The Shortfalls of Large Cloud Service Providers

By TMCnet Special Guest
In the age of the cloud, everything is up for change. The growing demand for cloud services is not only redefining the technology landscape, it's reshaping channel operations and disrupting traditional structures. And while big companies such as Amazon, Microsoft and Google offer brand-name services, they can't compete with local managed services providers (MSPs) in their customer centricity and the level of attention that these providers deliver to their end user clients.

Welcome to MSP Today

Managed Services Providers (MSPs) play an integral role in the reliability and dependability of IT services. Through network administration, support and centralized services for end customers, MSPs are able to manage IT for clients - off premise, and for a fraction of the cost. Managed services can include IP telephony, VPNs, monitoring and reporting, and more. MSPToday offers MSP professionals and the end user community up-to-date news and headlines on latest happenings in the Managed Services industry.
