Why not do iT internally?

The Hidden Cost of Internal  IT Departments

Many companies, especially smaller ones, or startups, might think it is more cost effective to hire an in-house person (Joe IT) to take care of all their IT needs.  But here are a few considerations you may not have thought about.

The initial and ongoing hassles and costs of hiring a new employee

Health care costs, training, turnover, and of course, the annual salary. You have enough employee issues and decisions to make.   There is no reason to add to it.

Recertification and continuous training cost, which by the way, takes Joe IT out of the office.

Joe IT Department is not so coherent when awakened late at night anymore

Having an employee on call 24-7 is no picnic for you, the employee, and the customer… it hastens burnout and hence, turnover.

Employing someone in a foreign country is not “in house”

Not even the fastest G5 can get an outsourced team to your office if a mission-critical service is interrupted.
