Managed Services, Take Me to the Promised Land

The promised land awaits you, would you like to see it, experience it?! Perhaps even immerse yourself in the endless potential for your business when you buy into IT managed services solutions including cloud. Does this sound like hype and sales speak? It is, and it is a part of the beautiful picture that may be painted when talking to business owners and C level executives.

Cloud and other managed service offerings do deliver on most of the headline objectives set out in the brochure, whether all of the business value is realised post implementation is another question. The goals of cloud are to make things more accessible to users when they need them and to do so in a productive and secure manner that compliments the business objectives. User adoption is, as always, key in realising full business benefit. The journey should never be an overnight one and is always of wide reaching impact into any business. Careful consideration and a well thought out strategy and approach are all that is required.

A good first step would involve a business assessment and analysis piece of work which typically commences by examining your business goals completely independent of IT. Cloud and managed services can simply then be considered tools (powerful and attractive tools as they may be) in a broader toolbox to assist your organisation in achieving its business goals.

Are you likely to go out and invest in a large storage array, fabric, server, hypervisors and implementation services as part of the resulting recommendations? Almost certainly not but there is still a chance of such an investment being required depending on your business drivers, external market factors, legacy systems  and applications dependencies in your specific estate.

We see more and more development projects that due to a lack of easily accessible resources simply go to Amazon, Azure or Google, spin up a system and go through the development lifecycle of a given application. More often than not developers and project managers may not care too much about the corporate world outside their programme of work. Things such as standards, governance, security, legislation, license implications and ongoing support are often given notional consideration.

No organisation is perfect, but the simple fact is that cloud will creep into your organisation in an uncontrolled manner if you don’t address it.

How many of your employees are using Sky Drives or Drop Box or equivalent to store valuable company data along with their personal information. The concern here is not whether Skydrive or Dropbox are secure (unless you’re the US government their environment they are likely to be much more secure than your corporate network!). The problem is your data, is not secure in the hands of your employees who can now access company trade secrets, crown jewels and precious customer data from anywhere. This potentially makes you in violation of industry regulations, standards and laws. When they leave all company data goes with them.

Business owners and executives alike must be aware of the risks, challenges and benefits of managed services and cloud adoption to their unique organisation. Ergo can assist in aligning the IT strategy to the corporate strategy, bringing you on the journey is then second nature to us. Realising the benefits in the promised land is also key however and we can show you what life will be like in terms of mobility, productivity, security, compliance and governance.
