Amid fast-changing technologies and elevated data security concerns, more companies than ever are outsourcing at least some of their IT functions. So what are managed IT services?
Employing managed IT services means that you hire an outside company to take over day-to-day management of specified IT needs. Some companies choose to outsource all of their IT functions, while others take an a la carte approach. A June 2015 CompTIA survey found that more than two-thirds of respondents had outsourced at least some of their IT functions in the last 12 months. IT services commonly hired out include backup and recovery, storage, email hosting, and customer relations management apps.
Why are so many companies using managed IT solutions? There are a number of benefits, most of them involving efficiency, reliability, security and compliance, and of course, cost. Here are some of the most common reasons companies are choosing managed IT services:
In today’s world, nearly every business relies on technology. That’s why businesses can’t afford to skimp on IT management. Outsourcing IT services is beneficial to any type of business, particularly small businesses that have fewer resources to dedicate to IT support. Even a large business with an in-house IT staff can hire out some of the work if there are, for example, staffing shortages or unfamiliar system issues.
