More than 400 IT professionals responded to the survey, ranking infrastructure management, security, data center consolidation, application acceleration and cloud solutions as their top five IT infrastructure priorities.Four out of 5 respondents report that they want more from their MSPs, with more value for the price, proactive management and faster response time topping the overall list of desired improvements. “Virtela is especially keen to listen to and meet the growing needs of multinational companies, which is why we undertake this survey annually and ensure our investments continue to align with their priorities.“These survey results validate that there is room for all managed service providers to better understand the needs of their customers, improve service delivery and ensure timely communication when issues surface,” said Virtela CEO B. We are committed to delivering innovative services in a timely and flexible fashion that consistently raise the industry bar on customer satisfaction.” The survey gauged multinational enterprises’ level of satisfaction with current MSPs across four key categories: service offerings, service delivery, service management and pricing/billing.
Timely Service Delivery: The top demands of these IT decision makers are timely communication of status and issues, faster installation intervals as well as service implementation times.
Proactive Service Management: Multinationals report that proactive notification of issues and better response times are the most critical areas in need of improvement, followed by improving mean time to repair rates. Together they will present the key IT imperatives and managed services issues, and discuss how fast-growing multinational companies are successfully addressing those needs today, such as a case study of leading global publishing software provider Quark Inc. Registrants will also receive an ebook featuring the full survey results on March 1, 2011.
More Value and Easier Pricing: Survey participants noted they would like to see more value for the price of their managed services, plus receive price quotes in a timely manner and in formats which are easier to understand.
