Many companies have an internal IT department. Their employees know the corporate structures, the IT hardware and software they are using, as well as the users – and they are always available. Why should an IT department outsource part of their work? Generally, a department within a company works with predefined structures, core and complementary tasks and limited resources.
IT department overview: coordinate instead of code
Expertise, quality and reliability are the signs of a good IT department’s efficiency. It must comply with various requirements, but often does not have enough employees, has little to no extra time and sometimes does not have the necessary technology. This means that an IT department usually works at full capacity every day, and additional tasks such as software development or large malfunctions will quickly overwhelm the department.
Another model is much more efficient: the IT department takes on external service providers, and hands over all tasks that do not necessarily need to be completed by internal employees. The entire company then benefits from more flexible capacity for routine IT work. External experts can even take over programming work that the internal IT department employees either do not have the time or skills to implement. Even complete development of new, company-specific applications is possible and is sensible in this model.
Outsourcing advantages at a glance
Outsourcing IT services offers a lot of advantages; some of the most important:
Flexible, demand-driven capacity.
Current expertise in each technology.
Time saving in routine and development work.
Internal IT department can focus on their core tasks.
Reduced IT fixed costs and reasonable variable costs, leading to total cost savings.

Does that answer all your questions? Not quite…
Unfortunately, it can also be risky to outsourcing internal IT department tasks. This could lead to a lack of quality due to an external service provider lacking qualifications, problems in cooperation over long distances and time zones, in addition to cultural and legal complications.
