Cloud managed services


Leverage our brawn, bots, and brains for the heavy lifting

Reliable, proactive, and cost-effective IT managed services do exist

Today’s IT departments are often a patchwork of permanent and contract staff, project-specific collaborators, vendors, and more. Keeping these resources aligned is challenging. Partnering with a strategic, responsive managed services partner (MSP) can be transformative!

Engaging an MSP is not akin to abdicating control. With the right MSP, outsourcing some IT services can be truly empowering. (Just ask our clients!)

Collaborating with an MSP enables in-house teams to focus on strategic projects, share the burden of ongoing operations, and gain access to the latest management tools and techniques with one monthly invoice.

But how do you find an MSP with industry knowledge, a client-first approach, credentials, and an unbiased vendor approach? HGS Digital has these qualities in spades!

Streamline your IT operations with our cloud managed services

In conversations with clients, we hear about the pressure to deliver improved user experiences. We hear about resource and skills gaps. We hear about privacy, security, audits, and compliance. We hear about competitiveness, digital transformation, and budget restrictions—sometimes in one sentence!

Cloud can address many of these challenges and lighten the on-prem burden. But even cloud services need to be managed to stay current, compliant, stable, and secure. But the real questions are “who?” and “how?”

HGS Digital can take ownership of part or all of the management of your environment. Not only can we manage your cloud services, we can help to optimize operations to allow you to focus on activities that drive true business value.
