Third Party Maintenance for Cloud Service Providers
Thursday 27 September 2018
The cloud services market is tough. Increasingly, third party maintenance providers are becoming a resource. There are several reasons why.
A reputation for reliability is essential in the CSP market. Even minor downtime can lead to customer flight. Data centre design, multiple redundant internet connections, hardware choices, and facilities management all have their role. The right third party maintenance provider can also contribute.
There is a talent gap in IT. A robust job market and a limited workforce trained in STEM fields has CSPs scrambling to find the employees they need.
Leveraging our team means a CSP needn’t find, recruit, and pay a premium to have experts join their team. They can concentrate investments on staffing other parts of the organisation.
A final consideration is cost. OEM contracts on IT equipment are expensive, and they sometimes increase in cost as equipment ages. Third party maintenance agreements are priced an average of 60% below OEM support, yet the best providers include more features. More support, less cost, and longer hardware lifespans can make a big difference in the bottom line. If these advantages, in turn, allow a CSP to deliver a more cost-effective product or to invest in innovation, it might be the solution required to win in today’s marketplace.
