MSP Market a Shifting Landscape

If there's any constant with MSPs, it's change. Not that that's unusual in the technology industry, but MSPs seem to have changed models and strategies more in the last few years than most other companies in most categories. They even changed their name: remember Applications Service Providers?

Well, the change continues, as companies refine outsourcing strategies. The new thing, apparently, is great big companies using multiple MSPs rather than going with just one or two, and general flooding of competition in the MSP market. This article spells everything out in great detail, and although it's written by a Brit, old bean, from a UK perspective, it still makes for an interesting read. Or it will, anyway, until everything changes again.
