Report: The Changing Role of MSPs in a Post-COVID World
COVID-19 now ranks amongst the worst epidemics in history, the latest in a long list of health crises the likes of which many of us have never experienced. As COVID-19 continues to rage on, there are two assertions we can take some comfort in— 1) It will eventually end; and 2) We will recover from the devastation it has caused.
As we all look to an uncertain future, we must now focus on ways to adapt. The ways we interact with each other and conduct business are changing, and the Managed Service Provider (MSP), is playing an ever-increasing, pivotal role.
Along with the many difficulties facing MSPs in 2021, there are also many opportunities to be had. There is a greater responsibility, as organisations have begun to rely on the MSP more than ever before. In this article, we seek to examine some of the most daunting challenges MSPs are facing, how they are rising to meet those challenges head on and what advantages have come to light during the pandemic.
The findings from this article are a product of one of our CEO round-tables, where we brought together some of the brightest and most forward-thinking minds from around the UK virtually to discuss the overwhelming impact of COVID-19.
