What are managed services?
Information Technology (IT) has become an undeniably critical component of all businesses, affecting everything from day-to-day operations to a company’s strategic growth. Your business depends on your IT network to be productive and successful. But many companies lack the proper oversight and controls to maintain a stable, secure network.
That’s where a managed services provider comes in. Managed services allow companies to transfer all or some of their IT operations to an independent service provider, or managed services provider, that assumes those responsibilities for them. A good managed services provider will provide high performance, reliable security and 24/7 monitoring of your network, and provide strategic guidance regarding investments in your IT infrastructure.
Who are they for?
Whether your company is large or small, your network connects everything and everyone. Managed services can help you proactively address network risk to avoid costly disruptions to employees, stakeholders and customers.
Benefits of a managed services provider vary depending on the size of your organization, your network and your technology goals. For larger organizations, partnering with a managed services provider is a cost-effective way to increase operational efficiencies and security through better network oversight and monitoring. Smaller organizations may likewise benefit from offloading mission-critical IT functions from their teams and gaining access to valuable technical expertise, especially if they don’t have IT personnel on staff.
The benefits of a managed services provider
The hidden costs of lost time and productivity due to technical problems are the single largest expense of business technology. Therefore, the biggest advantage of partnering with a managed services provider is the ability to control risk within your organization.
