An internal IT staff may be stuck dealing with day-to-day ‘putting out fires.’

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

If you have an internal IT staff, those people may often be stuck dealing with day-to-day ‘putting out fires’ – like answering, ‘why can’t I print this?’ or ‘I erased a file.’ And then occasionally the IT staff has to deal with something really going wrong – like a hardware failure or cybercriminal disruption.

The staff also has to stay up-to-date with patching vulnerabilities and fulfilling regulations and industry compliancies, and similarly meeting the demands of a cybersecurity insurance policy.

These issues keep many internal teams from having the space to think about IT proactively. Dealing with issues limits anyone’s ability to stand back and see the whole picture.

Big-Picture Thinking

A deep external team is an ideal supplement to an IT team embedded in the business. First by adding outside support, you automatically gain perspective. The external team is situated to provide a view of your overall IT operations. This in itself can lead to more strategic decision-making. And considering IT strategically can clarify how you will achieve the business results you’re after.

At the same time, there is no group better positioned to understand your business’ operations than an internal team. Internal IT is often well-versed in employees’ needs and technology’s role in serving your organization’s clients. And the internal IT staff is the ideal communicator to express these needs to an outside provider – they speak the same language. So together, internal and external, as a collaborative team can optimally deliver the desired results.

As tech reaches further into more aspects of doing business, the IT burden incrementally grows. So an ideal scenario is an internal IT team and an external resource to help bear the burdens. If some daily IT tasks are lightened from the shoulders of your staff, the entire organization can see the way ahead more clearly. In effect, you will have strengthened the voice of tech experts at the table so you can better use technology to achieve your organization’s highest goals.
