It’s that time of year. The brackets are filled out and the money has been exchanged. Now college basketball fans anxiously await that first bounce of the basketball and that first squeak of the shoes that means “The Madness” has commenced. Welcome to the 2017 NCAA Tournament! Fans are betting on what they hope are the winningest teams to advance to the Final Four and the championship game. The stats have been analyzed, players assessed and the pools finalized.
Madness is defined as a “state of frenzied or chaotic activity.” March Madness gets its name from the unexpected upsets that create a whirlwind of outcomes that no one could predict. While it’s what makes the basketball tournament so exciting, unexpected outcomes in business are not so fun. Chaos in your infrastructure gets incredibly costly, very fast — and fixing chaos takes IT resources away from working on mission critical projects.
Because of the challenges that come with monitoring and managing your own systems, an increasing number of companies are turning towards managed service providers (MSPs), to either supplement their team or completely outsource their infrastructure management. The logic is similar – don’t take chances on unexpected outcomes, invest in the security of knowing your systems are running at optimal levels. Choosing the right IT systems and investing wisely in your technology team is paramount to keeping your business running strong.
Unlike March Madness, where a longshot might pay off, gambling on an MSP is not the answer. Due diligence is necessary as many MSPs do not offer a turnkey, full-service that goes beyond the basics of managing network and software infrastructure.
Considerations when choosing an MSP
When going up against your opponents, madness is ok for basketball, but not for your infrastructure.
