Let’s face it. Managing your IT systems is costly. That’s why increasing numbers of businesses are turning over many IT functions to managed service providers (MSP), including the day-to-day operations of their IT systems. This change frees internal IT staff to put more time in on strategic IT projects, improving efficiency, increasing productivity, and boosting revenues. It also provides peace of mind.
Use of MSPS to provide managed IT services has been relatively low—until now. “As late as last year CompTIA found that only 3-in-10 organizations had any of their IT in the hands of an MSP,” says Carolyn April, senior director, Industry Analysis, at CompTIA. “But more than two-thirds of companies surveyed for CompTIA’s Fourth Annual Trends in Managed Services Study, released Monday, say they have used the services of an outside IT firm within the past 12 months.”
Benefits of Managed IT Services
In the past, cost savings were considered the key benefit from managed services. But those are now being considered table stakes to get in the game. Companies now realize that they can get more from managed IT services—a lot more. Added benefits of managed services include access to professional IT staff, predictable spending, faster response time, tighter vendor management, and improved security and compliance.
“It also important to note that while companies are increasingly relying on outside providers for part of their IT needs, MSPs generally complement rather than replace internal IT ,” writes Thor Olavsrud, senior writer for CIO.com in an article on the site. “Instead, especially in larger companies, bringing an MSP into the mix frees up existing IT staff to focus on more strategic projects.”
Here’s what else you get when you turn to managed IT services:
- Improved budgeting for your IT infrastructure
- Enhanced network security and compliance
- Maintained data availability for critical applications
- Optimized IT staff efficiencies
- Better managed data backup/disaster recovery activities
But to benefit from a managed IT services program, you need to work with the right MSP, one that’s flexible enough to meet your needs—whether you’re a large enterprise, a mid-level organization, or a small business.
What you need is Acrodex.
