As organizations are increasingly turning to managed service providers (MSPs) to handle elements of their IT needs, Bay Pointe believes in the collaborative arrangement with the internal IT department to meet the challenges and objectives they currently face. Although only 3-in-10 organizations have any of their IT in the hands of an MSP, more than two thirds of those companies say they have used the services of an outside IT firm within the last 12 months. It is also important to note that while companies are increasingly relying on outside providers for part of their IT needs, Bay Pointe compliments rather than replaces internal IT.
