I bet you can’t name the amount of network switches at your office. How many licenses of Office do you have? Do you know if your router warranty has lapsed?
Most business owners don’t ask these questions very often, but these issues can often have a marked effect on the way your business functions. Even if you can’t remember any of it, you should have this information documented.
Not only will documenting your whole IT infrastructure save you a lot of time and frustration when you need questions answered quickly, it can help with insurance, and it can help you avoid spending money on technology that you already have.
You are going to alter the information depending on which device you are inventorying, but here are some basics you will definitely want to keep on hand:
It may seem to be a little bit of overkill for a router or a network switch, but we promise you the little bit of effort it takes to document changes in your IT will pay dividends down the road.
