Welcome to the Beacon IT Services (BITS) blog. My name is Ryan Bowles, Account Executive for BITS. This blog is intended to be a resource for small/medium sized businesses to help better take control of their IT. You will notice that my title does not include any words like Network, Systems, Engineer, or Administrator (even though we have plenty of people here that do!). Although I do consider myself an IT Professional, my expertise comes from understanding how IT relates to a business and what can be done to ensure that technology is an asset to a business and not a burden. This blog won’t be about speeds, feeds, and technical specs (although we will sprinkle in some technical “how to” blogs by the above mentioned specialists from time to time). Rather, the majority of posts here will be directed towards the small business owners and managers. The goal being to help you better understand technology and how it relates to your business by answering questions that most companies have (or should have) about what to do with their IT. Ever wonder when you should upgrade your PCs? How about determining if you should replace your old server or move to the cloud? What is a firewall and do I need one? These are the types of questions I will be helping to answer. So as we move forward please share this post and continue to check back to catch up on all the Tips, Tricks, and How To’s of small business technology.
