Affordable IT management, support and Help Desk services for businesses with 50-250 network users

System Center Operations Manager ConsultantsMid-size businesses with 50-250 network users can typically benefit from an IT support plan that utilizes co-sourcing, i.e., relying on in-house IT personnel for day-to-day network support issues and using external consultants to provide advanced expertise as needed. Small to medium-size businesses can now have all the advantages of Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) ' including increased network uptime, throughput, and security ' and also have reliable access to Progent's Microsoft certified service professionals. With Progent's economically priced IT support options, you can choose a standard co-sourcing package built around SCOM with monitoring, alerts, analytics, Help Desk, and online or onsite troubleshooting, or a comprehensive 24x7x365 solution.

Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager automatically scans event records and performance thresholds from mission-critical servers and applications, then filters and evaluates this data based on an extensive internal technical knowledge base. When SCOM detects potential trouble, it runs special corrective scripts or generates alerts to warn designated support personnel. SCOM also produces trend reports so IT managers can track network health. Expertise with SCOM and a long background in computer system support allows Progent to offer IT co-sourcing and outsourcing service programs that are both budget friendly and effective.
