Managed Technology and Hosting with a Partner Does Not Mean Giving Up Ownership of Your Tech
Managed technology and hosting is critical post launch for any website, application, or digital technology. This is possibly the most overlooked post launch service, which is crucial and typically off the radar. Here’s why having BBG not only create, but manage and maintain your tech is helpful, cost effective and keeps your technology running smoothly.
Expertise and Specialization
Managing with a partner does not mean giving up ownership, access, or rights to your technology.
BBG spent two years creating an organized, efficient, established ecosystem for managing tech from code repository, deployment, staging, and live environments, to permissioned access, security monitoring, ongoing support and updating. All lead to a healthy digital environment and smooth hosting and oversight.
Typically web oversight falls outside of a typical IT, or technology teams expertise, and is not part of their job responsibilities. Even at an enterprise-level, BBG has found that we are more efficient and retain the expertise (as an internal team may change resourcing).
BBG knows your ecosystem and is ready to help as issues arise, technology changes, your company requires updates, and more.
Managed technology and hosting infrastructure in-house can be expensive, as it requires hiring and training skilled personnel, purchasing and maintaining hardware, and investing in security measures.
A single IT specialist costs upwards of $100,000/year. BBG has done the research and provides enterprise-level infrastructure and oversight at a fraction of the cost.
Scalability and Flexibility
As your business grows, your technology needs will change.
With third-party management, you can easily scale infrastructure resources based on demand. This flexibility ensures that you have the necessary computing power, storage, and bandwidth at any given time, without having to invest in additional hardware or deal with complex setups yourself.
Combined with the retained expertise on the BBG end, we can act on changing needs proactively and effectively.
Reliability and Uptime
Throughout our Managed Technology ecosystem, BBG has created redundant systems, backup solutions, and proactive monitors in place to ensure high availability and minimal downtime. By entrusting your technology management to our team, you can have peace of mind knowing that your important data, applications, and services are in good hands.
Occasionally things happen. Technology may change. Web standards may shift. Accessibility requirements may present themselves. We also have processes in place for when things don’t go right. Sites may go down. System errors are clear in our system. Easy to find, easy to fix.
Timing is sensitive here, and BBG understands this. We are there to help.
Security and Compliance
Data breaches and cyber threats are a growing concern for businesses. BBG has various levels of robust security measures in place, permission-based access, intrusion detection systems, regular vulnerability assessments, and data encryption. BBG utilizes enterprise-level technology tools with industry-specific regulations, ensuring that your data and infrastructure meet the required security and compliance standards.
In summary, having a third party manage your technology infrastructure can save you time, money, and effort while providing you with expert support, scalable resources, reliability, and enhanced security. It allows you to focus on your core business activities and leave the technical aspects to professionals who have the necessary expertise and tools to ensure smooth operations and growth.
