Organisations continue to grapple with balancing resource constraints in the context of the increasing pace of change that digital market disruption creates.
Managing that pace of change, while driving to genuine transformation, requires ruthless organisational focus. Targeted use of managed services has a role to play in enabling that focus. Agility is not optional — IT teams need to be focused on activity that delivers the greatest strategic value to drive digital transformation, at speed, with minimal distraction.
Managed services can enable greater agility, improved service levels and reduced costs. Used strategically, managed services can also help enterprises to mitigate the rising complexity of IT operations by optimising current infrastructure to focus on what is essential to differentiation.
Sophisticated organisations view managed services as a means of attaining, and maintaining competitive advantage — and not just a way to cut costs. Assessing when and how to apply this logic in your organisation is an essential component of the digital transformation landscape.
