Do you find infographics as appealing as I do? As a small child, I was a huge fan of Dr. Seuss books. I still am, in fact. Hand me Green Eggs and Ham or Hop on Pop and I’m transported back to a big farmhouse in Ohio. To this day, reading How the Grinch Stole Christmas is one of my favorite holiday traditions.
Maybe that’s why I find infographics so compelling. Done well, they use interesting characters, eye-catching images and simple language to tell a story. Quite often you’ll also get some interesting statistics and data points thrown in to appease the analytical types like me.
There’s a growing buzz around Managed Services but I’m not entirely sure that it’s a well understood category. Managed Services for technology solutions run the gamut from Remote Monitoring and Management of on-premises hardware, to Private Cloud and X-as-a-Service offers. And there are a number of compelling reasons for organizations to consider these approaches as they look to enhance, expand or simply continue to operate their collaboration solutions while minimizing the impact to their internal IT resources.
Many of our organizations have a global workforce so these systems need to be up and running 24/7. End users are demanding better experiences which means someone needs to be monitoring them around the clock. At the same time, IT teams may be understaffed, lack the skillsets or simply don’t have enough time to support these demands. It can be quite expensive to run a follow-the-sun support staff internally whether for a collaboration solution, or any other category of technology.
The Managed Services infographic visually delivers some insights and alternatives to these challenges. It takes this broad and comprehensive topic and presents it in images with easily consumable and understandable soundbites to help you evaluate whether a Managed Service engagement with Polycom makes sense for your organization. It identifies potential pain points and offers a simple definition through analogy. It describes why Managed Services may be the best path forward and showcases some key benefits. It describes the options available from Polycom and highlights the key capabilities. But enough with all the words. Why don’t I stop typing and let you see for yourself because as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Perhaps that’s what makes infographics so powerful.
