HOW IT STAFFING FORMS A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE DURING CLOUD TRANSITION

  • When it comes to IT project staffing, it can be stressful striking a balance between too few or too many resources. If you don’t have enough consultants on board a project, you risk missed deadlines, failed projects and damaged client relationships. If you have so many resources that consultants are left on the bench without any billable work, then you’re swimming in low utilization and lost revenue.With the launch of Microsoft’s cloud platform, Dynamics 365, a number of Dynamics AX and Dynamics NAV clients want to upgrade their existing solution to the cloud – which is a lot easier said than done. As a manager, you can try to do your best to plan ahead, but it’s hard to accommodate for technical staffing issues. However, there is a way to scale your team dynamically with IT staffing. Using IT contract staffing, you can successfully prepare and never worry about having enough qualified technical resources on a project ever again.Here are five ways that IT staffing can help you remain profitable and efficient throughout any Microsoft cloud project or upgrade:
    1. Technical experts on deck  
      You get access to highly skilled technical solution architects and development resources whenever you need them.
    2. Pay for what you need
      These technical resources aren’t on your payroll, so you only pay when you need another set of hands.
    3. Hit the ground running
      Every IT staff member already possesses the skills and training required to fill the gap in your team to ensure there are no delays.
    4. Set up a contingency plan
      Plan for the unknown with backup resources available in the short-term and long-term, depending on the needs of your client and project.
    5. Maintain optimal staffing levels
      Match your workforce to your staffing needs with the flexibility to add or reduce staff as needed.
    A strategic choice used by many Microsoft solution providers, IT contract staffing is a cost-effective, low-risk way to secure technical staff that can ensure your client successfully transitions to the Dynamics 365 cloud.
