Every business is different and technology needs vary between them. Companies that want to improve their IT often find themselves weighing the pros and cons of outsourced IT against their in-house IT department. Though both solutions offer an answer to technology management, business owners need to be aware of key differences between the two to make an informed decision. When weighing the pros and cons of in-house and outsourced IT, don’t just look at things from a high level. Take time to consider the expense of recruiting, training, and maintaining an internal team, as well as the ability of a small, in-house staff to provide strategic recommendations and plan for your company’s future. With IT outsourcing, you’ll get all the benefits of a full IT department and chief information officer for a flat, monthly fee, allowing you to focus on what you do best—running your business.
