It is always desirable to have the most current hardware and software available. However, the economics of the state does not normally provide enough resources to meet this objective. Therefore, SCC strives to maintain hardware and software at a level that meets users’ needs.
Because most employees require access to computers to effectively carry out their duties, it is essential that equipment/software being purchased be of high quality and near cutting edge to ensure it has a long and useful life. All new hardware and software must undergo evaluation before installation. To ensure that new equipment/software is used effectively, replacement must be coupled with training. Training must be an integral part of all hardware and software replacement in order to recoup the cost through effective usage.
