Outsourcing is all about recognising where a company’s resources are best spent. For example, what level of value or efficiency will a shoemaker get from a dollar spent making shoes against the efficiency they get spending that dollar doing their taxes? Both are important—both need to get done—but at what point is it better to focus on your core business and have an accountant take care of the numbers?
Believe it or not, but the concept of outsourcing wasn’t formally identified until 1989 and its adoption has caused seismic shifts in business. No longer merely the farming out of non-core functions, outsourcing allows a business to use bleeding edge technologies, apply learnings from completely different industries, disrupt, innovate and in the case of a shoemaker, make much, much better shoes.
Let’s take the concept of outsourcing and apply it to the day-to-day management of IT. If you’re looking to grow your business, free up resources and improve efficiency, have you weighed up your options and considered outsourcing your IT to a managed services provider? This doesn’t mean getting rid of your internal IT team, but rather, supplementing it with experts dedicated to doing the BAU stuff that frankly, your team would prefer not to do anyway!
