In today’s fast-paced, technologically driven world, organizations are faced with the pressures of keeping up with ongoing digital innovation. Companies must strive to address and mitigate technical issues as a means for driving corporate strategy and improving operational needs.
Digital transformation is an imperative step towards remaining competitive in today’s advanced digital age. According to IDG, 85% of enterprise decision-makers claim they must make a digital transformation within two years to keep pace with the competition.
Companies must strive to constantly assess and recalibrate business processes and experiences related to key technical needs. The impact of a successful digital transformation can boost customer morale while also improving the bottom line. In fact, a recent report published by IDG found that digital transformation projects can increase revenue by up to 23%.
The problem is the majority of companies lack the appropriate IT talent and technological infrastructure necessary for executing digital transformation strategies successfully. Recent research from Couchbase has found that up to 90% of digital transformations fail due to a multitude of reasons.
Outsourcing to an IT service provider can help companies better allocate resources while providing ongoing support. Businesses with limited resources may find that outsourcing IT service provider needs can be an appropriate solution to help enable their digital transformation initiatives.
IT Talent Shortage Makes Recruiting Difficult
As companies become increasingly more reliant upon cyber technologies, the need for highly skilled IT personnel continues to grow at an exponential rate. As a result, the demand for IT personnel has created a shortage of talent causing extreme competition within the IT job market.

The vast majority of companies lack the resources necessary for staffing coverage around the clock. Outsourcing IT service provider needs to a third-party can provide constant protection and peace of mind.

The world’s collective data is rapidly expanding at an alarming rate. IDC recently released a report on the digitization of the world and found that world data is expected to grow to 175 zettabytes by the year 2025.
The emergence of such tremendous data capabilities leads to a constant evolution of technological complexities requiring highly skilled IT professionals. This may be well beyond the scope and capabilities of many internal IT departments.
Many companies are struggling to hire and retain professionals adept enough at keeping up with ongoing technology shifts. As hackers and cybercriminals employ more sophisticated techniques for breaching IT systems, data volumes explode and everything becomes connected it becomes crucial for companies to focus on creating a centralized solution to manage their infrastructure.
