Managed IT Services – Managing Change, Driving Efficiency, and Optimizing Investments
No area of an organization encounters more change than IT. The daily demands on IT leaders to optimize performance, safeguard data, meet regulatory requirements, and drive efficiency are ever-increasing. Complicating matters is the high turnover rate among IT staff. With every team member exit, vital knowledge is lost―making it increasingly more difficult to optimize IT investments and stay ahead of the technology curve.
Managed IT Services has emerged as a powerful resource as businesses discover the advantages of working with an outside IT expert to help keep their IT operations running efficiently, reliably, and securely. In an era where technology is a fundamental driver of business growth, efficient, reliable IT performance is more critical than ever.

Reaping the Benefits of Expert IT Support
“Not all providers are created equal and choosing the wrong one could prove costly. As your business needs change and grow, more focus is needed to ensure that technical delivery functions and IT services are designed, implemented, managed and controlled in a consistent manner. Selecting a service provider that can deliver the range of capabilities you need is critical. Following are some key criteria to consider.”
- Supports business growth. Your services provider should have the necessary skills and expertise to work with you to shape an IT strategy that aligns with your business goals and keeps your infrastructure secure, agile, and efficient. As your business grows, you’ll logically add to your support team, so you’ll want a service provider that can quickly and efficiently add new systems, workstations, and support locations.
- Ahead of the technology curve. One thing is clear: technology will continue to evolve. You need an IT provider that can effectively adapt to both change and growth. Your provider should be well-versed in creating a solid technology roadmap to ensure your business remains on the forefront of IT management and performance capabilities.
- Security and compliance. Effective IT security requires a holistic approach that effectively blends proven best practices with new cutting-edge techniques. Your IT services provider should have deep experience in disaster recovery planning and be capable of effectively guiding you on new and emerging compliance requirements. They should be up to speed and highly skilled in the ability to define your business requirements and implement a security plan that aligns with your current and long-term needs.
- Help Desk. Your service provider should be able to clearly outline and define its Help Desk capabilities. Where is it based? What is the expertise level of support staff? What is the standard response time? Will you get immediate help from an expert or will someone call you back? Ideally your provider should offer an automated process to generate and track tickets and resolve problems from a single dashboard.
Data management. Make sure you understand (and your provider can clearly demonstrate) the practices and processes it uses to safeguard vital business assets. To protect sensitive data, IT policy controls should be automatically enforced through technical elements, such as authorization, authentication, access controls, password complexity, alerting, and system monitoring.
