In an earlier article, I outlined 5 reasons why you should outsource your IT service desk. While all five of the points outlined in that article are valid, one other benefit of using an external IT service desk solution is that it frees up your internal IT teams to focus on truly strategic, transformative work that can bring more value to your business.
The World of IT is Changing: Is Your Company Keeping Up?
Over the last decade or so, some truly transformative technologies have helped reshape the world of IT. From virtualization to cloud computing and the advent of mobile devices, the business world of today has powerful technologies available that wouldn’t have been dreamed of just a few years ago. Companies that adapt and embrace that pace of change can see their businesses transformed, and forward-thinking IT departments can be a driving force behind that change.
As is the case with all companies, IT resources are finite. Time and money spent on mundane IT issues – like helping users reset their forgotten passwords or other manual, inefficient IT methods and processes – can pull your highly-trained IT staff away from thinking strategically about your business.
That’s why it’s a smart management approach to work with your IT staff to assess their workloads, and try to simplify, streamline, automate, and outsource IT tasks that are bogging down your teams and keeping them from more important work.
