IT outsourcing – Security. Support. Expertise. Strategy.
Information Technology (IT) is a major support function for any business. Companies that invest in outsourced IT
services achieve significant benefits that help them operate more efficiently and effectively.
1. Reduced Spending with IT Outsourcing, Colocation and Cloud Storage
The main driver of IT outsourcing for many companies is reduced spending. It doesn’t take much to realize these
savings. Both capital and operating expenses can be reduced. You do not need to purchase computer hardware
and dedicate expensive square footage to develop a data center. You do not have the expenses of hiring
employees to perform IT functions such as application development to hardware installations to end user support
can be outsourced. Along with reduced payroll comes reduced expenses for training and benefits. Outsourcing
also makes costs predictable, with contracts specifying fixed monthly charges.
2. Increased Focus on Core Business
For most companies, IT is a support function, not a core competency. Outsourced IT services offer 24/7 support
and guaranteed service level agreements that go beyond what your internal operations team could provide,
letting you get more work done with fewer operational issues.
3. Access to Experts and the Latest Technology
Because IT is the vendor’s core competency, they make sure their employees are trained and certified in the
technologies they support. The IT services vendor has a team of experts in multiple IT technologies; you can
draw on the vendor’s team for advice that helps you make the right technology decisions. You get access to the
latest technology and support from a team that is expert in deploying it effectively. The IT provider will make
sure systems are patched and upgraded on an appropriate schedule.
4. Reduced Risk and Increased Flexibility
Technology is expensive, and making wrong decisions is costly. An IT services provider has a solid base of
experience that assists with making the right technical decisions. Outsourced IT services reduce the risk of data
loss. IT outsourcing providers ensure that data centers have appropriate defenses, such as firewalls and security
information and event monitoring software. IT services also reduces the risk of disruption from downtime.
Vendors build resilient facilities with redundant devices, minimizing the risk of downtime with robust backup and
recovery procedures reducing the all risks in the event of a device failure. IT services provider can rapidly bring
additional services and storage online.
5. Increased Employee Morale
Poorly implemented outsourcing can lead to unhappy employees who worry about the security of their own jobs,
but handled properly, outsourcing can actually increase your employees’ morale. Offloading IT work lets your
employees focus on the jobs they were hired to do and not venture into tasks they are not an expert at, thus
they become more satisfied with their work and less likely to burn out and leave.
Managed properly, working with outsourced IT services frees a business to focus on
developing itself. Always get
local references and be sure to perform the due diligence of follow up. Always be sure to have scheduled “state
of the union” meetings to keep all aspects of your agreement on track with reports and forecasts.

According to 2015 data from the Content Marketing Institute, social is the top B2C content marketing tactic used, followed by eNewsletters. The same report details what survey respondents believe are the most effective tactics (see image).
In today’s complex business, legal and regulatory environments, basic email archiving functionality is not enough and may end up costing an organization more than expected.
Office 365, POP/IMAP Mail, and Free/Generic Email does include several built-in general-purpose email archiving capabilities and some basic functionality, such as simple eDiscovery and high-level retention capabilities for regulatory compliance. However, for many, these simple capabilities may not be enough. For example, the search capability built into email presents several important limitations that many will find difficult to accept, especially for those trying to respond to discovery requests.
- The legal, regulatory and business requirements for email archiving continue to grow and are becoming more complex.
- The risks and costs associated with inadequate email archiving capability continue to rise.
- In today’s legal and regulatory environments, a powerful and comprehensive search capability is a must. Known email search limitations pose additional risks and costs not found with more powerful third-party archiving solutions.
- Many standard email archiving solutions only provide limited basic archiving capabilities, but do not meet the additional eDiscovery and regulatory requirements with which many organizations are faced.
- Netcom Enterprises email archiving solutions were designed around solutions to meet the most stringent and complex email archiving requirements.
Where Most Email Still Falls Short
See the specific limitations and their potential business implications:
- General Usability Issues
- Storage Management
- Lack of Granularity in Retention / Disposition
- Archive Mailbox Issues
- Defensible Disposition
- eDiscovery Search and Indexing
- Protection of Archived Content
- Longevity of Archived Email

It’s easy for website owners and those who manage digital presences to get wrapped up in what their site does not have. This is because if they can imagine a bell or whistle, there’s a big chance the ‘Net offers it or there is someone who can implement it.
