Industry analyst IDC predicts that the global economic recession will have a dramatic impact on small and mid-sized companies. But that doesnâ€™t means these companies will stop spending on information technology (IT).
â€œSmall and mid-sized businessesâ€¦will be increasingly interested in the productivity gains made possible by advanced technology,â€ said Raymond Boggs, vice president of SMB research at IDC. â€œNew mobile communications solutions, videoconferencing, and online resources will be especially attractive, as will alternative approaches to technology acquisition and deployment.â€
The reason, says IDC, is that these advanced technologies can help reduce costs and provide growing businesses with an important competitive edge.
One way to gain access to these advanced IT technologies is through Managed Services, which offers smaller companies access to and quick deployment of affordable best-of-breed technologies. Managed Services is cost-effective because it offers companies a way to make use of precious capital by fulfilling their IT needs on a pay-per-use basis.
Who can benefit from Managed Services?
- Smaller companies that donâ€™t employ dedicated IT staff but want to take advantage of the latest developments in security, backups, messaging, and business communications.
- Mid-size companies with some in-house IT staff that want to see productivity gains among by eliminating problems and downtime.
