Have you ever watched a landscaper install irrigation? They know the best places to install the hoses, which sprayers work best at each location, how much pressure is needed, and how to avoid problems like tree roots. You could probably figure it out as a DIY project, but having someone who has done it many times ensures that it is done the right way the first time, and it gets done more quickly.
IT projects are not so different. An experienced IT person can typically figure out how to do any project. However, it is more like a DIY project if they have not done it multiple times before. For example, how many email migrations (moving email to cloud providers) have they done in the past several years? Our team has done 5 email migrations in the last 3 months.
For email migration, we have a documented process to make sure the technical aspects — the end-user experience — go smoothly. In most cases, end users do not even realize there was a migration.
So, when you are considering whether to have a project done internally or hire an outsourced IT provider, think about how much experience each brings to the project. An experienced team can often get a project done in one-third the time than a less experienced IT professional, and get it done with less downtime. Plus, they can even do it at a lower total cost in many instances.
Project-specific experience makes a big difference in getting IT projects done efficiently and cost effectively.
