The end of the year is fast approaching, leaving many IT professionals with the question of what to do with the remainder of their IT budgets. You want to be careful that you don’t spend it wastefully, but you also don’t want to leave a surplus.

Here are several suggestions of what you could spend the remainder of your IT budget on and make a huge impact on your business.

  1. Cloud, cloud, cloud – Take the leftover money and do something nice for you cloud solutions. This can include purchasing more storage, increasing your bandwidth, or extending some of the functionalities that you’ve been wanting, but didn’t want to spend extra for.
  2. Upgrade your backup solution – Just because you have a backup solution doesn’t mean it is enough to protect your business when disaster strikes. Expand your backup so you have all the space and bandwidth you could ever possibly need.
  3. Invest in new cables – Walk into your server room and look around at the quality of your cabling. If you see any that look like they’re in bad shape, buy some brand-spanking-new patch cables to replace the bad ones.
