What are Managed Services and why do you need them?

The need to be connected anytime, anywhere has created paradigm shifts in the way we conduct business. Today’s mobile world has profoundly impacted us all. As a result, these changes have altered the way we support our endeavours with technology. Consequently, every organisation needs some form of IT Managed Services to maintain productivity and reduce risk.

More and more businesses are adopting cloud computing, however this means they must integrate an increasingly distributed workforce and develop strategies for remote device management, such as personal device (BYOD) policies. Therefore, they are increasingly opting to outsource their application, security, and networking needs.

This dynamic has created demand for a new kind of Information Technology support, Managed Services. Above all, IT Managed Service Providers (MSP’s) support businesses with turnkey IT solutions delivered through a pay-as-you-go model.

For example, immediate benefits can be gained by outsourcing your IT services:

  • A single monthly invoice for all IT-related expenses
  • Reduced need for capital expenditure or asset management
  • Budget predictability; no sudden or unexpected costs
  • Systems are constantly monitored and managed
  • Emergency break-fix crises are avoided
  • No headaches and lost productivity due to breakdowns
  • Improved security and business continuity
  • Reduced risk associated with compliance and other issues
  • Lower total cost of ownership
  • Less time lost managing IT systems and more time to concentrate on your core business
