Supporting Time-pressed IT Managers in an Era of Skills Shortages

Supporting Time-pressed IT Managers in an Era of Skills Shortages

  • 04 May 2023

Are you an IT manager that helps deliver digital innovation, growth and sustainability within your organisation?

The disruption caused by the global health crisis forced companies across all industries to re-imagine the way they do business. Many fast-tracked their digitisation plans – on average, the share of digital or digitally enabled products in their portfolios has accelerated by seven years in just a few months. It now falls to IT professionals to spearhead these digital initiatives and ensure business value is realised. Their importance in helping achieve a competitive advantage in the new disruptive landscape is clear. Despite this, IT managers face several significant challenges.

Many employees now work from home – or anywhere – at least some of the time. At the same time, more technology is embedded within the cloud, and supply chains are diffused. This makes it harder to delineate the ‘boundary’ of an organisation and presents a new challenge for all IT leaders. And with this new distributed workforce, the potential threat surface is expanded, meaning the danger posed by cybercriminals has never been greater.

These challenges are compounded by IT managers often feeling overworked and under-resourced. Many times, they are hindered by legacy equipment that doesn’t offer the reliability and performance they need.

This translates into many IT professionals spending much of their time firefighting and taking a reactive approach to problems rather than focusing on areas that add value. And while concentrating on ‘keeping the lights on’, things like digital innovation and sustainability are forced onto the back burner. The global skill shortages in critical areas of IT are exacerbating the problem; shortages are the highest on record, particularly around cybersecurity, big data, and architecture. This makes staff retention and replacement a constant challenge

What tools can IT Managers and organisations use to mitigate these disruptions?

Organisations and particularly IT managers must find ways to navigate these challenges to successfully drive revenue-generating innovation within an organisation. Here at CSW-IT, we’ve had great success helping customers switch to Lenovo TruScale to help overcome many of the hurdles mentioned above. Whether those constraints are budgeting, procurement, managing equipment, or the ongoing skills and staffing shortages – we have found Lenovo TruScale can help organisations navigate each obstacle in their path. 

It gives better control over workloads, enabling IT Managers to deploy state-of-the-art infrastructure that can be called upon to deliver the task at hand. Equipment such as servers is supported from cradle to grave, ensuring it works dependably – as it should when it should. In essence, it takes away the heavy lifting associated with managing IT infrastructure. 

Moreover, Lenovo’s support combined with CSW-IT’s knowledge and real-world experience, would allow you to focus your time and talents on other revenue-generating activities instead of devoting all your time and energy to simply keeping the operation running. This all means IT Managers can actively accelerate an organisation’s digital innovation journey while making the most of the resources at their disposal.
