The complexity of managing modern infrastructure places unprecedented demands on in-house IT resources. As organisations continue to digitise operations and embrace new technologies, IT teams are expected to retain required levels of expertise in all things.
The reality is most IT budgets have remained static in recent years, whilst the IT department is expected to facilitate everything from day-to-day maintenance and lights-on support to transformative initiatives.
It’s simply not cost-effective, or realistic, to retain a full-time, accredited resource for every device and application in your digital domain; nor is it practical to maintain a transformation level of expertise when only a BAU support level is necessary.
Many organisations choose to outsource some, or all, of their IT support requirements. Outsourcing provides greater flexibility and is significantly more cost effective than retaining a full-service IT department in house. Outsourced IT support provides access to a skilled, vendor-accredited workforce as and when it’s needed. Customers may opt for a fully managed service, or a utility-based alternative where support hours can be pre-paid in blocks and depleted as required.
Benefits of outsourced IT support
- Lower cost of ownership for your IT estate
- Rapid access to vendor-accredited technicians
- Improved systems availability/uptime
- Predictable monthly costs
- Proactive monitoring and maintenance
- Service excellence, ITIL aligned and governed by SLAs

Resilience is a core element of business operations. It is a wide-ranging principle that includes business continuity and disaster recovery But both of these are dependent upon a resilient IT and communications infrastructure. It is an organization’s ability to carry on business as usual in the event of an unexpected, potentially service-impacting incident.
Change is inevitable, but the speed of change seems to have been accelerating in recent years. This can make long-term planning difficult for many organisations so, when the long term is unpredictable, the best option is to make sure your business is agile enough to cope with change.
The impact of cybersecurity incidents, such as data breaches, can felt throughout the organisation and beyond. Vulnerabilities within any business can impact stakeholders both up and down the supply chain, with the penalties ranging from regulatory fines to a loss of revenue, significant business interruption or damage to brand and customer loyalty.
