Information is one of your biggest business assets. You need an information technology partner who understands that.

You need someone who believes information technology systems are more than just a bundle of wires and blinking lights: they're the heart and soul of your business.

That doesn't mean they can't be a hassle, though. It can be daunting and frustrating to worry about whether your systems are secure, efficient, and effective when you're busy attending to all the other needs of your small or mid-sized organization.

That's where we come in. While you're busy running your business, we take care of tech support and so much more -- offering strategic advice, technological expertise, and the kind of insight and partnership you can only get from a trusted advisor.

    The first half of 2010 has been one for the record books in many parts of the United States. Tornadoes and floods have devastated larges areas, causing deaths, property damage, and endangering IT operations and the security of data. For instance, in early May, the U.S. Navy Personnel Command offices in Millington, Tenn., were covered in several feet of water, putting IT operations out of business and stopping promotions and personnel transfers across the Navy for days.

    After 30 years in corporate IT, Plainview’s Larry Schweitzer was ready for something different and ready to be his own boss.

    He achieved half of his objectives.
    At 55, Schweitzer was interested in investing in a franchise and thought something in the food business might be a good fit. Browsing at a franchise show on the Island last winter, he checked out a couple of fast food opportunities, but ultimately kept walking.

    This interview is part of ITworld's regular "How I Got Here" series which focuses on the career path of successful IT professionals. Paul Okura has successfully navigated two cultures throughout his longcareer in finance, moving deftly between Japan and the United States. 

    Starting out with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from NYU, Paul didn't exactly have the traditional background to become a banker, but the presentation skills he learned while studying film and television in school contributed to his success in finance.

    When IT engineer Susan Bateman worked as a project manager for IBM, she noticed that, during conference calls, a member of her technical team from IBM India always called her "Sir."

    After the third time it happened, she asked, "Last summer when you worked with me in Boulder, did you think I was a man?" He answered "Oh, no, Susan! It's just that I've never had a lady boss before."

    Hotel Wi-Fi is counterintuitive: Low-budget spots tend to offer it free of charge, while luxury resorts charge an arm and a leg. But that may soon change as customers start demanding free wireless as a basic human right.

    In 2010, travelers have come to expect a few complimentary amenities when they check into their rooms. And as travelers look to stay connected on the road, reliable high-speed Internet access is increasingly on the short list of hotel necessities - especially wireless access, or Wi-Fi.

Here's her take on the experience.

    TECH MAKEOVER: CMIT Solutions of Denver is offering a custom technology makeover, worth up to $55,200, to one lucky small business.

    "I've been wanting to do this for a couple of years, because I've seen the need in the small business market to make something available like this," says Debi Bush, chief marketing officer. "Businesses that even are doing well may not want to upgrade all kinds of technology because of the cash-flow issue."

We’ve got a favorite saying here at CMIT Solutions: “Email is the lifeblood of business.” Why? Well, after an early period spent toiling in the technological shadows as an intra-office messaging tool, email has become the communication backbone of companies small and large. Very little gets done without it — but very little can get done if your inbox becomes a...

Some people look at a new work computer as a blessing to be embraced. Some look at it as a challenge to be dreaded. But whether you’re a business owner buying a new desktop, or an employee procuring a new laptop, think of your fresh machine as just that — the opportunity for a fresh start.

"For our [clinical research facility], it was better to have a preventive plan in place so that if something did break, we would be ahead of it, and it wouldn’t break instead of waiting for something to happen and then fix it. So, now CMIT is monitoring everything, and we haven’t had any issues so they can catch the problem before it even happens. "
"CMIT is all about peace of mind, and literally, it doesn't cost you anything because you are saving the money on me working on the computer when I'm losing business. In today's economy, you don't want to be late sending bills out, you've got to be out there because if you start falling behind you're going to see the amount of income drop dramatically. So, Greg and CMIT make us look more...
"Whereas our systems were originally only getting backed up on a monthly basis, CMIT was able to come in and now they are automatically backed up to the server. We had a center in the DFW area that did lose everything. They made a phone call to CMIT, and CMIT was able to restore their data within a couple of hours. We’re monitored on a 24/7 basis, so even if there was something that were to...
"The way CMIT does business is just much more suitable for our type of business environment. We have deadlines and critical schedules to meet, and we need to be moving forward at all times. CMIT provides data on a monthly basis, which allows us to look at trends and be proactive with our decisions and our methods for improving our system. Every time my system improves, that means my efficiency...
"CMIT dealt with my local backup needs so that if I just need to get one specific piece of information, they can actually do it remotely from their office and get my people back and going. If I do have a catastrophic disaster that takes my entire building, I have laptops and everything else that I can have up immediately. I can use my web-based information storage and be back up and running...
"We pride ourselves that we are the company that gives instant customer service. We were getting to a point where it was extremely difficult, and we didn't want to lose our customer base. We wanted to also expand. I said, 'I need somebody to do something to allow us to be the company that we started out to be and to continue and to grow.' CMIT has helped us to do just that.   "
"Since partnering with CMIT, I can now not worry about whether or not my computers are working. I've got backups, monitoring, I can get reports, and I know where I'm having risks and threats. I now can rely on my IT people (CMIT) to take care of my IT problems and to keep that IT system up and running in an appropriate manner. That is something before I couldn't rely on. I now have a system!...
"We didn’t initiate offsite backups in the beginning, but with the start of the hurricane season we said, 'OK guys, we now have this wonderful system, but it's not really complete yet.' We're now able to back up our data, it's safely transported and stored offsite, and it’s all HIPAA compliant. And the NAS device can actually work as our server so we can continue to use our systems and do...
"With other IT service providers, we felt that we only got assistance when we requested it, and we normally came up with any ideas for improvements on our system rather than them. I was not impressed with the service, the communication or the end product at that point. Our experience has really set CMIT and Sue and John who run the show for them here apart from the others. They are more...
"We use large aerial imagery that can sometimes be 30 or 40 GB in size. There would be times that I would wait 30 seconds to a minute and a half for an image to appear. CMIT Solutions helped us rehabilitate the computers on hand, put in a network infrastructure, and put in faster switches. Now, it can be instantaneous to 15 seconds for a map to load. I kind of feel like I'm spoiled!   "
