What are the benefits of outsourcing IT and what are the Cons?
Pros: Reduced costs.
All costs in the outsourcing model are borne by the company performing the outsourcing, which means you don't have to pay for staff training, buying new hardware, paid upgrades, etc. That is, in fact, all costs = payment of your outsourcing provider's commission. If you calculate all expenses you'll see that your net profit will be much higher than if you use in-house model.
Cons: Worse control.
One of the main concerns of our clients is that there is no total control, as there would be in-house.
This is often not unfounded: not all outsourcing providers keep up to date with the level of developers and their ownership of the technology and servers they put at your disposal. For this reason, ask every once in a while to give you a report on the state of the servers, staff development, etc.
Pros: Quality support
Do you have a fear that the remote company will respond poorly/ infrequently or disappear altogether? You don't have to worry.
In this era of technology, 9 out of 10 companies have modern means to help you remotely. Not only will they respond, but they will solve the problem without you being in the office.
Pros: Huge selection of personnel/means
No more local limitations due to lack of staffing!
The entire world of developers, helpdesk, servers, technology, and facilities is available to you. This is one of the most important pros of the outsourcing model.
