Why Managed IT is like “A Game of Thrones”

While it’s sunny and warm in Honolulu, winter has truly arrived in the Seven Kingdoms. A lot of people are eagerly anticipating the next season of Game of Thrones. We wonder how many of them have considered how a Game of Thrones is like Managed IT Services. They might sound lands apart, but there is one big comparison between the two.

In a Game of Thrones, the Seven Kingdoms battle for the iron throne, while, in the North, a greater threat is growing from the army of the dead.


The Seven Kingdoms of IT

Your in-house IT staff is represented by the seven kingdoms. They have trained hard and are working to achieve significant goals.

For an IT department, this might be monitoring the network, dealing with system errors, or even just setting up new accounts and resetting passwords. These are essential tasks, but they can prevent your IT staff focusing on things that could grow the business and fight off competition.

The massive Army of the Dead, however, represents competition from other companies like yours, whether they are new entrants to the market or they have been long-established. Or the threat could be a change in technology that is disrupting the market. Or it could be losing sight of your business’s core objectives and taking your business in the wrong direction.

Your IT staff should have the opportunity to look at the bigger picture and prepare your business.


We Know Something, Jon Snow

When you use Managed IT Services, you free up your IT staff to focus on threats to your business. Outsourced IT staff can manage and monitor your network proactively, dealing with problems before they become more serious.

Instead of fighting fires internally, therefore, your team will be able to get involved in product development or system enhancements. They can leave routine but essential maintenance to managed services, while they take your business to the next level.

We like to see ourselves as the Jon Snow of the Managed IT world. We will help you fight the bigger fight. And we might have a dragon or two, too.
