Given the present competitive scenario, both Service Providers and Enterprises need to preserve profitability by focusing on core business and leaning towards lowered and more flexible expenses.
TLC networks and IT services are key strategic assets able to boost competitive value, but their growing complexity requires increasing skills and capabilities, that can be effectively found on the outside.
Service Providers and Enterprises can therefore evaluate the opportunity to implement an Outsourcing or Managed Services strategy, thus improving processes and achieving a reduction of personnel costs.
As far as a reliable and efficient partner is identified, outsourcing of Surveillance, Operations, Security and Maintenance functions can be applied both to network infrastructures and IT systems (including applications and databases).
Outsourcing their network and IT management services, Service Providers and Enterprises can enhance their business flexibility, while improving cost visibility and control. At the same time, they can carry out a CapEx to OpEx conversion, reducing the overall operational complexity. Quality of Service can be as well improved, as far as a fully dedicated skilled team of professionals is committed.
