Managed service provider (MSP)

A Managed service provider refers to an IT company that is offering managed services to end users and organizations of a proactive basis. Managed services are essentially responsible for hosting and managing servers, specialized applications and network of clients. Generally, MSPs own the entire physical back-end infrastructure and provide resources to their clients. All this is remotely performed over the internet and helps clients cut costs along with enhancing their operations. Managed services provided by MSPs are considered to be an alternative to the break-fix or on-demand outsourcing model where services are offered on-demand and the client is billed for these services. MSPs have the following advantages-

  • 24/7/365 network monitoring
  • Comprehensive reporting
  • Improved security
  • Cost effective

When choosing an It company as the MSP, you do not relinquish overall managerial control and responsibility for the operations being outsourced and thus remain accountable. Plus, you get to choose exactly which services you want managed externally, and which ones you’ll keep working on in-house. The MSP will handle the time-consuming, complex, repetitive, and arduous work involved. Outsourcing to a managed service provider is becoming a growing trend in business as more and more companies come to realize the benefits of moving many of their day-to-day operations to a third party.
