When Juggling Business Responsibilities, You Can't Afford to Drop IT Maintenance

When Juggling Business Responsibilities, You Can't Afford to Drop IT Maintenance

The business world increasingly relies on IT services. Regardless of which industry you fall into, IT will undoubtedly play a major role in how your business functions on a daily basis. Businesses also need their technology to remain in proper working order, but this is easier said than done--especially if you don’t have the luxury of an in-house IT department. Thankfully, managed service providers make this much less difficult.

Compared to the traditional break-fix model of IT management, a managed IT provider aims to take a different, more proactive approach. Instead of managing your technology yourself and paying for maintenance when a system has failed, a MSP will take measures to keep your IT in proper working order so that it doesn’t leave you high and dry. Another imperative detail to include is that a managed IT provider takes care of your IT solutions so that you don’t have to, keeping you from spending time on business-disrupting IT troubles and preventing downtime as a whole.

For an example, consider the following scenario and how MSPs can influence how you do business.

It goes without saying that managing a business might have you spread a bit thin. Some tasks will naturally be sidelined in favor of more important initiatives. For example, installing updates for your various technology solutions is a task that might be pushed to the side, even though they are needed, simply because it’s a time-consuming process. Therefore, you miss out on critical opportunities and benefits that you could gain from updating your technology regularly.

Perhaps you are running a version of your operating system or program that is vulnerable to a serious threat. Without a proper update or patch, this vulnerability could lead to your business suffering from downtime or data breaches. It might not seem like there’s time in the day to patch up this vulnerability, but your organization can suffer from a delayed reaction to this vulnerability. Yet, juggling all of your responsibilities makes a timely approach to this issue, which has yet to show any real signs of even being an issue, just about impossible.

Managed services allow your organization to receive technology assistance from an MSP, including real-time monitoring and management, as well as updates as they are needed. This means that your applications will always remain up-to-date without your organization taking time out of its already-full schedule to make sure they happen. Since most maintenance can be performed remotely during the company’s off-hours, you can avoid in-house distractions and downtime.

Of course, this is only a singular example of how managed IT services can help your organization. If you want to know more about managed IT, reach out to Computerware at (703) 821-8200.
