Managed Service Providers: What to Look for, What to Expect

managed service providers

Managed service providers (MSPs) provide a wide range of IT solutions to businesses, including network, application, infrastructure, and security services. Choose an MSP with the right fit to achieve your goals and establish a long-term relationship built on trust rather than one-time service transactions. A knowledgeable MSP can help you scale your IT infrastructure to increase production, data security, and reliability while creating "space" for your IT teams to focus on strategic initiatives.

Let's take a look at what companies should look for and what they should expect when choosing a managed service provider.

Why Use a Managed Service Provider

Managed Service Providers deliver enterprise-level solutions for businesses looking for IT "as a service" models. Organizations should look for MSPs familiar with both the functional and technical aspects of their specific business requirements. Because anyone can call themselves a managed service provider, it's critical to establish whether the MSP has the necessary experience to deliver what your organization requires.

Choosing the right MSP can make all the difference when it comes to creating positive business outcomes.

Choosing the Right Managed Service Provider

MSPs can be the tool used to help companies achieve innovative and operational excellence. The right MSP will help your organization deliver precision services while developing a strategic roadmap to help guide business outcomes. Gartner has reported that 41% of businesses will increase their reliance on MSPs for “digital business infrastructure.”

Companies that need additional support with cyber security, IT infrastructure performance, IT asset management, or sophisticated IT implementations should contact a reputable MSP. The following are some of the benefits of employing an MSP:

  • Take over day-to-day tasks, so your team can focus on strategic initiatives
  • Develop a meaningful partnership to help your organization scale IT initiatives
  • Create a strategic roadmap to help implement your ongoing IT projects

Businesses can benefit from the dedicated technical expertise and industry-leading solutions of MSPs that would be too costly to support in-house. MSPs can deliver and scale IT services using a budget-friendly OpEx model. These services can allow organizations a higher degree of flexibility and control over their financial capabilities and resources.
