Information Technology Systems (IT) are expected to meet high operational standards, in addition to 24/7 uptime, security, and performance benchmarks. In today’s world, you have to keep pace with the constant changes in IT, performance demands, and pressure to deliver competitive IT functionality. To meet these challenges, many organizations consider outsourcing their Fort Lauderdale IT services as an attractive option.
Managed Services Provider (MSP) lets you outsource specific IT operations to them. The MSP is responsible for monitoring, managing and/or full-scale problem resolution for you IT systems. This includes everything from virus and software updates to inventory auditing and control. Basic services often start with a monitoring service that notifies you of the problems, but does not solve them for you. More comprehensive services cover everything from monitoring to resolution of issues.
Prior to the advent and popularity of managed services, most businesses relied upon an “its-broken/fix-it model”, a reactive IT model that would mask larger issues for quick solutions. Businesses that relied on this method would invariably experience longer down-times when dormant issues surfaced, creating financial and business setbacks. With managed services, maintenance is proactive; ensuring better uptime and faster response to crises. MSPs act as an extension of your IT department, taking care of routine IT infrastructure monitoring and management around the clock and freeing up your IT staff to focus on more important projects. An MSP proactively monitors and maintains your systems in order to prevent problems and downtime.
Outsourced IT services are inherently scalable, giving you the power to decide how much you want your provider to manage, versus how much you want to handle yourself. Additionally, the monthly MSP subscription model gives you budgetary predictability.
