Austin's IT Talent Shortage The Austin area's status as a technology center has created a shortage in IT talent and major challenges for small & medium businesses to find, hire & retain adequately trained in-house IT staff. It is already normal procedure for some businesses to keep in-house IT personnel scaled back to the bare minimums required to run the organization's infrastructure and maintain technology-based productivity for other departments. The hot IT job market in Austin and relatively low supply of already-trained IT workers makes skimping on your in-house IT staff even more dangerous than it has been in the past. Retention has become a big issue, as IT workers have learned the value of moving from firm to firm with big salary increases.
We see the effects of this problem on businesses of all sizes during our managed IT services work in Austin, Cedar Park, Leander, Round Rock, Pflugerville, Kyle, San Marcos, Bastrop, Buda, Hutto, Waco, and Waco. More and more local firms are relying upon our Austin managed services team to take repetitive IT functions off the plates of their inhouse IT staff, and some firms have reduced to just one in-house IT coordinator to manage the relationship with our IT services team. This type of co-management structure of IT management allows us to operate as a full-service IT department and allows local businesses to plug into our wealth of IT expertise.
