3. Flexibility and Adaptability
If a business does not have a consistent need for IT support and system monitoring, organizations sometimes think that the most cost-effective decision is to simply assign some of those tasks to a manager and hope for the best. However, this approach certainly doesn’t ensure that their skills are relevant or adaptable to every situation that can arise.
Conversely, companies enjoying rapid growth face the demand to scale operational infrastructure quickly to support new staff and serve a larger customer base. Relying on an in-house IT team may not be the best solution as the IT team and salaries may need to expand to meet these new demands. Furthermore, as growth drives increased demand on infrastructure, the current staff might lack the flexibility and training needed to cover expanded technologies thereby hindering progress.
It’s common knowledge that hiring new IT personnel is not an instant process. New staff requires talent searches, rounds of interviews, and onboarding—each of these steps further postpones your goals. And even when these steps are completed, added delays exist for training on your specific business technologies, hardware and software licensing purchases, and any needed system restructuring to accommodate this growth. With these considerations taken together, in-house IT teams can be inflexible, challenging to scale, and cost-ineffective for many businesses.
