When it’s time to invest in a new solution, you might really be excited, but you ultimately might be expecting too much of it right out of the box. Sometimes our expectations for tech solutions are too high, and so we’re going to take a look at the common tech misconceptions that people often have about technology.
The Latest Is the Greatest
When a new piece of technology comes out, people stand in line waiting to purchase it, like Apple products. While the new products are often improved from past ones, it isn’t always necessarily true that new + better. Brand new products may have trouble connecting to the programs you use, and their bugs might not be hammered out yet. Instead of always jumping at the new products, you should ask whether they fit your organization’s needs.
My Staff Knows How to Use Technology
People often assume that everyone will be able to use the newest technology. Some people can pick up on how to use technology, but others might be a little bit more technologically challenged than you realize. If you’re getting new tech, you should train your employees accordingly.
It Can’t Happen to Me
When you see stories about hacking, you never think those things can happen to you or your team. When you equip new technology, you should make sure it is as secure as possible.
