Gain Higher Education IT Efficiency Through Mobile Remote Monitoring and Management(RMM)

You would be hard pressed to find an IT environment tougher to manage than Higher Education.

Top Eight Considerations for Selecting the Right RMM Solution

Managed IT services providers (MSPs) in charge of monitoring and managing your systems and your network health do so often using scripts, homegrown solutions, commercial software, or a combination of all of them. One problem with this approach is that you have a solution that become unsupportable over time because scripts can fail without proper maintenance.

And using multiple commercial solutions fails because vendors often get into a finger-pointing match during troubleshooting sessions with each other, while the customer, you, suffers.
