On Business Resiliency: Outsourcing an MSP

The COVID-19 pandemic brought disruption all over the world causing a global crisis. However, despite the vaccine invention and its current availability, the steady surge of the cases in places around the globe tells us one thing: this crisis is not going away as swiftly as it came, and resiliency will once again be brought in.

In the world of business, resiliency is a term that involves crisis management and continuity of operations. This determines an organization’s ability to quickly adapt to unexpected situations and weather past challenging hurdles. 

Further, a robust IT system serves as an umbrella in times of turbulent storms. Whether it is caused by a pandemic, malware, or natural disasters, an IT disaster severely compromises an organization’s ability to last. Moreover, loss of data access, security breaches, total system shutdown, and even simple technical difficulties can cause a significantly detrimental impact on a company’s productivity.

So, how can you be more resilient?

Here are some challenges that you have to address in order to prepare yourself for unforeseen circumstances:

Work-from-home setups can lead to higher technical support demands and data privacy concerns. Additionally, companies that handle sensitive information should consider hiring more staff and adding more layers of security.

Moreover, physical servers are less flexible as opposed to cloud servers. Migrating your data to a cloud system or creating a backup may be the best way to ensure that your data is safe in the case of an IT disaster.

Performing a risk assessment and security audit to determine the gaps and weaknesses in your IT system is a vital step to further understand how you can prevent a compromise of your IT system’s integrity.

With all the information and courses of action to take in order to achieve business resiliency, it is time to rethink whether your in-house IT team can handle all these on top of their existing workload.

Is it time to consider outsourcing an MSP?

Managed Service Provider (MSP) delivers a range of IT management, maintenance, and support services. Thus, this includes infrastructure administration and support, Data Migration, security services, etc.

By outsourcing an MSP, you get certified specialists who can provide different IT services. These experts can provide advice on how to protect your IT infrastructure, and employ the necessary steps to protect your business.

Your company needs an MSP that will solve challenges for you. And ensure that your IT operation is always in excellent condition to serve clients. When choosing the right MSP, they should be able to tick these boxes:

 Deep and growing understanding of the IT business

With technology rapidly evolving, an MSP must first be proactive. Second, can adapt to the latest trends and issues in the business. Lastly, does invest in knowledge by attending seminars, taking certification exams, and continuously finding ways to further their expertise.

Vendor relationships

Working relationships with vendors are important. Thus, a good MSP should be able to design a service strategy that works best for your company.

Provides custom IT services

There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach in IT services. Therefore, an MSP should be able to put together a plan that will suit your budget and benefit your business the most.

Do not be afraid to ask questions and clarifications from your potential MSP. You have to determine whether or not they are the right match for your organization.
