Finding a Cure for the Skills Shortage

Buying in specialised help is nothing new in the IT sector, but as a skills shortage has taken hold in the market, outsourcing has become increasingly necessary.

IT resourcing specialists are saying that while they can help companies locate hard to find staff, it’s often better value to just outsource entire projects.

IT Professionals with skills in programming, application development and infrastructure are in demand and as a result, companies looking to get short-term projects over the line are often out of luck. There are really only three options – keep looking and delay the project until the right staff appear, train up existing staff to do the job or outsource the whole lot.

“If they try to do with their own staff, that’s going to mean getting them trained and that’s rarely a good use of time or money for what would otherwise be a shortterm managed services contract. They have to ask if that’s the best value for their time,” said Derek Kehoe, sales director for the Ergo Group.

Outsourced staff hit the ground running, do the job quickly, aren’t distracted by other projects and frequently have lots of pertinent experience from other jobs they can bring to bear. That makes the whole thing quicker, more cost effective and more efficient.”

According to Kehoe, sometimes companies have a requirement for a specific task, such as a software development project or an infrastructure project such as an Office 365 migration or a Systems Centre move or a Windows upgrade.

We can either supply the client with the resources to do that on a contract basis and then they can manage it afterwards, or we manage it on their behalf.

“After the handover, the client company can decide how much support it will need for the project and how much of that support it wants to take on board or outsource to us.
