Managed Hosting Services – Your Golden Opportunity?
It’s becoming more and more difficult to grow your business by offering traditional hosting products. Today, the way customers buy technology is at odds with how most hosters have sold it up till now. Moreover, hosting has become a commodity. The market is dominated by a couple of global players who are competing on price – because they can.
So, what do you do if you don’t want to – or simply can’t – compete on price? Then you compete on value, of course.
How Managed Hosting Services boost your value
Add managed hosting services to your standard hosting product portfolio and your strategy quickly becomes feasible and valuable. Here are the top three reasons why.
A lot of technical expertise already exists inside hosting companies so this will undoubtedly lead to a reduction in the time it takes a product to move from conception to being available for sale.
Both enterprises and SMBs often struggle to evaluate the right digital transformation strategies, migrate workloads, manage and secure infrastructure and networks and also have the time to identify a suitable backup and recovery plan.
According to Markets and Markets, the global market for managed hosting services will grow to $193.34bn by 2019 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.5%.
Additionally, according to 451 Research, users of SaaS and application hosting services will spend 59% on managed services. Enter – you and your business.
Why you should offer Managed Hosting Services too
Offering managed third-party cloud services is a very popular trend with huge growth potential, no doubt. But don’t limit your business to this trend alone as there are more exciting opportunities to stand out. You can add value through managed services, grow your business and make your customers extremely happy.
