Defining Managed Services

Whether you’re plagued with persistent network problems, such as security vulnerabilities, poor performance, and a barrage of support requests, or you just need a little network fine tuning, managed services can help. Set your sights on a safer network that minimizes security threats and tedious management tasks, and maximizes time spent on priorities. Managed services provide you experts with extensive experience in helping customers cut IT costs while increasing capability and performance.

In today’s environment, you want a network as secure and reliable as possible. Managed services deliver a rock-sold, safe, and dependable networks by providing services that will analyze and detect areas of vulnerability. This will consequently give your organization recommendations for reducing those vulnerabilities. With the help of a managed services provider your organization will see real benefits that optimize your network by simplifying IT administration and management as well as managing your entire infrastructure from a single location. In addition, deployment, backup and upgrades will be automated and the cost and complexity of managing your servers and desktops will be reduced. With managed services you can proactively manage changing business conditions and are able to adapt effortlessly.

Managed IT services will completely assume the role of your IT department. In turn, this will free your company from any technical obligations leaving more time for other important tasks. Having a fully managed IT service will require far less resources from the company due to its autonomy. Therefore, managed services eliminate any need to hire IT staff and can act like a virtual CIO. With a secure and optimized network, you can pursue more strategic initiatives and really move your business forward.

In many cases, your managed IT service agreement can be bundled with discretionary on-site system administration hours you can use whenever you need engineers to perform tasks on-site. You may also purchase additional on-site hours at a special price, for such tasks as break/fix occurrences, initial system deployment, and major OS upgrades. During the initial phase, engineers usually discuss all steps of the implementation with you prior to beginning. They will then install the software necessary for remote administration, performing any reconfiguration required to bring all administered systems to a known state for easier monitoring and management. All configuration changes will be documented and provided to you.

The managed IT services program provides the critical tasks to keep your system up and running. Tasks conducted by managed services engineers to enable workstation managed IT services include site assessment, reviewing system infrastructure and network security policies, ensuring network consistency and bringing infrastructure and systems to a known state by installing applications, patches, or required updates. In addition, an inventory of your database will be conducted as well as defining service and support procedures, discretionary on-site time, and the parameters of the service.
