In spite of increased popularity, widespread adoption, and availability of affordable MSP platforms such as OpManager MSP (shameless plug?) even today many MSPs still face problems convincing SMBs why they should outsource IT operations.
VitalNetworks (877-ITS-VITAL) is a successful MSP in greater Sacramento area. They have neatly expressed this point in their website by comparing VitalNetworks Team against an imaginary SysAdmin. Cool idea. Comparison ads, though humorous, brings out a lot of truth. Good job folks. [Remember the MAC-PC ads?]
ps – special thanks to Doug Heestand from vitalnetworks for giving me permission to write about their website. thanks Doug.
