The term “managed services” refers to an outsourced IT service provider who oversees and manages your IT solutions. Networks and servers, software and technology infrastructures, data backup systems, and overall network security and risk management are typical IT solutions overseen and maintained by a managed services provider (MSP).
When you outsource system management to IT managed services, you get more comprehensive round-the-clock monitoring and support without the cost of a comparable internal employee.
What Are the Advantages of Using IT Managed Services?
By shifting general administration and monitoring chores from an in-house team to a better prepared external team, managed services help to improve operations and decrease costs.
Because hiring an in-house person to monitor and supervise IT systems around the clock would be prohibitively expensive, IT managed services provide 24/7 IT system monitoring at a fraction of the cost of an equally watchful in-house hire.
It also increases security by transferring network and data security from a single person to a group of people who follow tight standards and protocols. While it’s easy for a single person to overlook certain aspects of your IT security and monitoring, a managed services company is specifically structured to oversee all aspects of your robust systems, watch for potential or impending hazards or malfunctions, and reduce any risks as soon as possible—often before they become an actual problem.
Managed services also free up time for your in-house IT staff. It takes a lot of time to monitor and manage information technology. By delegating this aspect of IT management to a third party, your internal IT team may concentrate on day-to-day issues and strategic long-term planning.
Is IT Design and Implementation Included in IT Managed Services?
Some individuals are unsure whether managed services include IT service design and execution. While “managed services” has typically meant “administration of already-implemented IT systems,” some managed systems providers (MSPs) now provide design and implementation services, making them more of a one-stop-shop for IT needs.
