Managed IT Service
Network management MSP
Businesses operating in the IT landscape rely on their networks. But networks are complex and predisposed to constant evolution, and technological advancements only seem to increase their convolution. Modern-day networks house a deluge of physical and virtual components, employ advanced technologies, and are distributed across geographies, making them incredibly difficult to manage.
However, if not properly addressed, IT infrastructure management can impact a business on multiple fronts. Unfortunately, not all businesses possess enough resources, the necessary technical know-how, or a dedicated IT operations team to manage their networks. The only viable solution in sight for such businesses is managed service providers (MSPs).
Being an MSP offering network management services, you need a network management tool that provides a broad spectrum of functionalities. The right tool can help you manage physical, virtual, and hybrid networks, support devices from multiple vendors, and get complete visibility over distributed networks
The benefits of deploying network management software
- Proactively monitor your clients’ networks for faults. This helps you defuse issues before they blow out of proportion and lead to network downtime.
- Meet your SLAs on time to avoid penalties.
- Ease your technicians’ workload and provide enough scope for automation.
- Reduce your mean time to repair by quickly narrowing down the root cause of the problem and following with immediate troubleshooting.

The managed services model is the process of proactively outsourcing business processes to reduce the costs of maintaining a process in-house. Managed IT services is the outsourcing of your company’s information technology management and maintenance to an external provider. In the most simple terms, it’s paying another company to look after the IT matters in your business.
The two terms are often taken to mean the same thing; indeed, both models are closely related to each other with one marked difference between the two. In this case, outsourcing means sourcing service or a product from a third party without them managing the supplied solution on your behalf. In this instance, you may need to hire and maintain a team of in-house professionals to look after everything. Conversely, in managed services, the third party both supplies and operates the service – there is no need for an in-house team.
A managed services provider often referred to simply as an MSP, is a company external to your business responsible for providing IT services to you. Following are only a few examples of what is included in managed IT services. An MSP proactively works to maintain the technology in your business, offers remote IT support, creates IT disaster recovery plans and develops business continuity solutions. Connected Platforms is one of such managed IT service providers in Brisbane.
An MSP works remotely where possible. At Connected Platforms, where necessary, we will send technicians to your location as required.
One of the primary benefits when working with a Managed Services Provider is the IT cost reduction in your business. Working with an MSP improves your business operation by letting your staff focus on their work, instead of dealing with IT problems. An MSP is proactive; they anticipate problems and fix issues before they happen. For a predictable, ongoing fee, managed services enable your business to have ongoing, professional IT support without the need and the overheads of keeping a team of IT professionals on your payroll.
You might think that managed services are for big enterprises with large budgets, but you could not be more wrong. At Connected Platforms, we support SMEs primarily, that is small to medium enterprises. In other words, small businesses like yours!
