NOC to revitalize a service provider’s business

Enterprise-class NOC

Netenrich helps a service provider build scalable, agile enterprise service model to improve their NOC (network operations center).

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The partner, a leading systems integrator (SI) and cloud services provider, helps its customer move towards software-defined, hyper converged and hybrid cloud infrastructure models to drive IT transformation, deliver ITaaS and focus on business innovation. Headquartered in the north-east of USA with regional offices across the New England region, they now served 500 clients and business of all sizes. They also revolutionized customer support by delivering the first true flat-fee, unlimited network support program for their customers. In the last decade, market trends highlighting the popularity of IT Services Providers pushed them to change their focus from selling hardware and professional services to providing managed services with recurring revenue.

 

CLIENT CHALLENGES

The partner acquired another Managed Services Provider (MSP) business to build a recurring revenue stream with high profit margins by leveraging their existing services infrastructure and customer portfolio.

Challenges with business expansion:

The newly acquired MSP's focus was on the SMB market, and its existing technologies were designed for small businesses, due to which the partner faced challenges in adopting complex IT environments and scaling into the enterprise market without adding headcount and overhead costs. They also acquired legacy tools which make it difficult to gain visibility across the IT towers.

Challenges with their NOC:

Their existing SMB NOC business was not adequately optimized leading to high operating costs, lower margins, inferior skill sets, high mean-time-to-repair (MTTR), missed SLAs, and low availability - all of which contributed to client and employee attrition, and loss of recurring revenue. The lack of a robust, repeatable process and limited automation resulted in inconsistent service delivery exacerbated by the fact that the NOC team had to deliver their services manually.

Challenges with their IT operations:

Additionally, the existing IT operations practice comprised of separate groups of IT Operations experts monitoring and managing various end-clients using multiple RMM tools, none of which were integrated. It was proving difficult to check the health and performance of the IT infrastructure of multiple clients, in the absence of a unified monitoring dashboard. The partner's in-house IT department was experiencing high employee attrition due to the inefficient use of skilled personnel. In the absence of a proactive management, firefighting problems took center stage leading to delays in projects and postponement.
