Interview with Axel Weese, Managing Director, CSO at FNT
Professional IT documentation solutions are standard for larger companies but not widely used by smaller ones. Why do you think this is, and do you see this changing?
Larger companies have historically been better positioned to take advantage of professional IT documentation solutions because of their size and availability of resources. These solutions tend to come with a high price tag, require expertise to operate and maintain, and need a high volume of assets to justify the cost.
Advances in these solutions are a game-changer for smaller businesses, which can now benefit from the increased efficiency and cost optimization that professional IT documentation make possible. Now there are cloud-based and standardized solutions with rich out-of-the-box functionality. These commercial off the shelf tools have a significantly lower cost than previous solutions and do not require specific expertise to use. For these reasons, I believe that smaller companies will adopt professional IT documentation solutions.
