MSPs (Managed Service Providers)

What are managed service providers?

The world of IT and cloud computing, managed service providers (MSPs) represent the company or vendor that oversees, or manages, an organization’s IT infrastructure or end-user systems. These services are typically contracted via a subscription service model where the MSP proactively manages all the IT over the internet, often leveraging cloud technologies to deliver these services. As such, “cloud service providers” and “managed service providers” are often considered synonymous, though the scope of services they both offer does not overlap completely (for instance, selling on-premises hardware).

Cloud opportunities for managed service providers

The rapid digitization of business is creating change on a massive scale. This change means enormous new opportunities for managed service providers whose primary sales proposition is hiding complexity for their customers and making it easier for them to consume technology. Now, more than ever, forward-thinking MSPs are leveraging the cloud to find a modern, scalable solution to their business needs - and the word is spreading.
