When you are selecting an IT MSP, there are several steps that you can take to ensure that the one you choose fits your needs. Some of these steps many require some extra effort, careful assessment of your needs, assets, and goals helps ensure that you get the most from any provider you select.
Assess current IT systems
By taking a thorough assessment of your current IT needs and costs, you unlock the first step to finding an MSP. All you need to understand is what infrastructure and workflows you need to avail managed services for and what resources you currently have, along with what your budget is for management. During this evaluation assessment, you should also pay attention to what your business goals are and align your expenses with the most feasible ones.
Request for an audit of your current systems
Once you have started to narrow down to a list of providers, you may want them to perform an audit of your systems. This can help you determine if they have the support and experience needed to manage your assets.
You want to make sure that providers are competent with any specialized hardware or software you are using or intend to use in the future. However, if the providers struggle to properly audit your systems it is unlikely that they will be able to support systems effectively.
Assess the scalability and feasibility
Start to evaluate the requirement of the services whenever you are assessing potential vendors, you will have to pay attention to the capacity of the services they can supply. Providers should be able to scale with you and ideally should have more bandwidth, service hours, and expertise than you need so that you can avail the maximum benefits. In case, they do not, then your provider might become the bottleneck reducing your capacity and performance that dulls out the purpose.
These kind of assessments are particularly important if you are planning big infrastructure changes in the near future such as cloud migration for which you will be needed to identify a provider that can support any growth that your organization goes through without sacrificing on your performance or coverage.
