Security, Stability, Integrations and Ease of Use – 4 Pinnacles of an IT Evaluation
Productivity, efficiency and business advantage are the criteria by which IT-spend is measured by any organization.In a world where there is constant innovation and new ideas and products sprout up very quickly, it is important to keep certain key parameters constant so that the evaluation process does not have to keep re-inventing itself.
Security is a significant, yet an almost invisible factor in the global IT arena and it comes with three major attributes –
- Data confidentiality, which is an assurance that the information can be accessed only by those with the right credentials.
- Data integrity, which dictates that unauthorized parties cannot alter or forge the data.
- Data availability, which ensures that critical information and services will be available to the right people when they need it.
The better an organization’s technical resources the more capable it is of meeting complex evaluations across a range of environments. With the increasing sophistication in the type of security threats it is of paramount importance that regular assessments be undertaken.
Stability in IT on the other hand, directly translates to business agility. An organization’s IT infrastructure should have strong foundations allowing it to be agile and flexible, hence significant investments in the right IT solutions are needed to give it both head start and momentum to power through. At Replicon, the other term that goes along with this is, ROI (return on investment). It is both a promise to its numerous customers and an assurance that all factors that make up the IT evaluation quadrangle, are a given with its time management solutions.
In the world of IT evaluation, stability is linked with reliability and scalability which are vital ingredients in creating business value. Ease of use is one of the best possible ways to make an IT product/solution stand head and shoulders above the crowd. Replicon’s time tracking software wins hands down in this. In global studies when vendors are ranked on value, quality, usefulness of product, ease of use is usually the attribute that scores the highest.
Studies also show that ease of use makes for higher adoption rates which lead to greater success in projects. A product/solution that empowers all types of users to easily do their jobs better enjoys sustained user adoption.
Replicon stands firmly behind the principle that smooth integration with other solutions is a critical factor in a top-notch timesheet software solution. It is this ability that helps in getting quality results in less time and at a lesser cost. A single, integrated source that delivers complete information allows organizations to speed up decision-making without compromising on quality. And faster decision-making is cost effective and efficient and ultimately leads to greater employee satisfaction.
Replicon believes that for a robust IT solution the role of evaluation is of utmost significance. Using these four measures organizations can stay ahead of the curve and at the same time keep up with compliance and business requirements.
