Many major North American companies have gained a competitive advantage by outsourcing their IT and software development needs to information technology firms. Important to the success of this strategy, however, is the ability to choose the right partners and create appropriate professional dynamics.

That technology grows exponentially is no secret. One upshot of this growth is the creation of the fastest-growing skills gaps in our economy. Whether it’s a data analytics, Web or Mobile development, an Internet of Things (IoT) project, or any other area of the digital transformation, companies simply can’t keep up. And once they fall behind, they have no time to catch up.

Filling the Skills Gap

Training teams in highly technical matters on a continuous basis is inefficient, costly, and not a long-term solution. Contracting an engineering or software consultant from an outsourced IT firm, however, is.

Outsourcing to a world-class, highly trained contractor allows a company to instantly fill its technology and experience gaps by leveraging the contractor’s experience and training.

Contracted IT professionals provide the flexibility to accommodate a company’s short- and long-term needs. Elastic arrangements are also possible in which the number of team members can be scaled up or down. This maintains cost efficiency while still providing necessary skills.

Effective contractors take a collaborative approach. They work alongside in-house staff and allow IT leaders to focus on optimizing outcomes and managing costs. Contractors neither add to an IT department’s permanent headcount, nor put the pressure on the existing team of onboarding or training new hires.
