    Sourcing and integrating managed services

    By Bob Tarzey and Clive Longbottom


    Reliable software applications are as critical for mid-market businesses as they are for enterprises.

    Choosing the right platform is the key to ensuring that applications are available, scalable, cost effective, compliant and secure.

    With the growing variety of physical, virtual and cloud-based platforms to choose from for application deployment, many will value the advice of third party experts as they plan the evolution of legacy applications or deploy new ones.

    This report looks at the issues that mid-market IT and business managers need to take into account when deciding how to deploy applications and when they should consider turning to managed service providers (MSP) for resources and advice.

    This research should be of interest to those who are focused on delivering their organisation’s core value proposition, whilst also considering how this is best underpinned by IT.
