Client outcomes: our most important metric
Co-managed IT blends the convenience and strategic framework of an internal IT team with the support and comprehensive knowledge of an expert managed services provider. This allows the internal team to augment their service capabilities with a partner and more quickly achieve their goals.
You should consider co-managed IT when:
- You are rethinking the value of your internal IT.
- You are entering a growth phase that requires expanded IT support but you do not want to increase headcount by hiring.
- You need to delegate day-to-day maintenance so your internal team can focus on revenue-generating activities.
- There are knowledge gaps in your current IT staff that need to be mitigated.
Challenges arise when your co-managed IT partner has not properly reviewed governance with your team. Delegation of duties at the start of the relationship, in addition to escalation paths and documented processes, allows for the mitigation of these issues early on and ensures that end users and systems are not negatively impacted. Co-managed environments require constant and clear communications from both partners, ensuring they are working toward a common goal on a shared path.
