What Makes the Best IT Support Managed Service Provider?

Long gone are the days when the main job of enterprises IT personnel was reduced to informing employees to reboot their computers. Today, networks are far more complex than they used to be, a few year ago. This is also because Cloud-based migrations have made things scalable, agile, flexible, albeit technically complicated.

In-house management of enterprises IT infrastructure is not something that most businesses can handle. In order to give employees the freedom to think about more strategic and important business operations, more and more businesses are now engaging with IT support managed service providers.

Managed IT service providers have all the required skillset, talent, technologies and certified solutions architects to effectively look after your IT infrastructure. It is noteworthy to remember that selection of the right managed service provider can be a daunting task due to high stakes. Nevertheless, the following mentioned points summarize the gist of things that make the best IT support managed service provider.

1. In today’s business environment, Cloud is omnipresent. It is very important that your selected IT service provider must be an expert in dealing with various types of Cloud Computing environments, be it Public Cloud, Private Cloud or a combination of both. They should be easily able to move workloads to the Cloud.

2. Another important factor to consider is that your managed IT service provider should be willing to offer some level of customization in their offerings. One-size-fits-all approaches have now become redundant. Managed IT service providers should be able to deliver services, tailored in accordance to your needs.

3. You should also check all the documents and certificates of your managed IT service providers about their regulatory compliance status. This is very important because the complexity of compliance laws is only increasing with time. They should also be able to monitor your company’s regulatory compliance position and point out if there is a problem.

4. Another thing to remember is that your Service Level Agreement (SLA) must be written in a way that favors your company as well, not just managed service provider. It is always better if everything is discussed in advanced, from the future role and responsibilities regarding performance, problem management, escalation or termination of contract.
