Proactive Maintenance

By: Contributor Last Updated: November 28, 2012

computerWe are taught from an early age that we need to be proactive with keeping up on automobile maintenance, and that this will extend the life of the car. With cars, every three months (or 3,000 miles, as we're taught) they need to have the oil changed in order for the engine to continue functioning properly.

While it's in the shop, they're also going through their own special combination of proactive maintenance by checking the fluids and making you aware of any additional steps that need to be taken in order to keep your vehicle in tip top shape.

The same can be said for technology except for the fact that technology ages more quickly than vehicles so rather than performing this maintenance four times a year it needs to happen at least once a month. Instead of an engine, with belts and all of the moving parts, computers have files, shared resources, programs, and let’s not forget hardware-- that all needs to work together and be configured just right to operate.

We perform routine, daily and monthly maintenance, automatically, before problems surmount to a sick or dead computer. Using enterprise-grade automation, following industry best practices, we ensure that everything is in top health-- operating perfectly to specifications when you sit down at your workstation every day. Ask your IT Company if they perform nightly maintenance on your computers. Ask exactly what maintenance they perform-- or if they don't they find it necessary, ask why not. The fact remains that computers, networks, hardware and software needs more preventative and proactive maintenance than cars.
