Concentrate on your business!
In today’s service economy, you can pay third parties to do everything, from drive to shop, for you. It’s only natural that many organizations are handing over most of their auxiliary functions to third-party managed service providers (MSPs).
This is more evident in the technology world—MSPs can provide everything, including the technology, professional services, and field functions. They also operate the technology according to your business needs. Most MSPs have staff members who understand the technology as applicable to your business. They will be able to provide you with trustworthy, strategic advice.
Growth of Managed Services
It’s no wonder that managed services are one of the fastest growing segments in the technology industry. MSPs offer services in information, communication and collaboration, mobility, IT infrastructure and data center management, security, networks, etc.
According to the Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA), the standard managed network services offered by service providers rose to 68 percent by the first half of 2018 from 43 percent in 2016. In 2017, 57% of IT leaders were planning to partner with MSPs because of the wide range of services they offered.
Adoption of Managed Network Services
The latest technological breakthroughs in the IT industry have made systems and network demands more connected and complex, which makes buying the latest equipment and managing them in-house quite expensive. Along with this, shrinking product lifecycles and intensifying competition also make engaging managed network service providers a wise decision.
Popularity of Managed Network Services
According to the market research firm Technavio, the global managed network service market is expected to accelerate at a CAGR of close to 5% through 2022. The reasons for this are many.
Latest technology: MSPs use the latest technologies and equipment, and provide strategic advice to keep your business moving forward. They even manage your systems remotely via managed services platforms.
Proactive approach: Managed network services, unlike project-based services, are usually based on year-round contracts. Rather than rushing in when something breaks down, providers help ensure stable networks and reliable performance.
Cost control: MSPs offer customized solutions and set them up. Since the costs are spread over the contract period and you may need to pay only for what you use, they will not affect your bottom line.
Speed and efficiency: Not only do MSPs help you use complex, dynamic networks, but all your IT operations become more efficient and reliable. They help you to free up resources used on non-strategic items and focus more on your core business.
Ongoing management and support: As MSPs handle operations, you will have fewer problems to deal with, and can have constant support when you do face any issue.
Managed risk and improved security: Good managed network service providers are up to date on industry knowledge. They are able to counter adverse effects resulting from new regulations, changing economic conditions, rapid advances in technology, market fluctuations, etc.
They install a secure firewall, conduct regular security audits, and implement rigorous security measures, preventing viruses, malware, and other such threats. They also back up all your data and IT resources so that even in times of a natural calamity, your business is minimally affected.
Scalability: You can easily add more branches as MSPs can muster enough resources to get your business up and running, anywhere you need it.
Future of Managed Network Services
As your business grows, it will have more endpoints, which means you might need to automate your network for ease of use and efficiency. Moreover, as you incorporate mobility or move your business to the cloud, the number of connections will increase and you will need better visibility.
Managed network service providers can help manage all of this and provide you with a cohesive, stable and secure network. In short, managed network services are extremely valuable and something worth considering!
