The changing times

Posted by Michael Dyer Aug 13, 2011

A  difficult economy means an increasing number of companies are  outsourcing as it is hard to justify a full-time IT technician, when  even an hour of time not being spent on productive ends can become  costly. The truth is, employees in all industries have moments of  free-time that occur when on the clock. Outsourcing your IT-needs can  alleviate that, after all, you only pay outsourced personnel when they  are working. This is why outsourcing server support or Voip technical  support, or network/desktop support can help businesses cut down on  expenses.

 

This  is mainly because production varies. A full production website, a  complex architecture with disparate systems, databases, operating  systems, small business telephone systems,  inter-connections of all sorts - these were built by your people and  are now being run by your people, certainly you can’t outsource that  tangled mess. Production support technicians have become rarities, not  only so that their environment can be run more efficiently by outsourced  personnel with a variety of in-depth knowledge, but because companies  have closed down.

 

The  trend shows that new outsource companies are employing old techs.  Before considering to let go of huge human resources expense, outsource  it, pay as you go instead. Pay for what you use, don’t pay the OASI  fees, don’t match, don’t spend so that your environment is covered by a  few sets of eyes that have always watched your servers. They will find  work at an MSP, you will have your environment watched by a wider  knowledgeable staff, and your old IT consulting small business techs might just be among them. Your environment will be better kept  and cheaper to run. Production support is a hard call to outsource,  until you’ve meet some of the folks that are used to watching multiple  complex production heterogeneous environments.

 

It’s  critical to keep your backups complete, ensuring they restore, and  watching the full life cycle of your business so as to capture all  critical data. In your business this was done in its natural way before,  by the IT folks that practically live there. They are intimately  familiar with what you have and what your needs are. These data recovery service experts can tell you what is coming before it comes.

 

In  the past, general wisdom held that outsourcing your production  environment was crossing the line; large corporations across the US have  had bean counters who have done the math for ages and concluded that  when it’s more than a staff of three it should be in-house. That was  before the available outsource resources were so highly skilled. It’s a  new day, it’s a new world, and the high-end resources available today  are not in the fortune 500 companies, either those companies have  failed, or they have let them go, they are all working for your local  technical support managed service outsourcing company.
