What is a Managed Service? a few Definitions

Here at DSP we often find that many people are unsure as to what exactly is a Managed Service so we have trawled the internet (well Wikipedia) and a few of our staff to give you some definitions of what actually is a Managed Service ...

Managed services are the practice of outsourcing day-to-day management responsibilities and functions as a strategic method for improving operations and cutting expenses. This can include outsourcing database, production support and lifecycle build/maintenance activities.

Techopedia says:

A managed service provider (MSP) is a type of IT Service Company that provides database, server, network, and specialized applications to end users and organizations.
