Luckily, today’s MSPs are up to the challenge. In response to customer needs, MSPs are adding cloud services to their standard portfolios, developing intellectual property and rolling out tailored cloud service plans.

Fifty-eight percent of those companies report finding better prices when they work with third-party service providers.
