The rise in the number of Public Sector organisations that are looking to digitally transform while simultaneously reducing expenditure has led to a surge in the managed services industry, whether that’s hardware, software or a combination of the two.
It’s believed that more than two-thirds of organisations have already partnered with at least one managed service provider to handle their IT. The reason for this is a simple one – a managed service provider can take on the responsibility for the day-to-day running of systems and leave their customer free to focus on innovation. But this isn’t the only reason, they are also looking at managed services for the following:
- More efficient and reliable IT operations
- Enhanced security and compliance
- A proactive approach to maintenance
- Cost effectiveness and return on investment
- Free up internal IT staff to work on strategic projects
So, as you can probably guess, on this episode of POD we are talking about managed services.
To discuss this further we have Ben Rayner (Solutions Business Manager at Phoenix), Dave Hardcastle (Transformation Specialist at Phoenix), Keith Martin (Sales Director at Phoenix) and our regular host, Jonny Scott (Vendor Alliance Manager at Phoenix).
