Plotting your course to greater IT uniformity and predictability


DATE: On-Demand TIME: Available Now

Early on, when a business is growing up, IT can afford to let employees use whatever equipment and software they want to get the job done. Naturally, this hodgepodge of systems becomes increasingly difficult and complicated to support as the company grows.

But growing a business requires more than simply purchasing more equipment or exponentially scaling up current systems. IT needs to find ways to bring greater cost efficiencies to their operations, driving per-user costs down as the company scales up. Otherwise, margins will remain the same, with greater profitability an elusive dream. The challenge is twofold: IT must decrease the company’s bottom line while increasing its topline.

In this webinar, RingCentral VP of IT and Business Services, Jeff Smits, will discuss the long- and short-term value of a strategy built around system uniformity and predictability. In this session, you will learn:

  • Benefits of a global role-based provisioning strategy
  • Philosophy for safeguarding the user and company from threats
  • Means of achieving greater cost leverage throughout product and systems implementation life cycles
  • Getting started and implementing the principle of least privilege
  • Benefits of APIs and middleware
