IT Staff Augmentation

Weathering workforce shortages, retaining current staff, and managing a partially or fully remote workforce is a lot to juggle, not to mention grappling with the day-to-day tasks that can bog down any IT team. Every day spent managing minutiae is a day taken away from innovating as an organization. 

IT staff experience in cloud environments, machine learning, data science, and software are always in-demand at technology companies. But as businesses shift to more digital-centric experiences and IT becomes a more strategic business function, these skills are now in-demand at every company across all industries. This has created a shortage of talent and fierce competition for that talent.


IT staff augmentation with a provider improves your access to people who hold specialized knowledge, all while giving your team more breathing room to build revenue and refine strategy. 


Fill IT Skills Gap

Like most industries, the IT field has faced workforce shortages and fierce competition that makes it increasingly difficult to find and keep in-house talent that has the capabilities to support future initiatives. One option is moving full steam towards an outsourcing model, however, there might be a middle ground. 


Many businesses are instead turning to managed services providers to fill in specific skills gaps that they cannot find (or afford) in the current talent pool. This allows the business to retain their key IT team members for IT projects, while off-loading certain responsibilities, mostly day-to-day tasks, to those managed services providers.


Working with a provider means you can reap the benefits of multiple skilled individuals without having to find a large number of full-time employees. Plus, it might be more cost-effective and save time that would otherwise be spent on recruiting and onboarding.

Find a Way to Free Your Team from Day-to-day Tasks

Chances are, your existing IT staff is filled to the brim with daily tasks. They may also be unable to free up time to work on projects that can actually grow your business. But as IT becomes a more strategic function, technology becomes a major driver of business outcomes. Getting rid of the day-to-day allows your team to be a driver of change.


Working with a managed services provider, you can refocus your team on revenue-generating projects that will achieve your business goals. 


A managed services provider allows you to offload some of your day-to-day necessities, giving your in-house staff the space they need to come up with innovative, revenue-building ideas for your company. Providers can often assist with areas, like

  • Database Management (SQL, MySQL, etc)
  • Application Management (SAP, Microsoft 365, etc)
  • OS Management (Windows, Linux, and Unix)


Businesses might also look to providers to manage even more, like their cloud infrastructure. With managed cloud providers, you can also modernize and optimize your entire IT infrastructure. 


Adapt to a Remote-Work-Centric World

Remote workforces have been growing in popularity over the last couple of years, and the move has transformed from a temporary solution to a permanent trend. As businesses continue their move to remote teams, managed services providers can be more in demand to help with managing IT infrastructure at an onsite data center. 


Managed services providers can also fulfill help desk duties when employees need IT assistance. Your team is meant for more than troubleshooting issues on a coworker’s laptop. Put their talent to the best use possible.
