Understanding key issues
Internal IT team only
Sole reliance upon an internal IT team means high demands on your resources. Your investment in their continual training and equipment purchasing can be expensive and can see you left behind.
Getting SIAM to work well is not easy. It involves implementing smooth collaboration across all your service providers, breadth of knowledge in this area can lead to a disadvantage.
Doing it all takes time
Those who try to do all IT Services in-house often have much higher research, development and implementation times, increasing costs, which is ultimately passed on to customers.
Focusing on core business
Your resources are limited, each of your managers have limited time and attention, two things complex IT decisions require. Outsourcing can help your organisation to stay focused on your core activity.
Every business investment carries an amount of risk. Mitigating risk is more difficult if you have no outside, specialist to support to help you keep pace with rapid changes.
Compliance and security
Maintaining a strong security posture is constantly complicated by strict regulations and an ever-changing landscape, outsourcing IT functions can be an investment in easing this challenge.

To effectively manage your suppliers of IT services, a level of technical understanding and appreciation is required, as well as the ability to manage multiple vendors. Your supplier manager needs to understand the services levels your work requires.
