Ask any Network or Telecom professional how he or she feels about outsourcing their company’s network operations to a managed services provider (MSP), and chances are more likely than not they will disagree with the practice.
Ask a member of the C-suite, however, and you’re likely to receive a different answer as a growing number of organizations are now embracing the practice of outsourcing to MSPs, in order to enhance network operations, protect their data and save money.
In fact, two-thirds of organizations surveyed in a recent study indicate they have used the services of an IT firm within the past year.
In other words, while network folks are usually quick to view onsite infrastructure as a company asset, an increasing number of executives are viewing it as a liability for reasons related to security concerns, performance issues and heavy operational expenditures.
The problem for Network and Telecom administrators is that it’s hard to argue a case against outsourcing core network operations to an MSP when you can’t keep your network running flawlessly. A network, after all, needs to act like a kid who is up after his or her bedtime; that is, it needs to go unnoticed. The moment complaints start pouring in about poor network performance, is the moment words like outsourcing and MSP begin to get tossed around.
