It is estimated that the budget invested by companies for IT infrastructure maintenance reaches up to half of their total budget, without considering the costs of hardware replacements. But if we take a deeper look, the truth is still different. On-site IT teams spend most of their time on routine maintenance and control activities, at the expense of more key aactivities that would enable them to strengthen their digital transformation strategy, that are instead possible if they decide to outsource the infrastructure.
What is managed infrastructure service?
The managed infrastructure service offers companies comprehensive management of on-premise, full cloud and hybrid infrastructures with the aim of increasing agility, resilience and optimizing investments. Specifically, this service focuses on:
- proper management and maintenance of hardware and software infrastructure

The ideal solution for companies that, aware that infrastructure management is not a strategic activity, prefer to focus internal resources to the development and growth of their core business.
