RNC-130505-Up-Tech-Creek-Graphics_CoverArt_5 Small

In Episode # 1 of the Up Tech Creek podcast,  we are going to cover what I call the Disaster Recovery Triangle or… the three things you should do BEFORE YOUR system crashes!

And in the quick tip we are going to look at when to upgrade … any tech device hardware or software… my rule of thumb…

• The Up Tech Creek podcast is all about the technology challenges that businesses are faced with on a daily basis, and hopefully providing you with a proverbial paddle when you need it the most.

• And given that the shows emphasis is on business related tech, sometimes we will be talking about the issues that connect business to tech…

• A lot of times, when I start talking to someone about a “tech issue”, something that’s a real challenge, and we dig deeper, we start to discover that planning, policy, process, etc…. and at times even people lie at the root of the dilemma…

• And that is where the value proposition appears to really hit home for many. I mean tech for tech sake is NOT anyone’s goal … at least not in the universe that I live in…

And when you start talking technology, it’s such a broad topic … it spans the breadth of business itself!

Email issues, virus issues, hardware crashes, smart phones confusion, scanning documents, getting your first server up, backing up your data… maybe your business is growing and you are looking at a new business system…

BUT there is always a business driver behind the tech, communicating with people, and managing documents for a vast array of purposes from regulatory to sales, purchasing and production…


These issues are ones that we all face, whether you are an organization of one – where you are growing your empire as a solo entrepreneur … or a company of many – and in many instances it’s really just a matter of scale.
