Tech Wizard Jeff Thompson explores the question, “Can we do this internally?”
Buying those hard or soft infrastructure components to expand capacity or refresh aging assets?
The 5-10% of cost in bundled services is easy to target for cost optimization. “Can we do this internally?” is often asked, and the answer is generally a “yeah, but …” – except the “but” is rarely factored into the conversation.
I’m here to tell you to do the opposite: buy the services. In fact, be frank about the challenges your team experiences and ask what else you should be considering. You’ll be saving money, time and frustration overall if you’re leveraging expert services where and when it makes sense.
