Since the early 2000s, MSPs have been part of the technology channel in a period when Internet speeds and uptime reliability reached a level acceptable enough to enable easier remote management of decentralized computer networks. Long touted as the natural progression for technology resellers intending to shift beyond the transactional world of hardware sales, managed services are evolving rapidly to keep pace with the complexities of today’s technology business landscape. In a recent study, the managed service provider industry was estimated to reach $ 282 billion by 2023, which may be a 56 percent surge from what the market saw in 2021. Pair that evolution with the last two years of unprecedented pandemic upheaval, and we find an MSP ecosystem in 2022 that is ping-ponging sharply between excitement and worry for the future. Furthermore, as businesses venture into newer and emerging technologies to perform their day-to-day operations more efficiently, an increasing number of organizations are choosing to partner with managed service providers to orchestrate an integrated flow of multiple business solutions.
