Many major North American companies are choosing to outsource IT and software development needs to information technology firms based in Mexico. Here is why leaders in IT departments should consider an innovative outsourcing model as part of their competitive strategy.
The pace of technology increases with every new programming language, platform or development framework that is developed. As a result, digital technologies have created some of the fastest-growing skills gaps in our economy. Whether it is data analytics, virtual reality, Internet of Things (IoT), or any other area of the digital transformation, companies simply can’t keep up. (And market conditions and competitors won’t allow you the time to try to catch up.)
Fill the skills gap
Training teams on a continuous basis is time consuming and costly. It is inefficient and not a long-term solution. A contracted engineer or software consultant from an outsourced IT firm, however, is.
By outsourcing to a world-class, highly trained contractor, a company can fill its technology and experience gaps on day one. Companies are able to leverage a contractor’s experience, which has been gained from multiple projects, and use it to their advantage.
Contracted IT professionals offer flexibility to accommodate a company’s short- and long-term needs. Some even have adopted elastic business models, allowing companies to scale up or down on the number of team members to stay cost efficient while still maintaining specific and highly skilled tasks.
An effective contractor will take a collaborative approach, working alongside in-house staff, and providing new technology learning opportunities along the way. As a result, IT leaders can focus on optimizing outcomes and managing costs. Contractors don’t add to an IT department’s permanent headcount, nor do they put pressure on the existing team to onboard or train new hires.
