You may not think that you need managed IT services in Los Angeles, but if you want to give your business the technological edge in this increasingly digital marketplace, it would behoove you to consider getting managed IT services.
So, what are managed IT services? Believe it or not, a decade ago, the top Managed Service Providers (MSP’s) leaders had a meeting, and they came up with a proper definition of managed IT services. Namely, managed IT services are “the proactive management of an IT (Information Technology) asset or object, by a third-party typically known as a MSP, on behalf of a customer.”
Managed IT services can incorporate a number of things, but the most common elements of managed IT services include, but are certainly not limited to, the following:
- Data backup and recovery for different devices, including desktops, laptops, servers, storage systems, and networks.
- Mobile device management: as more and more companies move to a mobile platform (i.e., smartphones, tablets), these systems need to be managed, as well. Managed IT services can incorporate the management of mobile devices into their plan for the client, should the client’s needs call for same.
- Proactive management of all computer and network systems: a proactive management approach to systems allows for the proper maintenance of said systems; this is different from a reactive approach, which only maintains the systems after there has been a breach in security.
- Complete transparency in billing: any time a managed IT services company submits an invoice to a customer, complete accountability for all services performed — and the appropriate charges for services performed — needs to be part and parcel of a proper managed IT services plan.
If your business is in a specialized field — such as financing/banking, medical, or legal — you will not only require managed IT services, but managed IT services that are specific to your specialized field.
