Whether reviewing existing IT systems and processes, or planning for expansion, get the expertise you need from Akita, as part of an IT audit.
IT audits can help you take back control of your setup, and help you understand where your IT infrastructure or processes are letting you down.
Akita has over 20 years’ of business IT experience with organisations of all size. So we know how to get systems running well. And with over 30 specialist engineers and consultants on hand, plus a string of accreditations, we have the expertise to meet your requirements for IT audits.
We can focus on your hardware, software or networks, or provide an overview of all of these areas. Alternatively, we can examine internal IT policies, such as user permissions and processes, to identify how your IT setup could be improved. We can also look at how well your IT systems and processes comply with GDPR.
We can also combine an IT Audit with our Security Audit service, providing you with a holistic view both of your IT setup and how users engage with it.
Our IT Audits Process
While our process for IT audits will differ depending on your requirements, below is a guide to our approach and benefits:
- Initial consultancy to gain an understanding of your organisation, its goals and how you use your current IT setup. This can include interviews with key stakeholders within your organisation to ensure that agendas are aligned.
- Performance of an IT audit to document your computer systems, IT network infrastructure and/or software licenses held. Areas will be viewed in line with organisational aims, best practice guidelines and IT healthcare expertise.
- We’ll then report on our findings. This can include a full register of IT hardware and software, along with practical information about renewals or upgrades required. We’ll then summarise our advice for future development paths. This includes details of specific systems or hardware that should be investigated for improvements.
- Once we’ve explained our findings, we can assist you with improvements. Should you wish, we can undertake the implementation for you. Whether it’s the configuration of systems or the sourcing of new hardware and software, we’ll help you get your IT setup to where it needs to be.
Akita’s audits can assist your organisation in saving money.
We can conduct IT audits as a one-off service, assisting with specific company activities such as mergers and acquisitions. Alternatively, we can provide an ongoing auditing service. Not only can this improve IT systems, but it provides independent verification that you’re getting value for money from your IT.
Our IT audits take place to fit around your schedule, ensuring minimum disruption to your users.
