Technology is expanding at a rapid rate and moving in all directions however companies are being left behind.
Businesses are becoming more competitive and lean thanks to technology. Many businesses are turning to Managed IT Services providers (MSPs) to handle these new complex IT networks however some businesses do not want to use Managed IT Services providers (MSPs) as they are afraid to give up control. This fear is actually limiting these companies including competitiveness, productivity and growth.
As IT complexity increases within organizations, many businesses want full control of their servers and the rest of the network. What businesses fail to realize is that complete control requires a lot of time, effort and money that could be spent in other areas including growing the business. Today’s successful companies turn to Managed IT Services providers (MSP) to alleviate the responsibility of the network and allow them to run their business.
So why do some businesses refuse to hand off control to Managed IT Services providers (MSPs)?
Companies need to change their mindset when it comes to their business and IT infrastructure. When it comes to internal IT departments, they are focusing on the daily tech support and IT infrastructure maintenance instead of working on projects to make the company more competitive. These departments should be focusing on what is good for business and how to use technology to make it more competitive and increase productivity. For companies without IT departments, the DIY (Do It Yourself) model does not make sense as you are use your precious time to handle your IT instead of running your business including growth.
