If you are reading this, you have likely encountered the tern Information Technology (IT) before. You may associate this industry with cybersecurity, and the physical wiring of a space to ensure the proper function of the wifi and your computer. While those comprise a part of what IT specialists provide clients, that is not the full story. Here is a review of what IT is, and what IT professionals provide to clients- individual and commercial.
According to CompTIA.com, “IT is the use of computer systems or devices to access information… Whether you are storing, retrieving, accessing or manipulating information, IT greatly impacts our everyday lives.” If you are a vendor who employs Square Space to receive payments, you are interacting with IT.
An IT professional implements, supports, maintains, repairs and protects your data and computer system(s). For commercial enterprises, professionals can be part of the installation and maintenance of your company’s systems from the very start. Hiring an IT professional for your business early on allows him or her to understand the building and how best to wire your components for optimal efficiency and maintenance over time. Once they wire your space, they can then go computer-by-computer to ensure your software and hardware are updated and secure. Maintenance contracts then allow your business to operate with a fixed cost for technology repairs whenever you may encounter problems. They will also routinely monitor your systems to ensure that as technology advances, your systems are prepared to handle the latest in security, storage and speed.
Individuals also benefit from consultations with an IT professional. If you get a new computer, want to learn how to safely transfer files or are running into routine technological issues, and IT can walk you through the steps you need. Unlike commercial enterprises, individual IT needs tend to be few-and-far-between. It is always helpful however to gain a secure system, and general understanding of how you can be your own day-to-day IT.

Computer maintenance may seem like something that is best left to the experts. While you should seek advice and have your computer components cleaned by an expert, basic maintenance can be easier than you think. It’s also important; caring for your computer before things get out of hand goes a long way to the life of your computer.
One of the most important elements of care for our computers may seem like the most simple. It’s important not to eat or drink around your computer and to utilize a padded case whenever it is not being utilized. Over time, seemingly small things like crumbs or a bit of water along the edge of the computer on the desk amount to gunk between the keys. Keeping the components clean will help keep your computer running efficiently for as long as it may go.
External drives are a great investment for computer care. Our computers have limited storage and memory capacity, so when there is an abundance of files it starts to break things down. Transitioning older files or completed projects to an external drive will help keep the amount of files you computer has to track to a minimum. This allows it to become more efficient with other processes and ultimately keeps the hard drive from becoming overworked.
Another great way to continually maintain your computer is to allow for software updates. Updates patch holes in the system or bugs that outdated technology may leave behind. Rather than an inefficient necessity, updates should be viewed as part and parcel to the longevity of your system. Updates also allow your system to handle files sent from others whose computers could be on the latest version so you aren’t left out.
Properly shutting down you computer, putting it to sleep and keeping the brightness at an appropriate level for the lighting conditions also makes a difference. It helps maintain battery life and tells your computer when it can recover; rather than leaving it on all the time which ruins efficiency over time. We recommend charging your computer when it is off, rather than in use to help maintain the battery life.

When you hire an IT specialist to monitor and maintain your computer operations, that does not mean this person is tapping into your affairs online. What it entails tends to be the diagnosis of any current malware, installation of a malware monitoring system and regular check-ins to ensure operations continue to run smoothly.
