IT technology and the digital eco-system has come a long way since the days of break/fix IT. The reality is that most internal IT organizations aren’t equipped to keep up with the pace of innovation and the constant change in technology. As a result, many businesses find their IT departments to be reactive rather than proactive, and that their systems struggle to keep up with the demands of their business.
Managed services have seen significant adoption in recent years and those increases can be attributed, in large part, to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). But even large enterprises continue widely to embrace the model. For many it is about focusing on their business’ core competencies while gaining access to the latest technology in order to maintain a competitive edge in their respective markets. For others, they are migrating to the managed services model to sustain their continued growth even though they often lack the IT budget to meet those goals internally. The good news is that managed services enables SMBs to play at the same level as middle market and enterprise level organizations, without overextending themselves — and for enterprises it lets them concentrate their resources on strategic work while offloading non-strategic operations.
If you have previously dismissed the idea of utilizing a third-party provider or consider outsourcing part of the IT function to an “as a Service” offering because you think your current IT structure is fine or because of concerns about cost, now is the time to reconsider.
There are real business benefits to investing in managed services.
1. Focus on Core Objectives
2. Get the Expertise You Need
3. Keep Costs Low
4. Scale up or Down as Needed
5. Receive Support Whenever You Need It
6. Avoid Expensive Downtime

Today’s digital eco-systems are now at the core of virtually all businesses. Any loss or major disruption to those systems can have a devastating effect on your business. Protecting your business and understanding the risks your digital eco-system faces daily is now a top 3 priority of most businesses. If you are not investing in proactive, preventative risk management and mitigation strategies you are putting your business in jeopardy. For many businesses, the consequences of being impacted by a negative event, a major business disruption due to failures or cyber threats to your digital eco-system can be crippling or even result in full business failure.
These are today’s reality and its not just cybersecurity threats. Poor operating performance, data corruption, data loss, infrastructure failures, and many other events can have devastating consequences to your business if you are not prepared.
