Managed IT is more than just a cost saver. It’s the best way to leverage evolving technology to fuel business growth.
Managed IT is more than just a cost saver.
For years, companies moved to managed IT and outsourcing of technology as a cost-saving measure. Where managed IT still provides an outstanding ROI, companies today are finding bigger benefits: taking advantage of advanced technologies, such as AI, Machine Learning, Agile Builds, and RPA (Robotic Process Automation).
A Deloitte Consulting survey revealed that 84% of companies are working on disruptive solutions. Half of those organizations are seeking bold technology transformation. Such transformation is increasingly becoming necessary to compete but can be prohibitively expensive to build, operate, and maintain in-house. Even if you have the financial resources to build it out, hardware and software change quickly. Strategies and tactics change. You will need to have staff with the right skills for today and the ability to handle whatever tech needs you’ll need tomorrow.
That’s why companies are increasingly outsourcing their IT services.
A recent survey asked company executives to rank the top reasons why they outsourced their IT services. Here are the top benefits these organizations reported from using managed IT services:
Provides access to skills not available with current staffing
Hiring dedicated tech specialists can be time-consuming and expensive. Once you find them, you must invest in training to keep their skills current. Because of budget limitations, you are more likely to have IT team members with a broad base of skills but limited experience in cutting edge technology applications.
Managed IT providers have teams of specialists that are experts in advanced tech. This lets you tap into expert-level knowledge instantly. It allows you to more efficiently manage one-time projects.
Managed IT provides cost savings in a variety of ways. The ability to pay-as-you-go maximizes your capacity without having to pay for hardware capacity you aren’t currently using. When you can scale quickly at any time, you don’t need to buy this excess capacity until you need it.
Managed IT experts, hardware, and security costs are amortized across clients. This translates to higher quality tech support staff but lower overall costs.
There can also be significant cost savings on power consumption, cooling costs, maintenance, and rent.
Frees up resources to focus more closely on core business
Experts can manage your IT and get it done quickly and efficiently. This frees up your IT teams to focus on their core responsibilities rather than spending time on things such as network monitoring and security. There’s less need for time-consuming troubleshooting and more time for high-level company business objectives.
Better Scale and Flexibility
With managed IT, you can scale quickly as business needs change. You don’t need to wait for hardware to be ordered, provisioned, and put into service.
Your business agility increases with cloud-based services and managed IT. You have access to advanced tools that can be quickly integrated and launched.
Improves the ability to innovate
In business today, you must be able to move fast. Staying competitive and relevant is no easy task. When your staff is tied up doing routine tasks, it can be difficult to innovate. Relieving this burden can free them up to focus on the future.
85% of companies surveyed said digital transformation of their organization is paramount to future success. 69% agree that the only survivors five years from now will the businesses that have digitally transformed themselves.
By deploying managed IT services, you have access to advanced innovation tools to fuel your digital transformation and leverage advancing technology. AI, Machine Learning, Agile Builds, and RPA (Robotic Process Automation) are all available to you with integrated toolsets to build custom apps and power business decisions. This can improve operational efficiency, increase your time-to-market strategies, and better meet company and customer expectations.
