Businesses are shifting more of their IT spend to Managed Services and Cloud. Managed Service Providers are successfully being able to deliver to their clients a wide range of services, from base infrastructure, platform and software to business processes. In order to be effective for the client businesses, the MSP needs to provide self-management, a consolidated bill, language and currency, and a consistent experience. In addition, clients are looking for a wide range and ever changing set of services, delivered reliably, fast, secure, and at a low cost.
