In The Trenches: A Look At The Benefits of IT Outsourcing

Published by SPK Blog Post
on September 1, 2011

IT outsourcing has become prominent in nearly every area of the economy — to the point that its benefits are taken for granted.  We’re aware of the saving of money, of cloud technology providing cost effective high availability infrastructure, and so forth.  The reasons to outsource IT services are known, documented, and accepted — because we’ve heard about them over and over.

However, these oft-repeated benefits of a good IT outsourcing plan are both general and broad.  There are far more specific benefits for an organization to be had from a good cloud computing plan, or application management services, than a few simple bullet points.

IT outsourcing brings diverse benefits to a variety of members of an organization that chooses to use it.  We assume the technical and financial benefits are enough, but outsourcing has many positive impacts on all staff, from managers to administrative staff.

We’ll be exploring the impact that IT outsourcing has on various members of a company in the “In The Trenches” Series.  Together we’ll take a look at many of the unexpected, little-discussed, and interesting benefits that a good outsourcing arrangement with a true partner, brings to people.

It’s time to look to IT outsourcing with fresh eyes, to see the people who benefit, not the old bullet points.
