Whether you’re running a small business or a large corporation, securing reliable IT management is an absolute necessity in the era of digital technology. If your business doesn’t adapt to the way consumers prefer to receive information, it will quickly be lost in a sea of competitors. But before you choose a managed services provider, it’s important to know what you’ll be getting. Here are just a few myths about managed services providers.

  1. MYTH: Managed services providers don’t have advanced technical knowledge; a company can usually handle its IT needs from within.

    This used to have some basis in truth. But with the rapid speed at which technology continues to develop, not all companies are able to allocate adequate funding to handle their needs on site. Simplehelix.com says, “With a managed solution in place, the company’s internal IT team will have more time to focus on other mission-critical aspects of the business’s technology infrastructure. However, there are still some that have a hard time believing this to be true. Many of these are organizations that have not yet implemented a fully managed, hosted solution, and are thus unable to see for themselves the advantages of doing so.”

  2. MYTH: Managed services providers do not offer reliable IT management.

    While it’s true that some managed services providers certainly offer a wider scope of support than others, the best managed services providers have a duty not only to manage your company’s IT needs, but to educate you and your staff every step of the way. The most reliable managed services providers take the extra time to discuss their managed services models in detail and determine a plan that works for you and your company.

  3. MYTH: Managed services providers are quickly becoming obsolete.

    This could not be further from the truth! The fact is, the managed security services market is expected to almost double by 2020, from $17.02 billion to $33.68 billion. It will only continue to grow as long as there is a need for reliable IT management.

Ultimately, it’s important to carefully consider the types of managed services before choosing a provider that works for you. For more information about reliable IT management, contact Manhattan Tech Support.
