Managed Services

From scope to delivery

Take a proactive approach to your projects and technology with a Managed Services Provider.

managed services talent 101The traditional break/fix model is broken. Historically, when technology stops functioning as it should, companies outsource vendors to come in and fix it, then the service provider bills for services on-demand. This reactionary way of thinking can lead to delays and setbacks, not to mention the potential vulnerability to security. All said, the break/fix model is risky and expensive. 

Talent 101 does things differently.


We don’t do break and fix. With our managed services model, we offer a proactive approach to your project management and IT decision making. We don’t offer a staffing model or staffing management model. Instead, our managed services operate under a delivery model. That means we’re not contracted based on how many staff members we provide, but the number of projects we complete for our clients. Our extensive experience and innovative thinking help us drive down cost and increase efficiency for our clients. We help mitigate risks associated with contractors and agreements for SOW projects while increasing productivity.

We offer all the strategy and functions for improving your operations and cutting expenses. From scope to delivery, we handle managed services contracts that include:

  • Complete project management
  • Security operations management (cyber security)
  • Manufacturing
  • SAP BASIS Managed Services
