How CIOs Outsource IT Infrastructure Management to Boost Efficiency
More than ever, IT teams are being asked to do more with fewer resources. Amid the pandemic of 2020 and the repercussions of that event, the business world’s move across the last decade toward digital transformation has been accelerated. IT environments made more complex by increased remote work, security vulnerabilities, and access to video, application, and data demand an influx of resources that businesses may be ill-equipped to allocate. As a result, boosting operational efficiency is among the highest priorities and the need for expertise and skills has never been greater.
To make up the shortfall, it’s become common for businesses to outsource several portions of their IT operations to vendors responsible for almost everything: digital communications, cloud storage, software and applications, cybersecurity, and much more. As the subscription service model has been embraced across industries and consumers, IT infrastructure management has followed suit, with vendors in this space offering a complete suite of business technology services and support for all-inclusive monthly prices. But while this shift is a natural evolution, the decision to move IT management to a third-party vendor can be a difficult one, and it’s one that many CIOs are contending with today.
