If So, You’re Not Alone… Companies Are Investing in Technology More Than Ever, But a Shortage of Skilled, Qualified Talent is Creating a Huge Challenge.
Many industry experts are stating that the lack of great technical talent is the biggest challenge facing the industry right now – and we don’t disagree. In fact, it’s expected that the gap between talent and demand will continue to widen as time goes on. So how do you eliminate the pesky challenge of finding great IT talent? Believe it or not, the cloud is the answer to this ongoing struggle.
The answer is simple… The cloud minimizes the need for an expansive workforce capable of going onsite for implementation, troubleshooting, and support. Right now, the investment of searching for qualified candidates, alongside the significant downtime and negative customer service that comes with having an empty position, greatly impacts modern MSPs struggling to find great IT talent.
If you hire the wrong person, it’s a costly mistake. If you don’t hire anyone, it’s a costly mistake. It’s a hard situation, but unfortunately, there’s simply not enough capable talent out there. Of course, you may get lucky and find that perfect technician who’s able to assist with all sorts of technologies. But it’s a long, time-consuming process – finding, hiring, and training the right person.
Today, many businesses are looking toward managed IT services as a way of keeping their technology well-maintained without spending a fortune. But here’s the thing… Cloud computing is the future of technology for businesses. Those who already leverage the cloud have seen the benefits:
Forward-thinking MSPs around the world are focused on selling cloud services for two reasons:
