“Managed Services” is the latest buzzword floating around the Information Technology (IT) domain. The IT support space finds itself smack in the middle of this dynamic. If you find yourself working in the domain, chances are you have come across at least one of these terms in the past year:
- Managed Services
- Managed IT Solutions
- Managed Service Provider
So, what is all the fuss about? Well, Managed IT Services, when deployed from a trusted source, provide a single point of service, lower costs and optimize productivity to offer you peace of mind.
It becomes more important for you to be aware of Managed Services as, more than likely, you’re going to need it if you aren’t using it already. Here’s a quick glance at what Managed IT Solutions are before delving into how to use it and get the most out of your business.
What is Managed Services?
In simple terms, Managed IT Solutions, or Managed Services, allow a business to hand over its IT operations by having a service provider take care of everything. This off-premise service provider is also known as a Managed Services Provider (MSP).
Why Managed Services?
As more and more enterprises jump on the Managed IT Services bandwagon, it's easy to gauge that the benefits of managed services are manifold. Traditionally, IT related machine or network maintenance was done using only the “break-fix” methodology. This meant that when something broke, the business called a maintenance expert, and they responded to, hopefully, fix the problem.
By handing IT operations over to a reliable MSP, the provider is responsible for managing, monitoring or resolving problems for selected IT systems and functions on your behalf. This allows you to focus on your core business processes rather than being hindered by IT issues.
Why Should You Care About Managed IT Services?
Well-established and expanding enterprises need superior technology to compete effectively in the market. However, maintaining a large IT resource on premise to keep up with an increasingly complex IT environment is not an easy task for small businesses. They depend on a functional IT infrastructure that runs without interruptions and adjusts to their often tight budgets.
MSPs offer security, alerts, patch management and data backup along with a series of options for client devices like servers, desktops, storage systems, notebooks, networks and individual applications.
