Still Deciding if Managed Services is Right For You?


January 23, 2013

If your organization is considering the electronic exchange of data and information, it’s important to consider your needs today as well as in the future. In this easy to read eGuide you can explore the Top 5 Reasons that Managed Services might be the best choice for your company’s EDI, B2B and EAI needs.

In today’s fast-paced marketplace, organizations need the best method to electronically exchange information and manage growing volumes of data.

However, many companies are finding they have outgrown their existing solution or it is outdated and being taxed beyond its intended capabilities.  Ultimately, many are coming to the conclusion that they no longer want to manage the EDI function.

That’s why businesses-and their IT departments-are increasingly looking at outsourching or managed services as a viable alternative for their EDI, business-to-business (B2B) data management and enterprise application integration (EAI) needs.

In fact, according to a survey of 300 senior IT managers conducted by Forrester Research, 25% anticipate a greater focus on the use of managed services for transaction and document transport over the next few years.
