Does My Business Need Network Management?
How do you know whether or not your business needs managed network services? There are a wide range of criteria for managed network services, including a number of locations, staff and budget resources, mobile access, and bandwidth capacity. The bottom line is that if you are no longer meeting the needs of your company and/or if upgrades would result in significant savings, it is time to think about these services.
Why Can’t We Do It In-house?
While it is always possible to manage networks in-house with existing IT staff, this solution is not always simple or cost effective. For example, maybe your staff isn't trained properly or it isn't feasible to reduce network overhead expenses while expanding network services. Outsourcing IT services comes with a centralized, secure, and highly resilient infrastructure that offers up to date technology and equipment, streamlined services, and regular monthly costs. Once your IT department is no longer responsible for all network support tasks, they can put their time and energy elsewhere to increase productivity and, ultimately, revenue for the company.
What To Look For In A Network Management Company
After you've made the decision to look into managed network service providers, you must narrow down a single provider for your company. As there are a wide range of options, this process can be daunting. You want to find a provider that is a good fit for your business, that manages its own network, and offers a wide selection of services. You don't want to pay for services that are way beyond what your company will ever need, but you want a provider that will allow you to scale your services up or down, depending on the current needs of your organization. As you weigh varying options, consider service offerings; network, voice and security operations; Service Level Agreements (SLAs); number of certified professionals; and industry partnerships.
