Safety in Numbers

We’ve written about the benefits of cloud computing and managed service providers (MSPs) before. But now there are numbers that suggest those benefits are being more widely recognized and adopted. In fact, according to market.us:

Nearly 94% of organizations [are] contemplating or already utilizing cloud solutions like Office 365, AWS, and cloud backup to streamline their IT operations … approximately 71% [of small and medium-sized businesses] foresee cloud services as integral to their future success. Outsourcing IT functions is a strategy adopted by … 49% [of businesses] … benefiting from specialized skills such as cybersecurity and disaster recovery … Managed IT services offer round-the-clock monitoring, ensuring 99.99% network uptime and proactive issue resolution while mitigating the escalating costs and inefficiencies associated with aging IT equipment … they free up approximately 65% of IT budgets typically allocated to routine maintenance … Leveraging big data, cloud technology, and mobile strategies can yield a remarkable 53% increase in business growth.

Those are some pretty amazing statistics and some pretty substantial benefits.

What’s in It for You?

In addition to the benefits above, by working with an MSP, you’ll improve your productivity and your efficiency because you’ll be able to devote more attention to strategic initiatives and core functions. You’ll have the extensibility to scale your IT capabilities to keep pace with the growth of your business. That, in turn, will provide greater ROI by optimizing your IT operations and leveraging new technologies, even as you reduce expenses typically accrued from additional software, maintenance, and upgrades. Working with an MSP also means you won’t have to carry the overhead of an IT staff. You’ll have the specialized technical knowledge and the problem-solving expertise of the MSP.

There are softer benefits, as well. Working with an MSP can provide peace of mind by helping to streamline and simplify operations and management and by providing specific service-level agreements and a single point of contact for addressing issues with your system environment. An MSP will also give you a more efficient and agile approach to managing your technical infrastructure than traditional in-house management and by covering a broader range of business functions than your staff personnel might be able to cover.
