Managed Network Services: The TCO Payoff

Three out of four midsize businesses describe themselves as network dependent. While network-based business solutions can enhance productivity, market velocity and customer relationships, concerns about operating complexity, reliability and security challenge IT professionals at midsized companies.

ACG Research conducted two use cases that find managed network services pay off by delivering a superior total cost of ownership (TCO) than an internally staffed alternative.
