IBM i managed services are the easiest way to keep your IBM i datacenter properly maintained. Let’s face it – OS management tasks are not only tedious, but also time consuming. Delegating these tasks elsewhere can free up a team of developers and allow them to focus more on business-critical applications. There are plenty of additional reasons why IBM i management can be extraordinarily beneficial. For example, some providers offer backup services and business continuity, which can help keep data safe and secure.
What can investing in managed services help accomplish for your company? There are a number of things it can help you do, including:
- Shift to business-critical workloads
- Eliminate backup windows
- Enhance or replace business continuity
- Change the way your hardware is managed
- Move a legacy environment to archive
- Accomplish a short-term testing or development need
