Like many companies, you didn’t have the budget for a full-fledged IT department but you did have some in-house networking knowledge to draw on, so you took what you had and ran with it.
Unfortunately, what works to put a small network together in the beginning can wind up as a tangled mess as your needs grow. Think of it like this. When your network consisted of three machines, Bill in accounting connected them, and it was good. Because Bill was handy like that.
But, when you needed to add a machine, Bill was gone, so Joan from sales was able to figure out Bill’s work and make the proper connections.
Fast forward 10 years and Fred (mailroom), who set up the email system is hiking the Himalayas in search of truth, Brice (accounts receivable), who tied the printer into the network, retired to a coffee plantation in Panama, and Freda (receptionist), who connected the new phones, was recruited by the CIA to design covert communications monitoring systems from a nondescript building deep inside an undisclosed location near a bar where nobody knows her name.
In the meantime, your network, cobbled together by a half-dozen people who never met, has collapsed under the weight of all that chewing gum and baling wire. An IT nightmare is born.
