Technology Assessment

Perhaps you have heard comments from users in your computing environment like “This computer is so slow” or “The internet takes forever to load a page.” Maybe you are interested in looking at options for backing up data, managing what users are able to do, and not do on computers? Maybe you’re interested in setting up a secure wireless network? Many times, there can even be technical issues under the surface that you might not even be aware of, resulting in poor performance. Regardless of the situation, the South Dakota Broadband Technology Planning Team would like to extend an open invitation to help.

The first step is to perform a Technology Assessment. The Technology Assessment process involves three phases:

      1.   To give a detailed description of what your current infrastructure consists of.

      2.   To evaluate the infrastructure and determine its strengths and weaknesses with respects to current hardware, daily practices and cyber security.

      3.   To work with you in developing a plan to implement any changes or improvements, and assisting in the implementation.

As an example, a PDF of a sample CAI Technology Assessment is located below (Adobe Reader required):

The initial Technology Assessment is done on-site, at your facility, and typically takes about ½ to 1 day, depending on the size of your environment.

The South Dakota Broadband Technology Planning Team can also be utilized as a resource for ongoing technology consultation, and can even help with your current infrastructure in most cases. As part of the South Dakota Broadband Initiative, this is all available at no charge to you.
