Enterprise IT management isn’t for the faint of heart. Yes, it can be done in house as long as you have the right people and the right amount of people on staff. But what if your organization isn’t large enough to handle that amount of overhead and bandwidth? Well, we have good news for you as there is an alternative that offers additional, key, cost-saving benefits.
The largest enterprises, as well as many of the smaller ones, utilize outsourced managed infrastructure. Some choose to outsource their entire IT operations, while others take a piecemeal approach and use it during peak busy times or when their resources are dedicated elsewhere and extra help is needed.
Whatever the case, it’s smart business to have a partner you can rely on in your corner that has the expertise needed to help your IT teams handle both small and large projects when needed.
How Will We Know When We Need to Work With a Managed Infrastructure Provider?
Glad you asked! We created a blueprint for you to follow in the form of a checklist that’s a great illustrator for times when your organization may benefit from the help of an enterprise IT management expert provider. Download the managed infrastructure checklist and work your way through it to see how well your organization scores.
As a sneak preview to some of the checklist topics, here are some challenges and tips that may help you learn more about the type of assistance a managed infrastructure expert can provide:
Problem #1 – Your geographically dispersed work teams often don’t have the secure network access they need to keep your customer information and data safe and your organization compliant.
Tip – Partner with a managed infrastructure provider that can upgrade your cyber security measures with advanced technology that gives your work teams the secure access they need to keep cyber criminals and hackers locked out from your customer data.
Problem #2 – Your networks are accommodating more and more employee-owned devices that make it difficult to keep your security protections up to date.
Tip – Work with an expert provider that can implement multi-layered security measures that make it difficult for cyber thieves to exploit network vulnerabilities to gain access to your networks, such as encryption software, multi-factor authentication channels, strong and varied password programs, etc.
Problem #3 – Your organization keeps growing to the point that it’s now difficult to control the costs for new applications and data services.
Tip – Outsource some of your services and technology to an expert provider that can help you cut costs by migrating to the cloud, reviewing your current subscriptions, upgrading and consolidating technologies, revamping and standardizing your network infrastructure, etc.
