Top 4 Reasons Why You Need Next-Generation Managed Services
Dynamic business IT transformation requires advanced and flexible technology services that deliver business outcomes aligned to the organization’s goals. This trend triggered the Managed Services industry to evolve from traditional IT models to the ‘Next-Generation’ Managed Services which is swiftly moving towards automation and self-service, aiming to increase business agility and minimize cost.
Refining the way IT services are delivered to Businesses.
Next-Gen Managed Services expands IT operational support beyond the Traditional Managed Services which usually consists of security & incident management, patch management, access management, and business continuity. Organizations managed by Traditional Managed Service Providers (MSPs) found it difficult in keeping up with the agility and competitiveness in the industry full of evolving technologies, due to high reliance on the vendor and limited flexibility. In contrast, the Next-Gen Managed Services model is about increasing collaboration between the customers and MSPs by providing customer-centric solutions that are entirely automated, continuous, and extremely agile to deliver impactful value to the customer
Organizations that are building their IT environment across multiple cloud platforms will require Managed Services to shoulder some of the responsibility to help reduce cost, gain efficiency, scalability, and competitiveness. At the same time, they also need to ensure security and data compliance to keep up with governing business requirements. In addition to the traditional MSP model, Next-Gen Managed Services delivers a new standard of operations and management that provides services including DevOps integration, Selfservicing, Remote & Proactive monitoring, Vendor management, Service Intelligence, Continuous Security Compliance, and IT infrastructure Automation. With customizable tailormade solutions, Next-Gen MSP allows organizations to alleviate strain on their IT team and enable the management to focus on higher-value projects whilst the technology remains safely and effectively handled by the trusted MSP.

2. Vendor to Partner
Next-Gen MSPs are evolving towards offering long-term strategic consulting to add more value and support the organization’s business development than solely focusing on IT support services.

They take the time to truly understand your business vision, act as an extension of your team invested in helping your entire organization succeed, and further seesthis relationship as a long-term commitment than a typical contract. This results in a high level of MSP involvement, guidance, and transparency during the process.
