What is a Managed Service Provider (MSP)?

A managed service provider (MSP) delivers services, such as network, application, infrastructure and security, via ongoing and regular support and active administration on customers’ premises, in their MSP’s data center (hosting), or in a third-party data center. MSPs may deliver their own native services in conjunction with other providers’ services (for example, a security MSP providing sys admin on top of a third-party cloud IaaS). Pure-play MSPs focus on one vendor or technology, usually their own core offerings. Many MSPs include services from other types of providers. The term MSP traditionally was applied to infrastructure or device-centric types of services but has expanded to include any continuous, regular management, maintenance and support.

Did you know that for most businesses, IT is the second-largest budget item after employees?

The rapid evolution of technology in the modern marketplace and the ability to use it to both increase revenue and decrease expenses has small businesses looking for CIO-level expertise. That’s where Planning, Consulting, and Reporting Services come in.

Analyze IT environment.
For many businesses, the assessment of the work environment, from the hardware and software to the infrastructure and business processes, reveals a series of opportunities to improve the company’s system.

Use technology strategically.
Understanding what technology can help a business accomplish a specific business objective and developing a plan allows businesses to create an IT system aligned with the company’s needs and vision. This takes strategy and, often times, a deep technical knowledge of how all the moving parts work – or don’t work – together.

Know what’s around the corner.
Looking around corners is an essential Planning and Consulting task. Knowing what’s next and being able to analyze the impact these changes could have helps a company invest in the right technology at the right time.
