Dell: Solving the SMB IT Infrastructure Management Dilemma

Even small companies rely heavily on information technology anymore. Managing computers and networks to ensure they're reliable and always available is mission critical. For small businesses without inhouse IT staff, outsourcing management of IT is one viable option.

"Just like larger companies, small and medium businesses (SMBs) and organizations depend on information technology (IT) to help them succeed in an ever-changing world. Whether you’re running a small legal firm or a midsize construction company, you know that business performance is increasingly tied to your ability to keep IT systems operating at peak efficiency.

But for organizations with limited or no full-time IT personnel, IT management and maintenance can be a difficult job to do right. Routine system monitoring and maintenance can eat up time and resources that could be better used to help run the business more efficiently and make it more competitive. And when something does go wrong, it can be a nightmare—employees can’t get their jobs done, customers can’t get service, orders can’t be processed and supplies can’t be ordered."
