Maintaining an internal IT department brings not only cost but also, lots of headaches and is admittedly destructive to the overall productivity of the business. On the other hand, many companies feel more safe by knowing that there is a team of colleagues with specialized IT knowledge, no matter if this team can never be fully fledged anyway and will never have the capacity to cope without the support of an external IT company.
Despite the temptation of dramatically reducing their operational cost, many companies still hesitate to take the decision to move to outsourced IT services. Some worry about security – fearing that sensitive data could end-up where it should not, e.g. competitors. Others are simply not comfortable with the idea of an external service provider taking responsibility for business-critical systems and fear that outsourcing would mean losing control of their own infrastructure.
The key factor in taking a decision to outsource your infrastructure is trust. In the same way that a company trusts its accountants and lawyers, or even its own employees, it has to carefully select and trust its outsourcing partner and feel that partner as an integral part of the organization, as an in-house IT team, that strives to provide the highest levels of "care" to you, your systems and information.
