new pressures are emerging that challenge the tradition of in-house data hosting. these include the rising cost of power and cooling; the heightened risk from corporate corruption, fraud, terrorism and environmental issues; increasing regulatory pressure such as sarbanes-oxley, rohs, weee and ifrs; and the growing importance of green it and the associated penalties of the new green tax.
Increased focus on total cost of ownership (TCO)
the progressive shift of power costs from facilities to it budgets is nudging companies to re-think the total cost of in-house ownership versus the managed service alternative. previously hidden costs are now being exposed: infrastructure costs such as backup power generators and fuel storage; chillers; security systems; fire suppression; racks; servers and cabling. more importantly,
the cost of redundancy for most of these components (for example, backup generators for backup generators) and the rolling cost of their upgrade, replacement and insurance. the list goes on.
From upfront cost to affordable monthly charge
independent editorial is increasingly citing the simple business logic of leveraging the managed service providers huge investment in its industrial grade infrastructure to guarantee business continuity, address regulatory issues and ensure data security compliance. it also commends the commercial benefit by smoothing spend from painful upfront cost (capex) to affordable monthly payments (opex).
the school of thought that places it & communications as a pay-as-you-grow utility is unquestionably gathering pace.

these include aspects such as the optimisation of operations support systems (oss), crm and erp. it is perhaps no surprise then that many forward-looking it departments now see managed services as an enabler & accelerator and not as threat to be pushed back.
