Why do companies augment their IT staff?

There are a multitude of reasons companies choose to augment their existing IT team. All of which center around their desire to get more done with less financial burden.

Here are a few of the more common reasons a company might choose to augment their IT staff:

  • The company has a CIO, CTO or IT Director that already handles the high-level strategies but they prefer to bring on outsourced IT professionals for the execution of these strategies, rather than hire them in-house.
  • The company has upcoming IT projects that are time-sensitive and/or require more technical talent than they currently employ.
  • The company has experienced (or is about to experience) rapid growth and needs to quickly increase technical resources to facilitate this growth.
  • The company's internal IT knowledge/talent is high yet they prefer to outsource the day-to-day management and support to local IT professionals.
