A thorough evaluation of the IT infrastructure should be conducted before working with any technology partner. The right questions are asked to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the company in terms of its technological capabilities. Does the company have all of the required software and hardware available? Do the components of your entire infrastructure match the goals you have for the business?

The ideal partner for SMEs is one who can offer reliable and scalable IT solutions to solve the issues that were identified during the assessment phase. For example, it could provide professional services to supplement in-house IT or simply offer consultation. Some IT companies offer to collaborate on projects with clients and share their expertise about specific IT tasks such as strategic planning, backup management, or setting up a network. These options suit small businesses who do not typically have the funds to spend on IT.

Enlisting technology services is ultimately about empowering an SME to access specialized knowledge, expertise and tools that it may be unable to afford. The SME will be able to use the technology to develop better products and deliver services to their market.
