Although technology is at the heart of modern business operations, many organisations still view it as a necessary evil rather than an opportunity to drive growth and innovation. This mindset often leads to a reactive approach to IT, where technology is only addressed when it breaks down or becomes outdated. This approach not only hinders progress but can also be costly and time-consuming.
Instead, try a different approach — technology alignment that focuses on aligning your technology with your business goals to drive outcomes that matter. Technology alignment is a key element of our Netcare Technology Success™ Process, it provides the biggest benefits to our clients and is what really differentiates Netcare from our peers.
In this blog post, we’ll bust some of the most common myths about technology alignment and show why it is a crucial aspect of modern business operations. Keep reading if you’re ready to take your technology game to the next level.
Common technology alignment misconceptions debunked
Here are the four most common technology alignment myths and the truth behind them.
Myth #1: Our business won’t benefit from technology alignment
Truth: Many organisations think technology alignment only benefits large enterprises, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Whether you’re a small startup, an established company or somewhere in between, technology alignment offers a proactive approach to addressing your IT needs, ultimately increasing productivity.
We can help you align your technology with your business goals, so you can expect a more efficient and streamlined IT environment that helps you reach your goals faster. This approach ensures that your technology doesn’t cause more problems than it solves.
Myth #2: We only pay you to fix our technology when it breaks
Truth: Technology alignment goes beyond fixing technology when it breaks. With technology alignment, you can rely on your IT services provider to proactively address technology issues, freeing up your time to focus on other business goals, ultimately resulting in a healthier bottom line.

Myth #3: We have too many support tickets to worry about a new process
Truth: The technology alignment process is specifically designed to reduce the number of support tickets you submit. With fewer tickets causing downtime, you can focus on meeting your business goals and driving your business forward with minimal interruptions.
Our technology alignment manager can prioritize the most common issues by analyzing ticket trends and implementing solutions that substantially decrease support tickets. This approach helps you address the root causes of your technical issues rather than simply putting a band-aid on the problem.
Myth #4: I don’t have the time to meet with someone to talk about tech all day
Truth: While your time is certainly valuable, discussing the benefits and advantages of technology alignment with an IT services provider will be beneficial for your business outcomes in the long run. Embracing technology alignment can help you save time and focus on areas of your business that need attention the most.
