Mid-size companies with 50-250 desktop users can usually benefit from a network service strategy that utilizes co-sourcing, i.e., relying on in-house IT personnel for ordinary network support issues and using external consultants to receive advanced expertise when necessary. Small to mid-size companies can now have all the benefits of Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) ó including maximum system uptime, performance, and protection ó and in addition have guaranteed access to Progentís Microsoft Certified service experts. With Progent's economically priced IT support packages, businesses can select a basic support program built around SCOM with monitoring, alerts, reporting, Call Center, and on-location troubleshooting, or a comprehensive 24x7 support package.

SCOM proactively monitors event logs and performance counters from critical servers and applications and analyzes this data based on a comprehensive internal technical knowledge base. When SCOM finds potential trouble, it runs pre-built remedial scripts or sends alarms to notify designated service people. System Center Operations Manager also generates trend reports so IT managers can track the performance of your system. Familiarity with SCOM and skill in computer system support allows Progent to offer IT co-sourcing and outsourcing service programs that are both affordable and effective.

Progent offers mid-sized businesses two basic outsourcing service packages built on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager:
