As we get closer to 2024, we all know how important technology is to our business operations. But, as we use more technology, the costs can start to add up. As a leader in your organization, finding smart ways to handle these growing tech expenses is a must.

What is happening now?

Research by Deloitte shows that companies will spend much more on healthcare IT in 2024. Spiceworks had 68% of their surveyed businesses report that they will spend more on technology in 2024, and that the average increase in budget is 6% over 2023. The exciting part about budgeting more? This should mean better service, client and employee experiences, staying competitive, and achieving more profitability. And also doing so through the use of things like AI and Big Data. The challenging part? Figuring out how to pay for all of it without breaking the bank.

The challenge that we all face

As tech costs go up, companies are facing a few big problems. Unexpected costs can pop up, managing deals with many different vendors can get confusing, and ensuring you get value for your money is tough. There are server hardware replacements that could see an increase in cost of over 25% in 2024, which has companies looking at hybrid or a full migration to virtual severs in the cloud now rather than waiting until 2025 or beyond. On top of that, keeping client and company data safe is a big responsibility.
