To outsource or not to outsource? This is a question posed time and again by companies regarding information technology. Often, they go with the former because there is a perception IT isn’t core to the business. They believe outsourcing is an efficient way to reduce costs. However, an argument can be made that keeping technology in-house is just as cost-effective as outsourcing, if not more so, because in-house teams bring a valuable strategic advantage to the table.
