An IT managed services provider (MSP) can help your organization access a highly skilled and dedicated IT team without it being an in-house resource. They can effectively manage your infrastructure and cloud demand and ensure your other crucial IT infrastructure runs smoothly. Although many companies prefer initially to take care by themselves of their IT environment, with the growth of the business, the complexity is increasing rapidly and you either need to recruit more IT people or outsource part of the activities externally.
The salaries for infrastructure managers and cloud experts in the USA are starting from $154,728 per year according to Indeed.com. These costs increase with all the additional spending on recruitment agencies and headhunters. So in reality maintaining a vast IT team internally may consume a significant budget and still does not guarantee that everything will run smoothly and with no downtime.
Engaging with an experienced managed service provider can help you solve some of the toughest IT challenges:
- Increased complexity
- Demand for better availability and security
- Avoiding vendor lock-in
- Paying thousands of USD for licenses
- Staying compliant