The digital grass is, of course, greener on other sites, but there is reason to believe that your Web design is A-OK (and likely better than you think). Let us explore four reasons why.
IT PASSES GOOGLE’S MOBILE-FRIENDLY TEST
Anyone worth their virtual salt understands consumers’ propensity toward navigating the Web on their smartphones, which is why they have ensured their site renders properly regardless of the device in which a user is accessing it on. Whether the site offer responsive or adaptive design or an m.dot site, if it passes Google’s mobile-friendly test, it’s doing alright. Could it do better? Maybe, but the point is, sites that pass Google’s mobile-friendly test are not only ahead of the curve (remember more than half of businesses still do not have websites at all), but they are also in the good graces of Google (at least in regard to this requirement), which as of April 21, 2015 will be expanding its usage of mobile-friendly factors in its search algorithm. In other words, businesses without mobile-friendly websites will not remain competitive in Google’s search engine result pages, as they will not receive a mobile-friendly label, which will result in SEO repercussions. If there’s no other digital improvement made this year, let it be getting a mobile-friendly website immediately.
IT INSTANTLY TELLS A USER WHAT IT OFFERS
Whether a first-time website visitor arrived on a site from an ad or a search result, there’s a significant chance that they are very unfamiliar with what the company offers. They may have a slim idea as to what it does, but brands have to sell themselves – and very, very quickly. In fact, a recent Monetate E-Commerce Quarterly report indicates that it’s within the first minute of an online shopping session that brands lose 30 percent of their site visitors.
Letting users know what a website offers in about 5 seconds isn’t easy. Not only does the website need to have strong, clear copy, but the design cannot distract from the message. Five-Second Test is an online user-testing tool where businesses can upload a screenshot of a landing page or a mockup, set questions they want to have answered and get user feedback. By completing tests for other companies, businesses can earn free responses for their own tests, otherwise plans range from $20-$200 a month. Anyone can head over to fivesecondtest.com to provide feedback for other websites, which can be a learning process all in itself (as they see sites from a user’s perspective). Check out this example test (to zoom in, click on the images):
IT LOADS QUICKLY-ISH
Today’s website visitors want a website to load in less than 2-3 seconds, yet today’s top e-commerce pages do not meet these expectations. In fact, according to 2015 data from Radware, the median time to interact for a top 100 retail site is 5.2 seconds. Radware also reports only 14 percent of the top 10 retail sites rendered feature content in less than 3 seconds. Page size and complexity certainly contribute to these less-than-ideal load times, as do un-optimized images. As with almost anything, its top brands that set users’ expectations. This isn’t to say companies should give up on decreasing their Web pages’ load time (as long load times can lead to higher bounce rates, less conversions and even a hit on SEO efforts), but if they are loading in less time than top retail sites, they are doing better than they think. To test load time, check out Google’s PageSpeed Insights or pingdom’s Website Speed Test. Keep in mind, however, that top brands do have the benefit of the doubt, as consumers have background information on them.
IT DEMONSTRATES CREDIBILITY
Just like user reviews provide consumers and business buyers with more (and often seen as better) information to use in purchasing decisions, so too do client lists, security seals, testimonials, etc. Brands who let website visitors see these types of social proof at a quick glance are poised for higher conversions, as they are more deemed more trustworthy than what a brand says they have to offer (although it’s important to share that too). 7Search.com, for example, provides highlights of its clients list directly on its homepage, adding instant credibility to its services.
Adding client lists, testimonials and more definitely requires a designer’s eye and experience to ensure they add to the message and not just clutter a Web page. Another worthy example is Zendesk, demonstraing (again on its homepage) that more than 45,000 businesses trust it for their customer service needs.
There are certainly dozens of other elements that can indicate to a company that their Web design may be better than they think it is, but those who have mastered these four points are certainly well on their way to digital success. Of course mediocrity is never acceptable, but it’s important to remind ourselves that if we care enough to worry and are doing our best to improve our site’s design, we’re doing A-OK!
