The work-from-home revolution in 2020 has many IT leaders rethinking their investment strategy. While businesses anticipate spending more on cloud and managed services and less on hardware in 2021, there is little question that budgets will be under scrutiny [Source].
Here’s how to get your tech budget right in 2021:
- Invest the time for a line-item review of your 2020 spend.
- Identify which investments are residual support for the old way of doing things. Nix them.
- Identify which investments are required to take you where you want to be in 2021. Prioritize them.
This exercise is unlikely to be a zero-sum game — you may need to invest more than you nix — but when you take the time to do it right, your business thrives.
