questions for Jason
So could you write an article on why IT Pro's are good for business, and about why companies can benefit on having a local IT admin as a resource? It seems to me that all the articles force it managers to view outsourcing as the way only way to go, while they have thousands of IT pro's that would go the extra mile for them. Instead of cutting IT jobs, create a new finance strategy. I was a part of a company that laid off 1/3 of the IT department because they outsourced a department, then they had to buy programs and hire more managers to manage the outsourced department, and put stress on the IT department to 'make things work'. Now they can't hire anymore IT pro's to keep up with business demands because outsourcing cost them way more than what was budgeted. That was a decision made all by management. Weirdly enough, the greatest ideas and most cost savings implemented came when the IT pro's had input in the decisions. IT pro's have ideas on saving money, all you have to do is ask.
