Advances in technology continue to come fast and furious, and more and more companies are taking advantage of them to modernize their business and data systems and gain a competitive edge. We call this digital transformation and it includes new ways of thinking and doing business, as well as new technology.
But just as tech innovation is exploding — and creating more complex business environments — IT budgets are shrinking. Many companies simply don’t have the internal skills or resources to handle the challenges, and struggle to gain control, and leverage the value, of new technology investments. They remain mired in reactive mode when it comes to digital innovation.
However, in today’s unpredictable business landscape, security, uptime, and new capabilities are everything. You have to be bold and proactive to get the best ROI and competitive advantage when it comes to new technology.
The Benefits of Modern Managed Services
This is where modern managed services comes in. Having evolved from the break-fix model of old, a managed services partner (MSP) is now often considered a critical and cost-effective extension of a company’s IT team. That’s because the right partner offers:
- Skilled and trained professionals and access to an extensive global resource network that operates 24/7
- Proactive monitoring and system management
- Advanced problem-solving, planning and strategy, team training, knowledge transfer, and more
- Flexible, scalable, custom support designed specifically for the unique needs — and budget — of your business
With an MSP responsible for cloud migration and storage, server maintenance, network monitoring and security, and infrastructure management, you can stay ahead of the technology curve, rest assured your system is secure and compliant, and that you are getting the most value you can from your technology investments. And, the IT team is free to focus on higher-priority items that help users do their jobs better and help your company grow faster.
Do You Have an IT Sustainment Strategy?
When it comes to your digital transformation initiatives, it’s even more important to be prepared and think about an IT sustainment strategy early in the buying and planning process. Whether you are going to use in-house support, an MSP, or a hybrid approach, you don’t want it to be an afterthought. Addressing your plan upfront makes for a smoother go-live, and transition optimizes system performance and minimizes budget surprises.
