'Tis the Season… To Make Your IT Budget

Anne Bisagno


It's Q4, and you know what that means: budgeting season is upon us. If you're stuck staring at a blank spreadsheet, consider these ten IT budgeting recommendations from tech journalist Jack Wallen:


  • Extra licensing fees - Be ready for new hires as soon as you onboard them.
  • Emergency hardware replacement - Even the best-maintained equipment fails sometimes.
  • Mobile technology - It's only becoming more important.
  • Upgrades - Prevent security holes and ensure you have all the functionality you need.
  • IT staffing/support - When your business grows, your infrastructure has to keep up.
  • Cloud services - More and more key services are migrating to the cloud.
  • Software - Make sure you have what you need to boost productivity and security.
  • Training - It can be the difference between having a security breach or preventing one.
  • Data pipe - Any business that relies on Internet connectivity needs to ensure it has enough bandwidth — and a secondary connection if the first one fails.
  • Backup solution - If disaster strikes, you need to be able to recover your applications and data somehow.
