For many organizations, the most challenging element of the cloud is not related to the technology it delivers, but to how to best monitor and manage consumption. To remedy this challenge, many of today’s market leaders partner with a cloud Managed Service Provider (MSP) that can deliver the right people, processes and technologies to ensure optimized cloud consumption.
The practical reality of running an internal IT organization is that it is often economically unfeasible to acquire the expertise needed to manage all of the technologies that support your business. Individuals with strong competencies in high-demand technologies can be difficult to find and afford, and so the costs associated with staffing internal IT resources becomes prohibitive. Working with a cloud MSP offers cost-efficient access to the right people at the right time.
Great service organizations are not created in a day. Whether internal or external, high-performing teams that consistently deliver excellent work do so because of experience. They have already made the critical mistakes, learned the best path to success, and developed the culture and operational structures needed to realize better outcomes. The cloud MSP is no different. Their depth of experience gives them clarity on when and how to manage critical, complex moments, such as identifying and managing rogue consumption.
Hundreds of well-funded organizations are racing to establish market leadership within the cloud monitoring and management platform sector. It is a complex challenge, as these companies need to architect and build enterprise-ready platforms that can track multitudes of instances for multi-tenant / multi-account portfolios, within different public clouds (Azure, AWS, Google) in real or near-real time.
While this range of platform options drives competition, it can be difficult to know which is best for your organization. Bad bets on the wrong technology can become very costly in terms of budget, performance and opportunity cost. In many cases, the smartest decision is to partner with an MSP. A core part of their practice is to know what technology is best in class and what products provide superior outcomes in cloud monitoring and management.
