Executive Interview 1 – IT Director of a private equity bank
Interview transcript: “I believe the two most important factors which are affecting our decisions on using MSPs are cost benefits and Rural Social Cost. I think using MSPs has helped us to reduce internal resource constraints. Also, by increasing MSP services we can begin using our internal resources better by using our budget more wisely. Using MSPs has also helped us to reduce risk and protect our data, and I think this will continue in the next 12 to 18 months….”
Executive Interview 2 – Business Director at a banking consortium
Excerpt from the transcript: “We use MSP services as and when we need them as it is not realistic for us to have a fixed, in-house resource for some services. We use these services for projects like ERP, virtualization, SD WAN, Azure Stack, cloud migration or infrastructure. MSPs provide guidance helping us to embrace new technology.”
