Get the expertise you need when you need it while saving money and gaining a competitive edge.
When you navigate to a news or technology website, you may see a headline touting emerging new tools that are revolutionizing the way your organization can operate on a day-to-day basis. These tools are said to propel business success into the future. You would love to get the jump on the competition, offer better customer service, and gain efficiencies, and are eager to start new initiatives.
Then you realize your IT team members are already swamped and barely have time to meet current demand, much less learn something new, implement it, and get the most out of your investment. Or perhaps you have no IT team at all.
Outsourcing may be your answer.
In this article, we highlight the benefits of outsourcing IT talent and how it can improve productivity and overall business operations.
What is IT outsourcing?
Gartner’s glossary defines IT outsourcing as using external providers to effectively implement IT-enabled processes, application services, and infrastructure solutions to deliver desired business outcomes.
They further state that outsourcing IT talent means your enterprise can reduce costs, speed time to market, and leverage external expertise and assets as well as intellectual property. You can outsource talent for particular projects, to beef up your current staff, or to surrender mundane tasks so you and your staff can work without distraction.
Your favorite news and technology sources also likely discuss the price of IT talent, the skills gap, and recruitment issues. One survey states 64% of IT executives indicate talent shortages are the largest barrier to emerging technology adoption.
Additionally, executives must determine which technologies are essential (68%) and how to combat cybersecurity (83%) in the face of hybrid work. If you struggle with any of these issues, rest assured you’re not alone; therein lies another problem: competition for top talent.
Recruitment versus talent acquisition
Recruiting and talent acquisition are two separate matters. The competition your company faces when it comes to recruitment is fierce. Competent IT professionals know their worth and won’t settle for less, demanding high salaries and perks such as flexible scheduling, which may not match what your company can provide. Keep in mind that getting the talent you need can mean paying a six-figure salary as well as a robust benefit package.
Talent acquisition is another matter. It’s important to develop a pipeline of qualified talent for positions that will open in the future, something that’s nearly impossible given today’s IT talent shortage.
You can access a vast talent pool
Hiring a single individual from a local agency may result in a compromise. Just because someone is qualified doesn’t mean they have the precise experience you need.
When you outsource IT services, you get access to global talent and the best of the best.
A competitive advantage through increased efficiency and reduced risk
Doing everything yourself is time consuming; it can take days, weeks, or even months to complete research for the perfect product.
What about risk? Conditions in markets, competition, and compliance undergo rapid change.
When you outsource IT services, you get better cost control. You pay for the services you need without investing in infrastructure, software, and staff. Business efficiency is boosted because you’re getting expert help without having to hire full-time staff.
If your business is small-to-medium-sized, competing with larger companies and their big IT budgets is challenging. You can enjoy the same growth by gaining access to the technology and expertise employed by larger enterprises.
Security, security, security
It’s about staying ahead of hackers. Are you tired of hearing about cybersecurity threats? Your head might be spinning with all the options. How’s your firewall? What about your security policy? Do you have the latest and greatest protocols in place? Thought of a ransomware demand keeps you up at night.
Cyberattacks cost companies millions of dollars each year, and there’s no better way to lose the trust of your customers than a data breach. Furthermore, your existing cybersecurity controls may not even be working.
Get the proficiency you need
They say no man is an island, and that applies to information technology as well. No one person knows everything. This is where an IT services provider can really change your game. With a skilled staff, each with their own deep expertise, you’ll never lack the talent you need for a specific task or project, no matter how complex.
