Of Control and Value

Organizations moving to MSPs give up some control, so companies are just starting to trust them. It helps that MSPs sometimes provide a free tool for organizations to try out. Still, IT cannot give up control completely because people know they will be fired if the E-business site goes down.

While management platforms provide an all-encompassing solution for all operations, MSPs tend to be based on point products; offering help desk, performance management functions, and the like for people to use on a day-to-day basis. Thus, MSPs are generally niche players, largely providing a departmental rather than an enterprisewide solution.

MSPs' unique value is in providing functions that are difficult for an organization to do on its own, such as building enough storage space or performing security intrusion testing. And, although innovations are coming, companies using MSPs are already seeing value today.
