IT is an indispensable part of modern business operations, as it’s all the more important that you are able to guarantee the continuity of your IT processes and give your employees 24/7 access from anywhere. This is something that you can manage in-house, but you can also opt to outsource at least some of it. In this blog, Arno Diefenbach, Operations Manager at Login Consultants, discusses three reasons for using managed services.
1 Full attention to the core business
You can choose a managed services structure for strategic reasons. Do you feel that workplaces, including the underlying infrastructure, should just be there when they’re needed? Do you consider your IT a bit like water from the tap or electricity from the wall and would prefer to devote your energy to your core business? By choosing a good managed services partner, you can enjoy a flexible IT infrastructure where quality, performance, and availability are guaranteed.
2 Hire in expertise of additional help
If you have your own IT department with a good team of experienced and skilled people, but just need an extra pair of hands or a bit of added expertise in certain areas, then managed services would be a good fit. Imagine that your IT team doesn’t have the expertise to deal with Citrix, but that expertise is something you need. You can opt to outsource that particular area, while your IT department can look after the rest of your IT. These days, when the labour market is pretty tight, this can be a useful solution. In addition, if you need some temporary extra capacity or a little flexibility and speed, managed services can be helpful.
3 24/7 Availability
For certain companies, having an IT environment that is operational 24/7 is important so that users can work day and night without encountering problems or challenges. If you work with an experienced managed services partner, you’ll have 24/7 access to specialist expertise in the IT workplace and you can be confident that your employees will be able to work without interruption at any time of the day (or night).
