Secure Managed Services: Game-Changer for Business Growth

The digital landscape continues to evolve as consumer's loyalty grows stronger for businesses that are keeping pace. The better a company is, the more loyal a customer will be. It makes sense. To stay on the winning track, or to remain relevant in the modern world, business leaders are relying on Secure Managed Services now more than ever. 

Digital transformation is a term used to describe the transformation of a business by leveraging the full potential of technology in order to accelerate business growth. Stemming from virtualization, hosted applications, updated process and business strategies, Digital Transformation can be overwhelming without the right plan in place. 

Now more than ever, it's imperative that businesses have a comprehensive strategy in place to ensure they're maximizing their IT spend—amplifying their competitive edge as well as protecting against emerging security threats.

Aligning Business Priorities

With the ever-evolving reliance on technology to maintain and improve relevancy, Digital transformation has become a bigger priority for business leaders. The challenge businesses are facing is the distribution and prioritization of the IT budget. According to a recent Gartner study, many IT decision makers are still investing 70-75% of their annual IT budget to aging and legacy systems, infrastructure and operations.

After 20 years working in network operations and a decade of tech consulting and training, I decided it was time to add my two cents to the IT world. Even though retirement is fun, I can't shake my personal obligation of helping businesses navigate the constant changes in technology.
