Creating a new environment faces companies with costs related to building it and then maintaining it: it’s more than just the hardware, the licenses, the installation and the upgrades. A lot of skills from the IT staff are also required to manage a very technical environment including a variety of software products, and to support users for a variety of issues.
This combination is particularly difficult in small to mid-sized companies where an in-depth technical expertise is required every day from a small team. Managed Services also offers a clearer view on the operational costs of your environment and it adapts itself quickly to new demands of the business.
