IT Managed Services or Expand Staff Capacity? Here’s the Clincher
Some companies choose to develop and invest in internal capabilities as a means to attaining a larger corporate-shared services organisation. Often, there may be some leverage in the consolidation and standardised processes for serving diverse business segments and locations. Other companies decide to simply outsource, because the experience, expertise, and time & cost-saving features brought to the table by managed service providers are too good to pass up. Expanding staff capacity would seem the easier of the two models to deploy at the initial stage. Once a company identifies the need for more resources to meet a particular growth initiative or project, it becomes pretty straightforward to add more hands, be they contractors or temporary staff.
