As a result, companies are continually trying to reduce costs, and every little bit helps. I came across an article that I hope might be useful for some of you. The Wall Street Journal’s Ben Worthen outlines a number of IT-related opportunities for reducing costs, including replacing outdated equipment and moving some tasks and processes to online-based applications.

“Sometimes the savings are immediate,” he writes. “Sometimes an up-front investment is required. In either case, the right approach can cut costs without damaging a business, and may even improve it.”
