, payroll etc.

If you don’t do this you could find that your IT is not only limiting your business growth but actually threatening it.
