It sounds obvious, doesn’t it? That an IT specialist or IT business should offer sound advice. However, unfortunately, it doesn’t always happen. Even when it does happen, the value of the advice wears off quicker than expected due to the inexperience or insight from the ‘IT’ person who dispensed the advice in the first place. Once you reach this point, its a can of worms, you are hungry, and the advisor can’t recall the advice given or apologizes – none of it makes the worms taste any better.
Bad advice in IT can have a devastating impact on any business, it can lead your business on a one-way road to nowhere, once you arrive at that place called nowhere its a long, arduous way home. The new trend which has taken off in Australia in the last five years is the offer of free advice, its a promise to listen to your IT problems, recommend some band-aids and then sell you down the river – as you are not exchanging anything for it, the advisor has no accountability. Please beware of the IT consultant or IT business that will dispense it for free; it will cost you later on, far more than paying for sound advice in the first place.
Competent advisers can bridge the gap between your vision of what you want to achieve and implementation of that vision.
