The infamous “IT skills gap” is as persistent as it is frustrating. Enterprise technology is moving faster than ever, and finding and retaining personnel to meet everyday IT demands is a headache for companies of all sizes. Small and midsized companies struggle just to keep up with an increasingly complex world of telecom and IT services. Large companies need their IT departments focused on proprietary and high-value projects instead of the ever-growing maintenance demands that come with greater reliance on technology solutions.
IT is Moving to the Front End of the Business
Despite the challenges, IT evolution marches on. So do the demands associated with that evolution and its promises of innovation, value, flexibility and scale. Executives continue to set exacting requirements for IT departments and solutions, assigning even larger roles for IT to support product and service innovation, sales, marketing, and even business strategy. The demand is growing not just for more IT staff, but for IT staff to do more – and as a result, it’s now tougher than ever to attract and retain qualified IT talent. That’s why many companies have stopped trying to keep all of their IT work in-house, and they are increasingly outsourcing their IT projects to managed service providers.
Outsourcing is Not Just an Option, It’s an Advantage
The value proposition for outsourced IT and managed services has never been stronger. In fact, given that companies of all sizes must contend with today’s IT landscape, outsourced solutions can deliver a genuine strategic advantage – they free your IT team from tedious, routine telecom and IT tasks to focus on more important matters. At TPx, we talk a lot about how our own business model evolved to meet the needs of our customers and their need to navigate the “new normal” of never-permanent, always-evolving (hopefully for the better!) solutions. Hosted Unified Communications (Hosted UC) is a core element to this value proposition.
