Burlington, MA (Jan 31st, 2006) - DAMICON, an information technology services company, today announced that its popular IT scorecards have been updated. The scorecards are available through the company's website. Each one asks a series of twenty questions with simple yes or no answers. The answers result in scores that provide a quick assessment of how effectively a company uses various aspects of information technology in its business operations.
The four updated scorecards include:
Non-Stop Scorecard - provides insight into business continuity preparedness in managing lost data, damaged systems, network outages and other emergency situations;
Network Security Scorecard - provides a simple, yet fairly complete, overview of a firm's network infrastructure security and intellectual property protection;
Information Technology Scorecard - takes a broad view of IT operations and how effectively an organization employs its existing technology assets;
Open-Source Scorecard - helps determine how effectively a company is using, or at least considering the use of, open-source software.
According to Vin D'Amico, President of DAMICON, "Most companies spend a lot of time trying to be better than the competition. But being better doesn't necesarily mean doing things differently. In most cases, being better simply means making fewer mistakes. Our scorecards focus attention on what really matters and help companies avoid the most common mistakes in using information technology."
Each scorecard can be filled in within 10 minutes. There are instructions for tabulating the scores and interpreting the results.
