May 20, 2019 OneNeck IT Solutions

2019-05-20_BlogThe landscape for Network Managed Services (NMS) providers continues to become more challenging, especially as application, management and compliance requirements keep evolving. Proactive support is a core component. At the same time, IT budgets for small- and medium-sized businesses keep shrinking while there is heightened focus on finding ways to squeeze more productivity out of limited resources.

NMS can provide a path for existing staff to spend more time in proactive, business-oriented pursuits vs. mundane, reactive tasks. In this CIOReview article, Brian Clarke, Solutions Architect—Networking and Collaboration, describes the Application Landscape, Network Management and Visibility, and Compliance Requirements. He also details how much of it should be the responsibility of an NMS provider.
