Managing the complex IT landscape
Rapid expansion, change, new regulatory requirements and many other factors increase the complexity of information technology environments, driving companies to seek IT solutions and support from third-party vendors. Businesses also turn to external vendors in response to staffing challenges. As technology continues to evolve and expand, business success depends more and more on IT efficiency; however, high quality IT resources have become increasingly difficult to obtain. In a 2015 survey by TEKsystems of over 500 IT leaders across the United States and Canada, 60 percent cited that managing their workforce and attracting and retaining talent would be their most challenging objective to meet.
By outsourcing to third parties, organizations gain access to expertise and scalability that would otherwise be extremely difficult to maintain in-house. Selecting the right third-party partner is critical to the success of any hybrid strategy.
