For the modern chief information officer (CIO), maintaining a competitive enterprise is becoming more challenging every day. According to Gartner, IT budgets declined by 8.1 percent in 2009 and have stayed relatively flat this year, increasing by only 1.3 percent worldwide, which placed them at 2005 levels.
More and more, CIOs are discovering that by turning to managed hosting services they can curb the capital and operational costs associated with the data centre, free up staff to focus on core business and make their organisations more agile in the face of changing market conditions.
This whitepaper discusses why moving in-house data centre operations to a hosted service provider can take the pressure off your IT department, cut costs and free you to focus on strategic projects that add real value to the business and help grow market share.
