Top Managed Services Boosting Business Growth
Fremont, CA: The world of today revolves around technology. Almost no business can thrive if it does not take advantage of technological advancements. Managed services are effective tools for differentiating one's company and freeing up time and creative energy to focus on core business development tasks.
The best way to ensure success is to tailor managed services to the specific needs of the company. Chances are, a company relies heavily or exclusively on information technology operations. Minor daily service outages can be difficult and cause larger problems later if they are not properly managed in a timely manner.
Let us look at the top managed services that support business growth:
The potential of cloud computing has unfolded before our eyes over the last few decades. Its capabilities and power are now so intertwined with how we work and think about the technology that a new era is emerging. The cloud's on-demand computing power and data management make it easier than ever to share data, which came in handy while working remotely.
Cloud automation entails automating the entire cloud workflow and cloud-native processes. It is advantageous if a company utilizes cloud automation services from the three most popular cloud providers, Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Microsoft Azure. However, if one wants to accelerate success, one should also use infrastructure-enhancing tools like Puppet, Terraform, or Ansible (types of infrastructure as code, or IAC) to reduce context loss, human error and configuration drifts.
Last year was marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, and while the vaccine is our light at the end of the tunnel, with the entire world working primarily online, fears of a cyber pandemic are on the rise. Massive cyberattacks were attempted all over the world, with some of them causing actual damage, such as leaked credentials. According to a recent report, the most common types of attacks are denial-of-service (hacking), social breaches, credential theft, and errors.
