9 Keys to Selecting a Right Cloud Managed Services Provider (MSP)
Amid the pandemic, the cloud has emerged as a haven for businesses to survive and thrive. Now, more than ever, organizations are shutting down their on-premises data center and moving to the cloud. However, migrating to the cloud is easier said than done.
Without a deep understanding of the cloud environment, one may end up in the crosshairs of technical debt. Organizations require a host of specialized skills and tools to harness the true potential of the cloud. Making matters worse are the finite in-house resources which could potentially stifle your cloud adoption speed. This is where a Cloud Managed Services Provider (MSP) proves to be valuable.
Not only a Cloud MSP helps you migrate your legacy IT to the cloud but also manages your resources in the cloud more efficiently and securely. An MSP bridges the gap between the company and the cloud or, more accurately, between the IT resources in the cloud and those residing in the organization’s data centers.
