Are you looking for ways to boost your business? If yes, it’s time to give managed services a chance. #WiredWednesdays are all about industry and market trends and our thoughts on it. So let us take a deeper dive into managed services.
So, what exactly are managed services, and why do they matter?
To put it simply, managed services are all about delegating various business operations to third parties who have the experience, skills, and tools to manage the outsourced operations on your behalf.
By doing so, your business can save a lot of time and benefit from the improved, streamlined organization of services. This post will equip you with an in-depth understanding of managed services, their types, benefits, and more.
At its core, all managed services are driven by a common goal – to handle the maintenance and development of the service for businesses.
Generally, the managed service providers or operators are provided with a clear blueprint of the business’s expectations and requirements for the service, in accordance with which the managed services are delivered.
Managed services are wide-ranging and can be found across all industries, ranging from information services, supply chain management services, transportation services, storage services, etc.
Some notable examples of managed service providers include IBM, Accenture, Cognizant, Atos, Capgemini, ATEA, and ALTEN.
By 2026, the global managed services market is expected to be valued at $274.2 Billion. Further, research predicts that IT-based managed services like cloud storage, big data, and IoT look poised to dominate the market in the future.
The Types of Managed Services
There is a plethora of managed services that businesses can avail of, depending on their needs. Listed below are the managed services that are ruling the roost in 2021.
Every business deals with a significant amount of important and sensitive data on a daily basis. By taking advantage of backup services, you can have your data stored securely on a third-party server.
Further, most backup services come with detailed data recovery methods that you can benefit from in the event of a systems outage.
An increasing number of companies and businesses have started to hire data analytics service providers. They are usually entrusted with collecting and monitoring data, analyzing trends, and compiling comprehensive evaluation reports.
Businesses then use these reports to develop customer-centric products and services.
Managed Services for Communication
Clear, effective, and quick communication is a requirement that all businesses have. Consequently, many of them are opting for communication services that come embedded with features like instant messaging, email communication, voice and video calling features, and file-sharing abilities – all rolled into one.
For example, think Microsoft Teams.
Managed services in the domains of cyber security, networking, and infrastructure have also become the need of the hour for countless businesses.
