What are my initial IT requirements?

Sunday, 29 August 2010 | By Patrick Stafford

As a start-up, your IT requirements will vary depending on your type of business and what it offers.

 

As a minimum requirement, you’ll need to identify a hosting company to host your website, you will likely need a computer for each staff member and a phone system set up.

 

For more complicated, web-based businesses, you will need more advanced hosting capabilities to make sure your site is always up and running.

 

One of the most important things to keep in mind when first buying IT equipment is that you should only purchase what you require and nothing more. Don’t waste money on extensive servers and computers if you don’t need them. However, don’t skimp – find the best tech you need to do your job, and then upgrade when you have to.
