The sheer volume of data from numerous sources within an organization’s IT network is rapidly increasing, due to the advancements in the use of cloud-based software and the Internet of Things (IoT). In addition to this, the continual rise of competition in the marketplace to offer shorter product development cycle, intuitive user interface, and greater visibility have left companies striving to use innovative technologies and optimize performance. To add to it, an enterprise’s in-house IT team is often tasked to employ new data centers and more complex cybersecurity systems to build a safe digital and well-connected IT infrastructure, while managing the various business processes. Subsequently, an enterprise, more specifically small-medium businesses (SMB), may often experience unwarranted downtime due to a lack of skilled IT resources and become subject to a range of digital and organizational risks. To help companies circumvent these technological hardships, managed IT service providers (MSP) have emerged.
To identify today’s leaders in the managed IT services domain, a distinguished panel, comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, analysts, and the CIO Applications’ editorial board, has reviewed the top consulting/services companies. In our selection process, we looked at each of the vendor’s capability to fulfill the need for cost-effective and flexible consultation services in managed IT. The shortlisted companies are at the forefront of tackling the challenges associated with managed IT by catering to the needs of the enterprise buyers and assist them with email and web hosting, data storage, servers, network maintenance, and other technical work.
