Every day IT teams are being asked to do more with less. Yet managing and maintaining your own IT infrastructure and services can be daunting. Because of the challenges that come with monitoring and managing your own systems, an increasing number of businesses are turning towards partnering with managed service providers (MSPs) to either supplement their team or completely outsource their infrastructure management.
But it’s not just IT teams that have had to evolve. MSP partners have had to evolve as well to meet these new customer demands. In the past, cost savings were seen as the primary benefit of MSPs. Now cost benefits are considered table stakes, and customers are looking for more benefits like generating revenue and helping the organization run more efficiently. Even security has evolved from being considered a roadblock to using MSPs to a reason for outsourcing.
