The cover story in the December 20, 2010 issue of InformationWeek is titled “The Morphing Budget,” which gives an in depth overview of how organizations are reorganizing their IT budgets for 2011. According to the magazine’s research, 66% of the organizations they surveyed outsource less than 20% of their IT operations (well actually 52% outsource between 0-20%, 14% of the organizations do not outsource at all).
The article then goes on to predict that “if business units can get a higher-or-comparable-quality supply of a given type of IT service from an outside partner, for less money up front, they will. It’s fiscal responsibility 101.” So why not outsource some of your organization’s IT operations?
Outsourcing your IT doesn’t mean sending it overseas. It means hiring an IT services firm to handle all of your technology needs. Although it may seem daunting to hand over a critical part of your business process to an outside vendor, outsourcing offers many benefits especially for small businesses that lack the same resources that larger organizations have.
