Benefits of Working with a Microsoft Partner – Excellent Microsoft Support Included
If your company has a lean IT team and has tons of servers and workstations under your belt that you have to support and maintain, it makes sense to outsource of the repetitive tasks to a Managed Service IT provider so that they can maintain your systems for you and provide you with Excellent Microsoft Support service.
The Managed Service provider usually has a wealth of knowledge to understand what the best is for you and your IT department and what you should be running. They are usually tasked with fixing and preventing problems, have been exposed to other similarly deployed networks and have seen many other use cases, so they know what is good for you.
I was reached out by a customer recently who was still running on an outdated Windows 2003 server and was attacked. The reason is obvious. Windows 2003 has been end-of-life since July 2015. Microsoft Support has not released updates and fixed for it since then and have advised customers to upgrade their systems.
Sometimes customers are not aware of these issues or they do not have the time or want to spend the time to upgrade their environment. That is when you want to work with a dedicated and chosen Managed Service provider. They look out in the best of your interest. It is like having primary family doctor. They have a record of your yearly health checkups. The Managed Service provider that you choose will let you know (and should) the things that you should on a regular basis (either monthly, quarterly, or yearly) part of the IT upkeep. They have a record of all your systems and will provide you with tasks of things you should to prevent any malfunctions of your systems.
One other reason to partner with a Managed Service Provider is that they are most likely aware of these end of life and end of support for many of the systems and devices that customers are running, not just for the Microsoft environment. They are at the forefront of the technology trends and know what is best for you. They spend the time and energy to stay on top; otherwise, they know that they will get out beaten by competitors if they don’t and they will lose customers and revenue.
When you don’t have the time or bandwidth to do the research (which sometimes are very time consuming) and you would rather work on other business tasks and higher priority projects, this is another great reason to outsource your projects to a trusted Managed Service provider. In the case of a Microsoft environment, they will give you the superior Microsoft Support that you need at the finger tip of a phone call or email. If not, you have the options to choose other provider who will respond to the SLA (service level agreement) that you want and need.
One other main reason to work with a Managed Service provider is to accelerate the deployment of your projects. When you have to deploy a new version of Microsoft Office Suite, for example, in your company massive wide, you don’t have the time and all the tools to work through all the testing to see if the new version will be compatible with your existing environment, the Managed Service provider will usually have a team of highly experienced and certified engineers with the knowledge and skill-sets to help you with that project. They have the team, technology resources and all the tools that you may need to assist with the deployment of your IT projects in a matter of weeks and shorter duration that it would take you normally to deploy it yourself.
Your project gets implemented quickly and most cases, it probably would not cost you more than a year’s worth of salary for an equivalent of a fully curtained, experienced and trained engineer. If you work on the project yourself, you have to train your engineer, have the engineer learn and test the project, all of these take time and time means money.
