A Codestone IT Managed Services Assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of an organisation’s IT infrastructure, processes, and services to ensure optimal performance, security and efficiency. The ITMS Assessment helps identify areas for improvement and opportunities for enhancing the overall IT management strategy.
The IT Managed Services Assessment typically covers a range of topics such as:
Current Platform Review
Understand the current platform, user base, hardware infrastructure, Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, Microsoft 365, policies, licensing and related elements.
Engage in discussions with key stakeholders and users, ensuring representation from a diverse and relevant sample.
Service Ticket Review
Review existing service tickets, whether originating internally or from third-party sources, as an integral aspect of the Assessment.
Change Management Processes
Assessment of change management processes and change request procedures, impact analysis and communication strategies.
Top Recurring Issues
Identification of a range of issues that consistently surface and require attention such as system performance, security vulnerabilities, user experience, compliance concerns and any persistent trends affecting the overall effectiveness and efficiency of the managed service.
Future Organisation Plans
Upcoming initiatives such as office relocation, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system changes, and organisational growth, within the framework of an IT Managed Services Assessment.
An examination of the requirements for coverage and Service Level Agreements (SLAs). This involves assessing the extent of support and services needed across various IT domains and ensuring that SLAs are aligned with the organisation's objectives and expectations.
