You might hear us discuss the benefits of “proactive IT maintenance” all the time, but what does the word “proactive” really mean for technology management? Today, we want to demystify some of the jargon surrounding proactive IT and show you just how great of a value proposition it really is.
Before we can really understand the idea of being proactive, we first need to examine the concept of being reactive.
The state of being reactive, or reacting to some sort of internal or external agent, could be considered the default state of most businesses' IT management and maintenance—before the advent of managed IT solutions, anyway. Businesses would go about their daily business, only reacting or taking action to resolve technology issues when they would occur (which, turns out, is pretty common if you’re not actively taking measures to prevent them in the first place).
Being proactive, on the other hand, is the exact opposite. Instead of waiting around for things to go wrong, you imagine the things that could happen and take preventative measures to ensure that they don’t happen—or, in some cases, ensure that you are ready to handle them if/when they do.
IT is one area of your business where you absolutely need to be proactive, as a handful of unfortunate circumstances at the right time could completely put an end to your operations and your dreams for your business.
