IT: The backbone of successful business

IT Charts and Graphs

When I went to Notre Dame University to pursue graduate studies in the mid 1980’s, I went out and made a huge purchase…a Kaypro CPM computer. It was magnificent at the time. It folded up like a medium size suitcase and had two 5.25″ floppy drives. I managed to get through all of my graduate studies with that system. It was however, not much more than a glorified typewriter with a little bit of storage. More importantly it was the beginning of a whole new world of IT that would serve the intellectual, business, and personal needs of society.

Today IT is the backbone of everything we do. We arrive at work in the morning and we turn on our computers (or at least we seat ourselves in front of a screen or two or three!) We go home at night fire up our tablet, or laptop or smart TV. Throughout the day, when we are not in front of our principal systems, we use the smart phone to bridge. If you are young enough….you may only use a smart phone for all of your information or communications.

The real failure in IT is convenient integration. My brother called the other day because he was changing to an IPhone from an older model Blackberry and his carrier said his contacts (hundreds) were not transferrable. Well our IT folks sorted that out for him quickly.

Often times, I have to do work at home for our clients on an emergency basis. It’s not always easy to connect all the dots and do what I do in the office at home. I rely on our IT department to help me with that integration.

TDG began its journey as a company in graphics and web design and development. We quickly realized that our clients needed more integration in their entire IT spectrum if our web work was to be ultimately successful. So we built the IT department at TDG to assist people with the evolution of technology and with a seamless integration into their work and life styles.

Hardware, software, networks, the cloud…and more….TDG IT is the place where you can get help. The better your systems and the better they are integrated into your style of business and life, the more productive and successful you will be in the world of work.

If you want to produce in your business, let us help you do so. Technology matched to your needs, integrated with your style of business and life….will make all the difference in the world.

When sometime in the 1980s I said I wanted to keep my medical records on computer a sales lady left one like your first on trial at the office. With no instruction I couldn't make it do what I wanted and gave up in disgust and may never have tried again. When I did try again in 1990 l had a little more success with DOS 4, for which there was lots of instructional information, and have never looked back. It's been an exciting time. I'm no longer in practice and never did digitalize my records, but have discovered in retirement a love for writing essays, expressing my thoughts, which I would never have done without a computer. Thanks for this newsletter and for your editorship of the Niagara Anglican, which got me started.
