Step 1: Assess your dependency

If you're starting a business, it should be safe to assume you're knowledgeable about it and about what's needed in terms of technology to efficiently run it. Use this knowledge to assess what types of equipment you use, as well as how much you rely on such equipment.

There's no hard and fast rule regarding what percentage of your business's budget should be spent on technology; this is something you must determine based on how important it is to your business. Here are some basic questions to ask yourself:

What pieces of equipment does each employee in my office need (phone, PC, etc.)?

What pieces of equipment can employees share (printer, fax, copy machine, etc.)?

What pieces of mobile equipment are needed (phone, palmtop computer, pager, etc.)?

How imperative is it to get the latest models and most sophisticated versions of equipment?

Do I have internal technical support, or do I need to make sure I can get it elsewhere?
