The Managed IT Services Opportunity
Quocirca’s Managed IT Services study reveals that UK organisations are increasing their adoption of managed IT services to address a range of challenges associated with handling IT in-house. Alongside the desire to shift the focus of IT resources and leadership to more strategic activities, organisations are being hindered by legacy technology and complex IT infrastructure which places a significant burden on internal teams. As a result, many are turning to managed service providers (MSPs) to offload infrastructure, user support and security operations and management.
This snapshot report of 50 UK IT Decision Makers looks into adoption of managed IT services and interest in using a single MSP for both the print and IT environment.
