Companies in 2016 are going towards Managed IT Services through local or national managed service providers to oversee specific segments of a company’s IT functions, give the company’s internal IT department the time to work on critical IT projects.
Factually MSPs (managed service providers) have been in part of the IT industry for more than 10 years, however the percentage of companies signing on for a services package is small. Recent surveys show that only 3 out of 10 companies allow any IT at all to be overseen by an MSP. Ironically close to 70% of companies have used the services of an outside IT company over the past 12 months.
The Managed IT Services Revolution
As companies learn more about IT and how hard it is to manage, they are using IT companies to oversee several specific IT components. Those components include network monitoring, recovery, storage backup, CRM (customer relationship management) and most importantly email hosting.
Best MSPs Companies Expanded Service Levels
In certain arenas companies are beginning to offer MSPs that include high-end application monitoring, business intelligence (BI) and data analytics. However most MSPs are sticking with offering the standard services covering managing network infrastructure and standard software infrastructure.
MSPs are a Company’s Business Partner
Bear in mind, companies more and more are turning to outside IT service provider to solve near term IT problems, but what they are not realizing is that a MSP will enhance its IT department, not to eliminate it. Companies need to understand this fact.
