Our IT team lacks the specialized skills and tools to meet our needs.
We can’t increase our headcount right now, but we need more IT people.
We’re overloaded with tech issues and staff burnout is a real risk.
We’re struggling with a big IT project and need help.

What are co-managed IT services?

These services are for internal IT teams that have gaps in their capacity or expertise. They cover functions like help desks and network management, freeing internal teams to focus on more complex projects. Or, if a project or problem becomes too much for an internal team to handle, the co-managed provider can take over with their deeper expertise and resources. Either way, co-managed IT support is an extremely time- and cost-efficient way for an organization to augment its in-house IT resources. 

Who’s a good fit for DTS co-managed IT services?

SMBs often have limited internal IT resources and can benefit from partnering with an external provider to access specialized expertise, 24/7 support, and strategic guidance without the cost of a full in-house IT team.

Rapid growth may lead to an urgent need to scale infrastructure, manage increased workloads, and implement new technologies. Co-managed IT services provide these resources and expertise during expansion phases.

Operating in regulated industries, such as healthcare, finance, or legal, means facing robust IT security standards. Co-managed IT offers specialized support to ensure adherence to multiple industry-specific regulations.

Businesses that require continuous monitoring, proactive maintenance, and help desk resources can benefit from the comprehensive coverage provided by co-managed IT support, ensuring minimal downtime and rapid issue resolution.

Digital transformation initiatives, including cloud migration, automation, or modernization of IT infrastructure, can leverage co-managed IT services to overcome complex technological challenges and ensure a smooth transition.

Organizations across various industries and stages of growth can benefit from co-managed IT, whether it’s to bolster their capabilities, address specific challenges, or enhance overall operational efficiency.

Frequently asked

Co-managed IT refers to a collaborative approach to IT management, where an organization partners with an external IT services provider to augment its in-house IT capabilities. The internal IT team and the external IT provider work together to deliver comprehensive IT support to the internal users, or they collaborate on a single, large project until it is completed. A co-managed IT services contract typically involves a shared responsibility for managing and maintaining the organization’s IT infrastructure, systems, and applications.

By leveraging the expertise and resources of a co-managed IT provider, organizations can quickly deploy, manage, and optimize technologies without the need to expand their headcount.
