Many companies shift their IT to managed IT services providers who manage various IT services on behalf of the company and are responsible for them.
This process is becoming increasingly common in large companies and organizations because of the many benefits it brings:
The investment costs for the best technology and hardware can be very high. Well-managed service providers keep the best technology possible so customers can take advantage of operator-grade solutions without upfront costs.
With fixed contracts and monthly payment plans, companies can pay for managing their IT without unexpected upgrades or maintenance costs.
Managed service providers have specialized IT skills that go beyond the levels available in the enterprise. Having 24-hour access to these skills can be invaluable and also saves money that would otherwise be invested in training internal staff or hiring specialist freelance technicians.
Managed service providers can provide all of your IT services over one "tight" network. This not only saves money in terms of infrastructure but also brings productivity benefits as employees can access voice and data applications from home or elsewhere.
The ability to centralize all of your servers and applications in a managed data center leads to increased productivity and employee productivity as employees can access data and applications through the central network regardless of time or location.
