How to Get Started with Co-Managed IT

By Courtney Heinbach

For managed service providers (MSPs) looking to grow their business or take advantage of new revenue streams, consider co-managed IT services. MSPs who are used to serving any and all IT needs for their clients can broaden their service offering with co-managed IT services, which is when an MSP teams up with an internal IT team to achieve its IT goals.

With a co-managed IT offering, MSPs can broaden their target market beyond businesses who fully outsource their IT needs and complement the skills of a business’s internal IT team. For example, a business may have internal IT staff to manage day-to-day IT needs like workstation troubleshooting but lean on the MSP for a business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) strategy or management of their cloud productivity services, such as Microsoft or Google.
