The holiday season is finally upon us!
I hate to be The Grinch on Christmas and burst the holiday spirit bubble, however, the Christmas season as wonderful as it is, is also the most wasteful time of the year. Every year we spend a fortune on shiny wrapping paper, holiday cards, gifts packaged in Styrofoam, bubble wrap or shrink wrap, adorned with swing tags, sticky tape and all the extra trimmings.

When outsourcing your IT processes, there are 3 key points to consider:1. How do I know I am ready to outsource my IT?
If you are already asking this question, you should outsource your IT. Rather get the experts to assist, or conduct an assessment of your business and see where it could be implemented, instead of bogging your CIO down with issues they shouldn’t be dealing with. (It’s like getting a doctor to check your plumbing or a plumber to check your heart).
