Technology as a Service is more important than ever

by | Feb 23, 2021

Let’s take a moment to applaud all the IT heroes out there, those who have kept our businesses running, workforces productive and data secure through the ups and downs of the past year.

Positivity’s back and as lockdown lifts over the coming months businesses will be thinking what type of working environment they want long-term. Whatever the format, flexible and agile IT solutions are on the agenda.

This is where technology-as-a-service (TaaS) comes in.

Some years ago, IT companies were viewing the TaaS era as an inflection point – a sudden moment in time when companies would suddenly change how they purchased, managed and paid for IT services.

In fact, the adoption of TaaS – enabled by high-speed connectivity, low-cost data storage and micro-services – has been more of a longer journey, a steady migration leading to managed services which are carefully implemented depending on business criticality, cost, control and suitability.

The past 12 months have highlighted the immense benefits that TaaS delivers to businesses eager to access cutting-edge technology solutions and services without the need to constantly invest in IT infrastructure.

Among the many advantages:

  • Delivery of the optimum networks and server technologies
  • Access to fully licensed upgradeable software
  • 24/7 monitoring and maintenance
  • Dedicated technical support
  • Advanced cyber security
  • Training
  • Easily-on-the-bottom-line subscription models

The ability to scale up or down as requirements change as well as tapping into unparalleled technical expertise for a fraction of the cost of in-house specialists has been an essential crutch for companies.

But more importantly, with a technology-as-a-service mentality at the core of your IT strategy, businesses have been able to match their IT systems and solutions to their own strategic goals, Covid or no Covid.

This has allowed them not just to adjust, but to keep growing and thriving, and as time goes on, it’s a strategy that will serve them well as they embrace the hybrid-office models of the future.
