Startups face countless challenges while navigating today’s complex and ever-changing business landscape. But IT efficiency can truly make or break a business. Many startups deal with pesky IT problems that cause downtime, security risks, and pose an overall threat to your business’s success. All it takes is a bit of diligence on your end to recognize these common startup problems, and with some effort, you can resolve them and grow your business to its full potential. Without further ado, here are just a few of the most common IT problems startups face as well as how to solve them as efficiently as possible.

Inefficient Data Storage

When it comes to storing valuable company data, you can never be too safe, especially as a startup. It’s understandable to have a limited IT budget when you’re still trying to get your business off the ground, but you’ll have to do your best to find the right balance between budget and IT safety. One in every five corporate employees uses an Office 365 cloud service, but there are plenty of cloud migration strategies that could work in your favor.

IT Inconsistency

Again, it’s understandable for many startups to have some level of inconsistency when it comes to hardware and equipment. Many times, the solution is to keep things consistent by investing in a cloud service that meets budgetary and hardware capacity needs. For example, 74% of large businesses with over 4,000 employees run Office 365 exclusively, but regardless of your business size, it’s best to choose a system that stays relatively consistent and is easy for an employee to understand and collaborate with.

Not Recognizing When You Need Additional Support

Finally, it’s not always easy for startups to understand and recognize when they require additional IT and Office help. But since Office 365 can be installed on up to 15 devices per user, it’s more likely than not that your startup will require some level of assistance getting started. Fortunately, professional IT services can help.

Ultimately, the number of Office 365 enterprise users increased 320% from the third quarter of 2015 to the second quarter of 2016. Understanding how to optimize IT infrastructure and solve common problems is the best way to set your startup on the path to success.
