Outsourced IT Continues to Rise

ROCKVILLE, MD (September 19, 2012) -

A survey from Bluewolf indicates that businesses are choosing to bring on more contractors rather than hiring full-time IT staff. Today, one-quarter of annual IT budgets are spent on outsourcing and according to a survey, 32% of businesses are planning to increase their investment in IT outsourcing within the next 12 to 18 months.

Not only is outsourcing IT cost-effective, but hiring outside help allows companies to become more agile and prepared when responding to business technology challenges.  Keeping up with new technology solutions, trends, and training can take a considerable amount of time away from other vital areas of a business.

According to Baseline, "CIOs are embracing the elastic workforce to gain access not only to more talent, but also to a specialized pool of workers at the top of their game who offer an outsider's perspective."

  • 32% of the surveyed companies will increase outsourced IT investments in the next 12 to 18 months.
