What is the difference between managed IT services and outsourcing?

The two terms are often taken to mean the same thing; indeed, both models are closely related to each other with one marked difference between the two. In this case, outsourcing means sourcing service or a product from a third party without them managing the supplied solution on your behalf. In this instance, you may need to hire and maintain a team of in-house professionals to look after everything. Conversely, in managed services, the third party both supplies and operates the service – there is no need for an in-house team.
