In 2022 many companies want to grow and innovate. However they are often unable to pursue growth of the business. There are a number of reasons for this but the main cause is a lack of staff. It is very difficult for companies to find the right, qualified employees, especially ICT-related staff. This causes the major innovative steps that a company wants to make are often not realised and that the costs to guarantee business continuity continue to rise. To keep the rising costs under control collaborating with an ICT partner is often the solution.
The average ICT situation in organisations
A lot has changed in the IT world in recent years. For organisations this means that the ICT environment is becoming increasingly complex. In many businesses, ICT management is done by relatively small teams, who have to take care of maintenance and security. The largest part of the annual ICT budget is often spent on keeping the current environment running. This makes innovation and change almost impossible. As the ICT environment keeps changing quickly it becomes more and more impossible for smaller in house ICT departments to keep up with all the changes.
Why outsource ICT management?
An important trend in 2022 wil be is to outsource business activities which are not the main focus of the organisation. ICT plays a major part in every business however it is not the core business activity. Also many organisations view ICT as something small or subordinate. This means that many businesses do not keep up with the developments and changes that are necessary for the company to be successful in the coming years.
Also the current market makes it almost impossible to find skilled ICT personnel. Due to rapid ICT development and limited ICT personnel makes companies look to outsource their ICT management. This leaves the organisation to focus on the core business, enabling the company to grow and develop.
From manager to innovator
When a company chooses to outsource day to day ICT management, the current ICT team will be given more time and resources to focus on development. The ICT team can then focus on innovation, automation and making processes more sustainable. The team also has the time to give substance to contemporary adjustments instead of solving small daily IT problems. This also frees IT knowledge to support the management in making long-term plans and setting a long-term vision that is necessary to guarantee the business continuity of a company.
The strategic ICT partner
In 2022 it is therefore really time for companies to make full use of the services and the added value that an ICT partner can bring to a company. Less attention should be paid to the short-term solution and much more attention should be paid to the long-term opportunities that come with hiring a strategic partner. The right ICT partner provides daily help, unburdening, but also a strategic ICT plan for the long term.
