As the electronic security industry gets
more complex, IT issues get more complex too.
How is your IT staff going to handle these new issues? Is there a gap
between the skill level of your company’s IT staff and where the skill level
should be? A recent finding, courtesy
of CompTIA, a non-profit IT trade association, says there is.
So what’s the big deal?
The big deal is that as the electronic security industry gets into more complex
IT solutions, more training is required to keep up. Only 56% of the respondents in the CompTIA
survey of 500 U.S. businesses and IT managers said the skills of their IT staff
were "moderately close” to where they need to be.
The trend toward cloud computing, using
mobile devices and continuous connectivity for monitoring purposes all bring IT
into play. The technology keeps changing, which means your people need to
constantly update their skills through quality training. It is the only way to keep your IT
professionals on top of your company’s needs.
In the same way, your installation
technicians also need quality training. Their knowledge and professionalism on
the job greatly influences the confidence your customers feel and how your
customers perceive your company. The
only way your technicians can remain current is through training.
