The concept of IT consulting has evolved to a more useful place for many companies after years of in-house IT teams being on monthly or yearly payrolls. As IT issues become increasingly more complex, it’s not surprising why more and more studies show companies are turning to IT consultants rather than relying strictly on long-time IT employees.
Most recently, TEKSystems did a report for the first quarter of 2015 that showed more than half of businesses studied would hire an IT contractor this year.
It’s something for your own company to consider, especially when consultants have more advantages over those who continually work in one company for years. Plus, with increasing threats to private data, you need an IT crew understanding how to solve and protect you from these problems without initial confusion.
Here at GeekTek IT Services, our IT consultants prove this to our clients every day.
The Benefit of Knowledge Being in the Field
Do you know how many years your in-house IT team has been with you? If it’s been for more than a decade, that’s an eternity in the realm of keeping up with technology. Even if your IT team reads up regularly on the latest threats or refreshes a certification course, working out in the field is where the real experience is.
Staying with one company for years is equivalent to being boxed in while working within a singular business structure. All businesses are different in how they’re put together and how IT factors into successes and vulnerabilities.
You’ve perhaps seen evidence of how an in-house team employee didn’t quite understand how to approach a complex problem because it was so unusual. Perhaps they fixed it for you initially. Then it possibly kept recurring because your team didn’t realize the latest technology fix, or understanding how other companies solved the issue.
An IT consultant works in every company imaginable. Our consultants work with major companies throughout the Los Angeles area that deal with the most challenging IT issues today. Through our team, there’s an understanding of reality and what companies are dealing with technologically lately.
By using our consultants, you’ll have fast solutions utilizing the power of prevention so problems won’t happen in the first place. Even better, you’ll have a team with vast knowledge about the technology currently available to keep things running more efficiently.
The Benefit of Technology Knowledge
