Managed Service Providers (MSPs) On Path to Deliver $1 Trillion in IT Value

Global Tracker by AMI-Partners indicates MSPs are rapidly expanding the breadth of their technology products and business solution offerings, as they respond to strong demand for cloud and managed services across vertical industries worldwide.

 October 18, 2017 – New York, NY – AMI-Partners’ 2017 annual worldwide tracking study of the global MSP market indicates MSPs are aggressively gaining share of small and medium businesses (SMBs) and large enterprise IT budgets by providing an ever-expanding portfolio of technology and business-related managed services.

This exceptionally comprehensive study – conducted with 950 MSPs across Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific – details how MSPs are transforming, managing, and growing their businesses, while delivering increasing value to their customers by partnering with a broad array of hardware, software, tools and services vendors. As a result, by 2021 MSPs are expected to deliver 25% of the $4 Trillion that SMBs and large enterprises will spend on IT products and services globally.

 Expanding Solutions and Vertical Industry Coverage

 “MSPs have quickly evolved their offerings from simple storage, security, and computing power to higher margin and premium managed services that include e-discovery, business continuity, cybersecurity, applications management, analytics, IoT, big data, and artificial intelligence, among others,” said Deepinder Sahni, SVP AMI-Partners.

“Those MSPs winning and gaining share are more in tune with their customers’ business challenges, especially vertical industry-specific issues,” said Andy Bose, CEO AMI-Partners. “This is paramount, for highly regulated industries, such as Healthcare and Finance, where customers demand customized security, disaster recovery and compliance controls,” Bose continued.

Partnerships with Technology and Tool Vendors Key to Success

Despite rapid growth, MSPs operate a complex business model – one that relies on multiple IT solutions, platforms, and service delivery and management tools from a myriad of technology partners. This model requires constant new learning to stay abreast of the technology evolution. The typical MSP uses over 11 different tools to monitor and deliver managed services, and may partner with upwards of 15 individual technology and platform vendors to architect tailored solutions for their customers.

As a result, MSPs are highly selective and prefer working with technology and tool vendors that can meet their selection criteria. This includes a mix of product capabilities and marketing programs that can drive differentiation, business agility, and enhanced customer experiences.

Additional insights provided by AMI’s 2017 WW MSP Study highlight the VAR-to-MSP business transformation currently underway. Small and mid-sized VARs are in the midst of transforming their businesses into the MSP model. The study indicates that upon planning and launching managed services, it takes around 12 to 14 months on average to attain profitability.

MSPs and their technology partners can leverage the rich insights from this study to better position themselves for success in this quickly changing technology landscape.  Key steps VARs need to systematically execute, along with various KPIs they need to watch in this business transformation, are highlighted in AMI playbooks based on insights from this study.

Moreover, AMI’s 2017 Worldwide MSP Study provides global, regional, and country-specific insights and analysis, including market sizing for a comprehensive set of managed services, broken out by vertical industry and employee size segments.

Moreover, the use of our product can integrate with any EHR suite to use as a downtime EHR platform in the event of a disruption in service.”

Intuition HIT Solutions, a division of EMR Support Group, LLC, was founded in 2007 as an independent software support company for McKesson Horizon/Paragon end users.

“Time is for Dragonflies and Angels” by J.M. Erickson Win’s Gold at Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards

J.M. Erickson’s Time is for Dragonflies and Angels wins gold medal in the fiction anthology category at the Readers’ Favorite 2017 International Book Award Contest.

Time is for Dragonflies and Angels is a collection of flash science fiction and novellas that embraces the ideas of multi-universes and dimensions, critical decisions and judgments, and human struggles associated with racism and dystopian societies.

Divine Zape, Reader’s Favorite Reviewer describes this award-winning anthology well:

Time is for Dragonflies and Angels by J.M. Erickson is a beautiful offering for fans of sci-fi and fantasy who are also into short stories and novellas. The collection features powerful themes, including parallel universes, man’s struggle to come to grips with his human predicament, racial discrimination, and many more. This collection has a lot to offer readers with diverse tastes. Those who enjoy dystopian themes will feel very comfortable with Rogue Event featuring the game that many people are familiar with, the struggle for control where a select group wants to control the workings of the lives of others. Read about a widower and an autistic young man in a one-of-a-kind adventure to find meaning in Recount Our DreamsThe Gray is a moving tale that features the mechanics of bias, of racism, and beautifully portrays how a group can elect itself as the judge of others based on what makes them look different. And there is more!”

Time is for Dragonflies and Angels has garnered more critical praise:

Time is for Dragonflies and Angels, the new book from sci fi author J.M. Erickson is a collection of short stories in the tradition of the classic science fiction writing compendiums, evoking well-loved writers such as Aldous Huxley and George Orwell, with clear influences from other giants of the genre as we go along.” – Self-Publishing Review

“This book falls into that rare group that tells unexpected and original stories that don’t rely on cliché’s or overused plot devices – nice, especially in the Sci-Fi genre where it is hard to find really unique plotlines and genuine character development.” – Indie Book Reviewers

“In every story, the author displays bright moments of humor alongside darker bits of existential dread. His stories succeed on two levels, both as diverting bits of adventure and as deeper commentary on our modern life.” – Pacific Book Reviewer

About the Author

In addition to creating the Birds of Flight series and the other award-winning science fiction stories Future Prometheus and Intelligent Design, Erickson holds a BA in psychology and sociology from Boston College, a master’s degree in psychiatric social work from the Simmons School of Social Work, and post-graduate certification in post-trauma treatment from Boston University School of Social Work. Certified in cognitive behavioral treatment and a post-trauma specialist, he is also a senior instructor of psychology and counseling at Cambridge College and a senior therapist in a clinical group practice in the Merrimack Valley, Massachusetts.
