Make the Move to Managed Services
The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the trend for organisations to seek outsourced managed services to support their digital transformation, presenting significant opportunities for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to enter the market and grow their service portfolios.
The global managed services market size was estimated at USD 215.14 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 552.35 billion by 2028, with some analysts expecting up to 45% of organisations around the world to opt for managed services in the next 18 months. Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) are in particularly high demand.
This rapid growth can be attributed to a number of factors: small and mid-sized organisations who lack internal IT expertise but need advanced technologies to boost their competitiveness; a general lack of specialised skills – particularly in key sectors such as cyber security, cloud, analytics and AI; and a sense of urgency among organisations around the globe to transform and innovate.
