6 Reasons to Leverage Managed Services: 4. Data Services

Your business’ data is a key component to its success, and with a managed service provider on your side, it becomes even more beneficial for you to put to use. As we carry on with our series describing the value of a relationship with a managed service provider, we’ll look at a few ways that your business can benefit from the data services that this relationship can provide.

Cloud Storage

As you might imagine, there is an amount of data generated every day by businesses that can be fairly described as “ludicrous.” While this data can prove valuable to a business that makes use of it, that business must first have a means of storing it.

This once meant that a business would set up its own internal storage space. While this was technically effective, there were a few drawbacks to this approach:

  • Expansion of storage space was limited by inefficient use of the space available
  • High power requirements, which made the office warmer
  • Expensive equipment with long, labor-intensive setup
  • Questionable warranties and problematic setups
  • Solutions required lots of oversight and maintenance

In addition to these factors, adopting on-site storage exclusively made redundancy a difficult goal - and many businesses just lacked the practical resources to do so properly. Managed services change all of this, establishing relationships between their clients and the various resources that an MSP has access to- including industry professionals and cloud storage providers.

Data Backup and Recovery

When your data is such a valuable commodity, a data disaster should be one of your largest concerns. As a part of our managed IT services platform, we offer a comprehensive data redundancy plan in the form of our Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR). 

Your typical onsite backup is under the same risks as the rest of your IT, but with a BDR, the IT provider will want to make sure that there are multiple backup copies of your data securely accessible to you if you ever need them. Keeping duplicates of your data in different places ensures that your provider has a working copy of your business’ data to restore from at any time. 

Making Your Data Work for You Via a Data Warehouse

Today’s businesses are looking to their data for answers more than ever before. In order to get the data sets necessary for a comprehensive business intelligence or business analytics platform to thrive, you first need to structure the data in a way where the analytics software can work. Setting up a data warehouse is just one service that the managed IT services provider can deliver in your business’ quest for more efficient and effective operations.
