The debate between in-house and outsourced IT is eternal, and we sit a little biased on the side of outsourced, being a Managed Services Provider. But from a logistics and cost perspective, outsourced almost always wins.
From the cost perspective and logistics part, outsourcing IT infrastructure solutions always wins over in-house IT set-up of IT department. Let us discuss the unseen expenses of hiring and maintaining an in-house IT department:
- Cost of employment
The cost of employing and maintaining an in-house team of IT professionals can be far more expensive and cumbersome than thought of. Some of the basic costs that you have to incur in case of hiring IT employees would include recruiting, training, re-training and getting their certifications in the latest technology so that your new office infrastructure is not left behind. You also need to cover their salaries, benefits or perks, their 401k, their machine, mileage reimbursement, etc. If compared with the costs of outsourcing IT infrastructure solutions in Abu Dhabi, it would be much lesser than the in-house recruitment and maintenance of and IT team.
- Replacement Cost
Replacement of workforce at any level has some financial loss on the part of employers. If the replacement is for a helpdesk technician then the cost of replacement would be there, but lesser compared to replacing an employee at the executive level position. By outsourcing IT infrastructure solutions, you would be saved from such unforeseen and undesirable expenses.
- Cost of Downtime
Maximum in-house IT departments of new offices cannot even guarantee 99.9% uptime, which you get from MSP. The cost of downtime for small businesses is much higher compared to big companies. Things like data loss, security breach or failed backups add to the that number.
- Ineffective IT support cost
Having non-productive or under-productive in-house IT staff for the new office can cause you a moolah. With new office IT solutions in Dubai there is no question to bear the expenditure of ineffective IT support. It is the headache of the outsourcing company to deliver the results.
